Always Be Prepared

So, I mentioned my upcoming Ragnar Relay…and that I’d share with you, anything I learn along the way. Well, I had my first lesson the other day. Bring extra socks, (maybe with the high heel?,) and band-aids! Oh, yes…and some sort of energy, might have been helpful too.

Sharing Is Caring

Well hello there! Hey, look at that! We made it through another week!!

Things here have been a little crazy…only because daddy has been working a lot, so it’s pretty much been me n’ the boys lately! They are always ready to go, go, go!!

Yesterday was especially busy! We of course, had to get our run in, pre-swim lessons. Then, we made the trek out to visit Nonna, and play with our cousins – ALL boys, might I add. Nonna always has some kind of project for them to do…which they LOVE!!

This months project – International sheep!

Not planned, but we ended up skipping nap…because we had been given tickets to Legoland, and we had to use them that day. Let’s just say, I was done, by the end of everything! Just the same, we had a great time, and I always enjoy spending time with my boys…even if they are a little crazy! They are also very sweet.

Love these guys!!
Love these guys!!

So, that said…let me share with you, a couple other things that have been going on here.

There’s a First Time for Everything!

How’s it been going?! Are you enjoying the long holiday weekend??! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!!

Well, I know it’s been a little while since my last post. I really was planning to the other day, but then decided to hold off, because this week was full of firsts!

We Did It…

With time to spare!!
…and, with time to spare!!

Woohoo!! Yesterday, we made the 100mi goal for June! One month down…two more to go! I had planned to share this with you earlier, (i.e. yesterday,) but the kiddos didn’t want to let me finish. Anyway…

Now, I don’t know for sure, but I’m pretty sure, this isn’t the first time I’ve ran 100mi in a month. I mean, I have run a couple marathons now, so I’m almost confident, this is not a new feat.

What’s the big deal then?

Some New Tunes and Summer Running

Hey there! Here we are…another Monday, just came and went! Hope it was a good one!

I’d just like to say, the invention of the “playlist” has been an amazing thing!! Do you remember when…all those songs would have to be “burned” to a cd?! (Oh, and we won’t even go to the days before that!) It’s so great now…just save click, drag, etc…and there you go! A playlist!! Simply marvelous!! Well, let me tell you…I love making playlists!

Not, Not Training?

So, I think I’m really enjoying this “not training, training” a little too much! While I was trying to fall asleep last night, I came up with a workout, for today’s run! And, you know what?! It was fun and challenging! Especially, pushing the boys!! (I would have shared our finishing picture with you…but realized, after-the-fact, that it was not-so-suitable for sharing. Oh, my crazies…strike again! Sorry.)

Hello Again!

Hey there! Yeah, I know…I know! I took a few days off again.

I’m sorry.

Actually, I didn’t totally take off, as I’ve been working on my race recaps. I’m actually surprised how much I remember, even though many, were a while ago. I guess since I haven’t done that many yet, it’s easier to remember more about them – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

All the bling
For the love of bling!

Anyway, back to the present…
