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…

Where Have You Been?

Hey there! Sorry, I thought I’d take a couple days off. Did you miss me? It’s ok, if you didn’t. Things were a little busy and somewhat uneventful. Ok, let’s see…

Monday…the first day of swim lessons! It was a little weird being at the pool – as a patron, and not an instructor. It was nice though – just to enjoy watching my child in the pool. Oh, and then there’s the infamous June Gloom. Never fails to come back for the first days of swim lessons…or all summer. Sometimes. Yep, I don’t miss that either!!

The rest of the day was filled with some household responsibilities, but of course ended with teaching my Insanity class! It was fun too!! I mean, it’s always a great time, but I love it when I have a big class!!
