Time for a new gratitude list. My chest and lungs hurt, I've been struggling with my runs, and I could easily throw myself a pity party today so once again I need to remind myself of how good I have it!!
-I'm thankful that Katie is my savior and she ran to pick up Max on Monday! I would probably not throw this out there but if she quadrupled her daycare rates I still wouldn't switch. I LOVE her and so does Max!
-I'm thankful that Joe has been doing all the cooking and grocery shopping the last couple of weeks. My kids are eating the weirdest combinations of food but he is like the walking food pyramid and they aren't eating junk!
-I'm thankful team USA spanked Canada tonight even though I'm Canadian and all of my extended family has disowned me!!
-I'm thankful the weather has been decent the last couple of weeks (if only they could scrape the ice off the roads) I've been able to get a lot of outdoor running in!!
-I'm thankful that Ryan's team won the district tournament and are headed to regions. They have a fantastic team and could very well win the state tournament. I am so excited for her and today's game was like winning the Olympic gold for her!
-I'm thankful for all my great hockey friends and the incredible amount of fun I've had traveling with them this year. It is the time of year that I am also thankful that the hockey season is winding down and I can soon spend an entire weekend in my own house. The kids and I are having movie marathons and not moving off the couch for the entire month of May..lol!!
-I'm thankful that I've been running pretty hard since April and have not had one single injury (knock on wood)!!!!!
-My latest obsession-Caribou Mahogany!
-I'm thankful this blog panned out for me and it is now 8 weeks out from Boston and I haven't quit! I really am soooo thankful for the many blogger friends I've accumulated and hope to meet many of you in Boston!
-Lastly, I'm thankful for my Penpal/ aka Kara Goucher/ aka Joni! I bumped into her through this blog and found that we have a downright freakish amount of things in common. By downright freakish I mean downright freakish!! She could practically be me-only blonder, shorter, cuter and faster...lol!! Anyway, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and can't wait to meet her one day!
Sending it to the printer and posting it on my fridge!! Finished up with week with 56 miles. Did the 30 day shred 4 days and didn't do one stitch of cross training-Oops!
This is what we do for fun around here and proof that I will never make the Olympics!!
Poor Ryan feeling like about 100% crap before her game!
