So-I am not dead. I FEEL dead today and I think I smell like a dead body after sweating to death all afternoon on the beach but NOPE, not dead. I have been really absent lately but the two weeks of summer we get in Minnesota can do that to a person! Also, the fact that I've had a normal family this week with my husband home!! I could try to organize here but instead I'm resorting to my typical format of unproofed unorganized pictures and thoughts.
*Had a great 4th of July weekend!
(seriously don't know how this girl next to Reese could be wearing black tights in over 90 degrees. I considered running naked it was so hot)
*Ran a 5K with my daughter Reese. This was a tough race for her with the heat but still ended up a good day as the 3 runners in this family all came home with AG medals. A 1st, 2nd, and 3rd:)
*Officially started my marathon training plan on Monday-the 4th. I was SUPER excited to actually start this! I'm using a modified Hudson plan that tops out in the low 70's.
*Almost through week one which will net me 61 miles mostly at easy pace. Good stuff starts next week:)
*I'm back to running early mornings which I LOVE in the summer. Winter, not so much but summer, just starts my day off right!!!!
We are heading out on a little family trip leaving on Sunday! I'm so excited to have some time with my kids doing stuff like this:
I will also get opportunity to run this again:
Instead of my typical this:
And to be truly random a picture from mile 20 of my marathon. Yes, I'm walking and yes, this is one of my better moments:) Death captured on camera....(and why is this guy in the cotton t-shirt beating me....perhaps because he's still running and I'm WALKING)
That's a wrap! Seriously off to catch up with some of you here while I lay on the floor typing and my husband (aka cheap massage therapist) tries to murder me by working on my right hamstring! Have a great weekend:)
