So...It's been awhile:)
I registered for Boston last week. I was in the -20 group but I have YET to receive an email confirmation. I found my name on the "entrants" list and they've charged my credit card so I'm counting this as ACCEPTED. My husband also registered when general registration opened this Monday and we are still waiting on him. Regardless of whether he gets in or not, I was thinking yesterday that it's pretty cool that my kids can say both of their parents qualified for Boston. Yes, pretty cool indeed!!
Joe sent me a flower garden to work this afternoon. I'm actually not a flowers person. They're expensive and they die and the real way to my heart is through beer and pizza (designer jeans and Lululemon also work) but today I truly appreciated these. I'm playing single mother here again for awhile and these flowers may or may not have been a result of the hissy fit pity party I threw on the phone last night.
Speaking of Joe. I miss my friend and my kids miss their dad and I am really looking forward to him being home this weekend!!
Ryan is playing volleyball this fall! I've had a blast watching her and her team is undefeated thus far! My other two kids are doing the synthetic ice skating treadmill and a speed and agility clinic. I'm back to work full time so evenings have been BUSY!!!
Training.. or running... or lack of running... or running SLOWLY rather with a stick up my ass and a wooden leg....
I have a marathon in 11 days. I have a glute strain. It's affected my training greatly. It's affected my confidence greatly. That aside, I'm going to run to the very best of my ability on October 2nd.
I get to head to the marathon with my Dad who is running his second marathon going for somewhere around 4:10 I think.
My sister who is also running and will admittedly run a 19 min. 5K split and then settle into high 8's-ha ha! We are complete opposites!! She does have a marathon PR of 3:24 but is doing this one as a fun run. I am still trying to talk her into registering for Boston again!! (Yes, I rubbed my face in a butter dish before taking this picture)
My husband who has run two 13 mile runs for long runs since July. I'm married to this weirdo. He actually wore this in little getup for his HM PR!
No, that was not his hair as can be seen here-ha!
And my daughter Reese who will run the 5k! It will be fun to just take her for the weekend. We are leaving the other two kids with family and for one weekend it's all about running and Reese!
So-this was a totally thoughtless post mainly for the purpose of just posting because I'm a poor poster and almost never post.....
