Races and Friends

The end of summer is time to gear up for fall races.  I love fall races – the weather gets cooler and there are so many great races to choose from.  Thankfully I have kept my mileage up because I can’t fully commit to a training schedule until the kids are back in school.  For now I have to be happy with 8s and 10s and an occasional 13 or 14.


Here is my race schedule so far…  I have to admit I am thinking of adding one 5k in there.  Just one.  Melissa – come run it with me.  I guess it has been long enough that I have forgotten how painful they are!

Summer fun continues.  Beautiful beach days that will unfortunately stop suddenly.

Dinner with friends.  This restaurant has $1.00 kids meals sometimes, but you have to order off of the kids menu.  Our boys just might have outgrown this.  They each had two kids meals!  😉

Dinner was followed by the biggest ice cream cones you have ever seen.


Dane and I took advantage of some down time by playing ping pong.  He is being picture shy lately though.

So, I am wondering, how far in advance do you sign up for races?

Happy Friday

It’s Friday!  Yay!  We started today off with a surprise awards ceremony for Dane.  He won the character award for trustworthiness at his school.  I completely agree –  he is a kid you can really count on.

Daward2 .5.JPGHe had some idea he was getting an award because a little girl in his class who was receiving another award opened her secret envelope and read it to the class.  LOL.  I don’t think she is getting the trustworthy award anytime soon!

CB 2.JPGI realized today that basketball season is starting really soon!  Less than two weeks now for Aidan.  I decided to relax the “no balls in the house” rule for a little while to get prepared.  The boys are now allowed to dribble (no throwing!) their mini basketballs around the house.  They were thrilled with this news!  The pets on the other hand – not so much.  I may loose my sanity as well.  I guess we all better get used to the sound of bouncing basketballs though.

bball2Dane brought this picture home from school today.  I love my boys’ sense of humor.  It is timely too with my running club’s Thanksgiving 5k coming up.  Tara – is this your new catchphrase?  https://www.facebook.com/gobblewobble5kdrumstickdash

turkeySo, I am wondering, how many hours until Monday, when I can finally run again?!
