1. Today I have 12 miles on the schedule. It’ll be my longest run in months. I’m ready for it, but I realized yesterday when I was looking at my calendar that Shoo gets out of preschool early today. That means by the time I drop off kids, run, and get back to the house, I’ll barely have time to shower before it’s time to pick him up again. I’m not a fan of days where I spend my entire free time running.
2. My kids have shared a lot of different illnesses with their dad this year. I’m not sure how I’ve escaped, but *knocking wood until my knuckles bleed* so far I have. The newest thing that Jones shared was pink eye. Beer Geek came home with it last night. I’m just happy that I haven’t caught it yet. Running 12 miles in my glasses or not being able to see is not high on my list of activities!
3. Sign up opened yesterday for the Marine Corps Marathon. As my long time readers know, I started this blog to
stop boring my family document my journey to that marathon in 2008. It was all I could do yesterday to NOT sign up again. It’s such an awesome marathon. It does, however, necessitate training during the summer when it’s hot out and my kids aren’t in school. And did I mention, it’s hot out? I loathe Virginia summers. I loathe them even more when I have to do 20 mile runs during them. I just hope the darn thing sells out soon so I don’t accidentally hit the register button. ;o)
I’ve updated my Virginia, Maryland, DC Running Bloggers page with all the blogs I read and/or got emails from. If you aren’t on there and want to be, email me at mom2shoo at gmail.com and I’ll add you. (And if I accidentally missed you, sorry, life’s been a bit crazy.)
Also, blogger says I’m nearing my 700th post – that shouts “Giveaway” to me. So, the question is, should I giveaway one of my favorite running products or something beer related, hmm….
