Saturday Scone

20160805_214928.jpg

I’m carb loading for next weekend’s 6-hour (20-24 miles?) endurance run.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

FYI:  Next weekend for the endurance run, I will absolutely stop before and/or if I hit the marathon distance because this is not where I want to do my first full-out marathon… I would prefer that to be like… ohh, say, London maybe… or Tucson… or even Portland… but definitely not Bellingham (not that I don’t love Bellingham, I do, but that’s not my dream first marathon). Just saying.

Enjoy today!!

A Little of This… Some of That…

Detox Sucks

The holiday celebrations are over now as mum-in-law Janet has gone back to the UK.  No more debauchery for us… we have races coming up… all… summer… long.  With the first one being this Saturday. And by debauchery, I mean this:

Well, at least until Saturday night after Rock ‘N’ Roll Seattle, then it’s Mexican Food and karaoke!

yeah baby

Plantar Fasciitis

I haven’t been brutally honest with everyone about my foot health.  After running SLC in April, I developed heel pain.  And then I got the flu.  And I was bed-bound for a week.  And when I finally was able to get out of bed, I couldn’t stand on my feet because of the pain.  Holy wow! So I’ve been hating life this past month (not really, but you know what I mean), and this is my new norm:

Ice baths.  And rolling.  And ice packs nearly every hour.  And tape.  And ibuprofen.  A LOT of ibuprofen.  I have good days and I have bad days, but I’m hoping for a good day on Saturday.  I’m still going to participate in the race, and I am risking a DNF, but I just don’t have it in me to quit a race before I even start.  I’ve tried 2 different types of shoe inserts and have a completely different type on the way now.  At this point, it certainly can’t hurt.  So stay tuned… will she finish or will she DNF?! (spoiler alert:  she will finish)

Graduation Day

And last but not least, my baby boy has now graduated from the 5th grade and is on to the middle school, although he looks like he should probably be in high school.  We went to dinner the other night and we asked for a children’s menu.  The hostess was confused.  She looked behind us to see if we had a young child or if she missed counting somebody.  I had to explain to her that the kid towering over her was only 11.  Mind blown.

Anyway, what proud mom doesn’t want to show off her child’s accomplishments?!  So here ya go… scenes from today (and he should be paying me big money for not posting the video of him #singingnotsinging).

This is his 5th grade teacher. She was in the 5th grade the year he was born, in 2004. Anyone feel old yet?

Cheers!!  Have a great rest of your week!!
