I ran into a...

Oh. My. Gosh. I ran into a car yesterday! Yes, a parked car. I had the jogging stroller and I guess I was not paying attention and I clipped the side of a car. Lucky I had the shade back so it was the softer material of the shade that go the car so nothing happened. Had I been running on the other side of the road or the other direction the nice clip that sticks out would have not been good when it hit the car. Phew! Thank goodness I wanted to hit the hill yesterday or I might have had a problem!

A Quiet Run

I was surprised Sat. morning when my hubby woke up with me and the kiddos. It was nice, I got a run before the day "really" started (before breakfast). I also got to run without a kiddo. While I love talking with my little guy while I run, listening to him say "Go Mommy", "Go Faster", "Don't stop running" (he is very motivating), it was nice to have the time when my mind could just get lost. What did I think about... My kids! I know, I get some time to clear my head and during that time I think of my kids! I also thought about how quiet it was while I was out, of course traffic picked up on the way back (I ran an out and back) so the out was quite, back... Not so much, guess everyone was getting their day started!

Great Urban Race

The Great Urban Race was this past weekend. We had so much fun, (we=my sister and I). The race is kind of like the Amazing Race put into one day. We had to solve puzzles, clues, do challenges. It was great, I could not have imagined doing this race with anyone else (sorry honey, we would have gotten into an argument, I still love you!)
By the way that cookie we are eating was the best cookie ever (maybe that was just because I was starving), oatmeal raisin with salt on top!
Now I will focus on raising money for Team In Training and my triathlon!

I will Tri

Forget my last post, I decided against doing a 1/2 marathon. Who am I kidding, while I love my running shoes and love me a cute running skirt I am not a "runner". I like to run, I like the feeling I get from a good run, but I am not a "good runner". I always feel like I look like a little bull dog when I run, you know goofy face, stocky body, the whole package minus the tongue hanging out (well most of the time at least). So, I decided to do a Sprint Triathlon. I joined up with Team in Training (leukemia and lymphoma society team) and will do my first Tri in August. Stop back and check out my training, I am sure some days will be very entertaining for you to read!
