Tomorrow, I will RUN!

Looking forward to my run tomorrow with Jamie at Nurse Runner.  This will be our first runner together and I can't wait.  She is faster than me, but hey...that is not that unusual.  She has just started training for her marathon so we will have so much to talk about it.  Plus this will be the first time we will be hanging out without our boys!  Isn't running great.  She is struggling with some knee issues so please visit her blog and see if you can offer any tips and/or ideas for her.

Still working on my rental house and the last two days have been DIFFICULT!  Today seems to be a little better and I think running tomorrow will be a great stress reliever.  I did get in a couple runs in the last few days and they have felt great.  It's amazing how much running is such a stress reliever.  Getting out there was the hardest part but once I was going, it felt great.  They were both evening runs and it was so nice to enjoy the blue sky's and the sun setting.  Saturday I figured I would go 3-5 miles, but my legs wanted more and I ended up going 8.5 and only ended because it was dark and I had no reflective gear on.  I really could have kept going.  Plus I wore my AMAZING running skirt that I LOVE.  I think my cousin, Jenny loves them too!  She just got her skirt and sweaty band and is in love...but who isn't when you get their amazing products.  RUNNING SKIRTS.com ROCKS!  My next run wasn't as easy but it felt good to do it.  Running was the last thing I wanted to do but knew I had to do it and of course I was so glad I did it.  I love running this time of year because of how light it is in the evening...it's the best.

Tonia is the best at these pics...You have to teach me Tonia!  I can do self portraits but getting it from this angle is hard.  Can we book a training session for full body shots Tonia...lets say September?

One week until Ragnar and I hope I will be ready, but either way it's a week away and I have to keep running.  I am so glad I had something on the calendar because with everything going on I would have for sure not been running much.  RAGNAR saved the day.  It's sure to be a FUN 24 hours!  ANY tips about RAGNAR, RELAYS?  Anything?  You know how much I love advice, tips and anything else you think might help. 

Here are a couple pictures from today with my niece and nephew in their mom's mini...I thought it was cute and had to get a picture!
Chase-Man buckled himself and everything...no one prompted him...he just did it. Not sure if I am more scared about that or what...I will just call it cute for now.

"Key Mommy" He kept asking for the key...it was cracking me up!

I suck at the self portraits too. Always end up looking like a bobblehead doll...not sure why
