Oh my, it has been so long since I’ve wrote anything worth reading on here. Seems like most of my blog entries start out like this-me apologizing for not writing. But, I’m sure all 3 of my regular readers will forgive me, if they even noticed my absence. Right?
I don’t have much to say, to be honest. Life has been pretty even-keeled for us lately. Going to work, raising our little one, training for our upcoming race (Detroit Marathon in October, by the way. Half for me, Full for Kevin).
Courtney and I have been doing our long runs together on the weekends, and are running the race together. We completed our goal of running 90 min. on Saturday morning. Whew! It felt so good. We’re going to be ready for this race.
I kind of feel bad for Kevin because he doesn’t have a running partner. Training is difficult for him right now as he is battling a sore achilles tendon. His goal was to run for 2 hours on Sunday. He left a note for me to see when I got home from church-he had left to go running at 10am. I got home at 12:30. I was worried. Sophie was a grouch and needed to eat, so I anxiously fed her and then loaded her in the car so we could go find Kev. Thankfully, he had left a map up on the computer of his route so I knew where to look. As drove down County Farm Road, I was nervous that I’d find him in a ditch. Morbid, I know. It didn’t take me long to find him, walking on the shoulder of the road. I could tell he was relieved to see me! When he had started running, the temperature was around 70. When he stopped to walk, the temp had climbed to 90 and he just couldn’t take the heat anymore. He ended up running about 90 minutes, so he was happy with his run.
On Saturday we went out to Bryan and Kim’s for Allison’s birthday party. Allison got a new wagon from her grandparents (my Aunt Carol and Uncle Bob) and cousin Jackie pulled them around the house for quite awhile.
They had so much fun together! They’re bound to be great friends.
Now, I’m off to read a book that I’m devouring with embarrassing speed. I’ve read 400 pages of it in the past 2 days. Like I said, it’s embarrassing. More on that later.
