A little time


I’m sitting at the soccer field – daughters are getting a lesson an I am
In the car – typing on my iPhone – listening to my favorite – run like a mother podcast – messaging my sister about the grossness of pork cracklins – very uncharacteristic for me – I’m in my running clothes – but I chose not to run here today – this place is seemingly idyllic but actually sketchy. Super sketchy – ok – this is the park where the half marathon I love is held & the very same park that had to change the course at the last minute due to a dead body on the course. Yes. You read correctly. Anywho, I would not venture off the sunlightened fields for one second unless I were racing throngs of people – oh there is also a sweet cross-country race here in the evening in August – LOVE that race – I ran it last year in my 5 finger shoes & placed 2nd for my age group. I’m not doing paragraphs – I’m just happy to dump the coconut a little – I finally got up at 6:40 this morning – to the sound of my cat vomiting near me – he also left a surprise from the other end- he is not a happy dieter. Anyway, I drank coffee, did a quick load of laundry & jumped quietly into my lululemon capris so I could push play on insanity pure cardio. We are getting into some busy days for my daughters & squeezing insanity in after the family gets up is quite a challenge. I try to run as well as do insanity, but honestly, some days Are grueling with Sean t at the helm, so I cut myself some slack and relish in the fact that I’m doing something outside my comfort zone that is also an investment in my health. And I can now do butterfly push-ups very well, thankyouverymuch! I feel much stronger than I ever have. I plan to stick with this until I finish it – I will start marathon training in the fall, but will still incorporate insanity each week, at least 2 days…I just realized that I’m slated for 3 full marathons next year – the Louisiana in January, the Zydeco at the end of March, and NY in November! I love that! Louisiana will be my main one; zydeco for fun cuz it’s my hometown’s first, and NY for the experience of running through all 5 Burroughs in November!!!! I LOVE that city. We are enjoying summer and the slower pace of things – we are busy, yes, but it’s all good stuff that is met with Smiles on my daughter’s faces…life is good! Thank You, Jesus!❤
