Post 297

You know you are addicted to Blogging when...

You have nearly 300 posts in 9 months.


You know you are a Runner when...

Your Long run got postponed for a day and you are disappointed.


You know you are in Love when...

Your other half is sick and you fee like part of you is broken.


You know you are Tired when...

You can barely focus on reading and commenting in the Bloggy world.


***Yesterday I played Stay at Home Mom to the Little Studs and a VERY SICK Muscle Man...let me tell you it was DRAINING!! Respect and admiration to the Stay at Home Moms and Dads in the world... My coffee is not helping this morning and we have plans to go to a birthday party today.

I have a Second Running date with Amanda (5 Miles to Empty) for tomorrow...YIPPEE!! 11 miles of FUN.. This week I totally made up for last week of zero running. I ran every day expect for Friday... CRAZY!! And guess what?? I made it over the 900 mile mark. Yes folks less than 100 miles to get to my Goal!!!

Wishing you all an amazing weekend. I am off to see if the Richmond Marathon has online (stalking) tracking.. HUGS!!

I'm a SAHM twice a week and it is NOT easy. Going to work is totally a break. :)

Hope everyone gets better soon. And congrats on 900 miles! Amazing!

I hope Muscle Man feels better soon. Take care of yourself, you don't want to get sick too. Being a SAHM may be exhausting, but it is worth every minute to me. :D

Jo Lynn said...

I hope your hubby feels better today. Being sick is the pitts!

Fran said...

Hope muscle man is feeling better soon.

Have fun with Amanda on your run together.

Nicole said...

Great post! And indeed, playing Stay at home mommy can really take it out of you.

Melissa said...

I hope he feels better soon and that your run goes really well.

Hi Mel, new follower :)

Great post. I've got a blogging addiction too :) I've got about 450 posts this year... yeah, way more than one a day.

Had a question for you. Got referred by Kerrie of mom vs. Marathon. I'm SoCal born and bred but am going to chilly and rainy Seattle next weekend on business (MLS Cup at Qwest Field). Anyway, was scheduled to run 18 miles as part of marathon training (my first ever 26.2) but am kinda worried because it's chilly and rainy in Seattle, or so I've been told. Anyway, do you have any tips for running chilly/rainy weather? And any ideas of where to run in the Emerald City? I found a few routes online but not sure if there were any areas that are better to run in.

Also I work from home most of the time so that pretty much makes me a SAHD and it's certainly a challenge :)

TMB said...

as a Stay at Home Mom - you're right, it's not easy. Hope you had fun "tracking" the race. Have a great run tomorrow!

Our Love On The Run said...

Taking care of 3 sick people is probably equivalent to at least 10 miles! You're such a super mom! Hope everyone gets well soon and I hope u don't get sick!!! Enjoy ur long run tomorrow. I'll be hittin the trails

Velma said...

Have a great weekend - I hope hubby is better.

Alicia said...

I played nurse all last week (swine flu)and was totally exhausted by the end of the week. Be sure to get some extra rest tonight before your run tomorrow!

Running, kind of. said...

HA!! I am looking forward to our second date!

And it seems like just yesterday you were at your 200th post! WOW!

And L.B....welcome to Seattle next weekend! I dare to say we should meet up for a long run! I only need 13 but it would be cool! Maybe even Mel would joing us? Just a thought!!

See you tomorrow Mrs. Tall Mom!

Katie said...

LOL I agree with most of those!

I am going on a long run tomorrow.... hoping it's the deciding force between whether or not I do the marathon in Feb. I'm sooo scared to commit!

Linda said...

I hope your hubby gets better. There is so much yuck out there. I really hope you don't pick it up and that the boys stay well.

Remember to wash your hands regularly, drink lots of water and eat healthy.

Stay well

Lisa said...

OK, do ALL the running bloggers live in WA? Geez, you guys are lucky to be able to run together. Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

Anna said...

Thanks for the sweet (and motivating!) message on my blog. Hope your muscle man feels better soon, and here's to hoping your don't catch the puke bug!

Carly said...

I am jealous of the blogger meet ups. I hope your hubby feels better soon.

Alisa said...

Hope muscle man gets better really soon.

You are so going to hit 1000 miles. I'm just a little bit behind you but still hopeful I'll hit 1000 even if it means I have to run like 20 miles on Dec 31 to make it!

Believe said...

I can't believe you have run over 900 miles!!! WAY TO GO!!! :D

Candice @ I Have Run said...

I love this post!! I hope your hubby is feeling better. It is no fun when the man of the house is sick. And I'm so jealous of your long run!

Janice {Run Far} said...

I have been nursing sick ones and now me for over 2 weeks. I am so sick of the germies in my house. UGH....

I have felt so yucky that I only ran 10 miles this entire week... now that is sayin somethin. :) Hope your house gets to feeling better soon.

Nicole said...

Hopefully you've recovered from your day as a SAHM and that Muscle Man in on the mend! I work part time for a reason! That SAHM gig is HARD!! WTG on getting close to 1000!!

Becca said...

Good luck with caring for everyone! I hear ya about having to postpone your long run. I was supposed to do mine this morning but my 12 hour shift last night wiped me and knowing I had another ahead of me this morning when I got up to run made it impossible for me to get out of bed. That's the nice thing about running though, you can do it anytime and anywhere.

Morgan said...

Yeah for run dates!!!

I hope the fam is back in working order and all is well in the Tall Mom household!

Marlene said...

You're a posting machine!

Hmm - giveaway for # 300? ;)

Hope you had a great weekend and that MM is feeling better!

Laura said...

Hope everyone is feeling better. I was seriously burned out after taking care of the husband when he was in the hospital. Just wiped.

I hope your fam is all better. I am playing catch up. My littlest gave me his flu. Yuck! Not the birthday present I wanted.
