High Five Friday

Welcome New Tall Mom Bloggy Pack Members!!! Yesterday was my LAST run of Marathon training, next up my 26.2 Victory Lap :) Muscle Man joined me for the first 3ish miles, we adventured through the beauty and hills of Bonney Lake. Along the route Muscle Man spotted a Batman figurine, Little Stud #1 loves Batman so he grabbed it. for the next mile we chuckled about what people thought of a grown man carrying a Batman figure while he ran. I dared him to pretend to make Batman fly....he wouldn't. I dropped him off and took the scenic route along Lake Tapps...I LOVE LOVE that route. I felt like I could run all day, legs feel great and rested.. A small twinge of knee pain, but I am sure it is because I was really focused on it. 6 miles done!!!

I will have a FULL post tomorrow about Eugene, reflections, thoughts, ideas, etc.. I know many of you depart Bloggy land on Saturdays. So if you want to track me go HERE and enter #797.

your runs sound so much prettier than mine. I wish we lived somewhere scenic but I'd have to drive to get somewhere like that. lol although for my longer runs that's probably not a bad idea.

good luck, can't wait to hear all about it!

Muscle man carrying Batman reminds me of my little guy dressed like a knight for our run last Saturday. My guy was as happy as could be and I bet yours was too! Boys...

Lisa said...

you often post about odd things you see on your runs, I wonder if someone else wrote about a 'guy carrying a Batman doll running down the trail'! ;)
