Orting with a new running buddy. Low 50's and cool.
Wow I did not Blog all weekend?? Sorry about that. Qwest still has not fixed our Internet rendering me helpless. The good news is we should be back in business Tuesday...SURE... UGH!!
Since Eugene I have had a hard time getting back to the swing of running. With Rock N Roll Seattle, my Marathon for the Cure race, on June 26th I have to get back to major mileage. My Fleet Feet buddies wanted me to run Capital City Marathon with them but I knew I was still low on energy and did not want to get hurt. So Tammy helped me find a new running buddy for a LONG run on Sunday morning.
- Sidenote: My Fleet Feet Marathon Maniac friends Janna and Tammy rocked Capital City Marathon. Janna qualified for Boston and Tammy got a sub 4 hour PR. Less than 2 weeks after running Tacoma Marathon. Maniacs indeed!!
After 17 miles, I forgot to grab Lyla for a photo, I am sure I will be meeting her again soon :)
We spent most of the day Saturday searching Yard Sales for bargains, I love Yard Sales!!! So in the afternoon I was a little spent, our mailbox is further away in the new house making the trek seem daunting. Funny for someone who runs Marathons....LOL! I am lazy! Little Stud #1 and I took the short walk. I am always EXCITED when there is a key waiting in the box. PACKAGE!! This was an unexpected surprise marked "FRAGILE." Baffled I sped up the pace back to the house. It was from Tall Mom buddy MCM Mama HERE who just finished Marathon #2 with a 14 minute PR!! All bubble wrapped up..
True to form she mailed beers too pretty to drink and a Starbucks mug from Washington DC. This made the dimples shine on a Saturday. So Muscle Man snapped my photo. I am not sure what I did to deserve such a nice gift, but I truly appreciated the amazing gesture of kindness.
- Sidenote: This is the 3rd Starbucks Mug I have received from Tall Mom Buddies. Robin and Katie have also added to the collection.
On Sunday afternoon I was anxiously awaiting Marlene's Facebook update. I had been pestering her all week with positive emails and I knew that she would get her sub 4 hour goal. Go HERE to see if she did it! It is funny how people that I have never met make my days so fun-filled. You all are amazing and I am LUCKY to have you.
- Test Lab Tuesday returns tomorrow
- How was your weekend?
