Did you guys know that this tiny little corner of the interwebs got #47 in this Top 100 list of Running Blogs? Crazy and exciting right? It got me thinking about this little project of mine…
I wish you guys knew how many times a day I think about my blog, about specific feeling I should put on my blog, about a topic I should post about, etc. I’ve been feeling like, in the past few months, I’ve been pulled in so many different directions. But just this past week I have decided, like really decided, that I will no longer have time be my excuse for anything. For blogging, for running, for being a good mother, even for tiny things that should come easy, but haven’t lately.
After posting on Facebook about my blog making the list, I read Stephanie’s blog post about posting everyday in September. Then I thought, hey I want to do that! Yes, you read right. Every day. I think I can do it! I’ve run 24 marathons- surely I can blog daily for 30 days right? Thank you for the idea, Stephanie!!
So I’m gonna try. Even if it’s a random picture from my camera roll and a silly statement, you still have to be proud of me, mmkay?
Couple things to catch up:
- I am currently recovering from a flu/strep throat/cough/cold marathon that is still hanging on by the threads. It has been the WORST. It has affected my running, my endurance, and my confidence in CIM training. I am praying to be healthy very very soon.
- We are headed to Newport Beach tomorrow for a week by the sea (after a ten miler in the morning.) My kids are getting too old to miss so much school and after school activities so this might just be our last year spending Labor Day week there. I am going to cherish every second!
How about some Camera Roll for you:Sometimes when I think of all the fitness I’ve lost over the last 4 months, I look at my keys and I think, that was a pretty cool thing I did last spring. Maybe I’m not such a loser after all.
And look at my Lou. She was so excited to be Star Student. Each child in her preschool class had a turn being Star Student this month so they could all get to know each other. Look at the bottom left of her poster… her favorite thing to do is play Barbies and she drew her Elsa Barbie. When I looked at it I thought, hey that’s a pretty good Elsa for a 4 year old! When she got home from school she said all the kids loved her poster because “no one else had diamonds around their name like me.” Winning at motherhood! Thank you rhinestones and hot glue gun!
And lastly, a little bit of Nora Ephron geniusness. I watched When Harry Met Sally on the flight to London and it was just as good as it was the first time I watched it.
