Is it August yet?....No? Crap....
I love my boys more than anything. I love them no matter what.
I do not LIKE them when they fight over the air that they breath. It is driving me nuts. They are just 18 mos apart so they should get along perfectly...yeah not so much. My older one has decided he is his brother's third parent and my younger son is not having it. His solution? To punch his older brother on the nose. I cannot say I blame him for being mad but I am not a fan of the hitting part.
They are taking swimming lessons this week. I got a really good deal for private lessons, it was buy one get one free. Cannot pass on that. Is it me or all swimming instructors are good looking guys...not that I am complaining or anything :) It is like they are coming out of GQ Magazine or something!
I am heading back home in a few weeks and I went shopping for clothes. Now I hate shopping. I had to go because most of my clothes are too big again. I am OK spending $ on running clothes because I use them every day but regular clothes...it does not matter much to me if they are old or too big but I do want to look OK while I am visiting my family and friends..I do have some pride in me! :) Went to Old Navy and tried on some summer skirts.
I first picked up the MEDIUM size..put it on and it fell on the floor! So I went down to Small. It was OK but it looked funny so I tried the XS just to see and that is the one I bought! Extra Small. That is crazy for me. I used to wear XL..sometimes even XXL. I would never had to try a smaller size on..it was always a bigger size. This skirts may be made bigger than normal..I don't know. XS is not my "normal" size. It is when I buy clothes like that, that I realized I have come a long way from being the sad gal who was sitting on the sofa with 2 babies letting herself go not knowing how to get back to who she was before being a mom. Because of that, that day size did matter. It reminds me that I am healthier, stronger and happier. Not because I have a skirt with a XS tag in my closet...because of what it represents.
Speaking of skirt, I have a Gym Girl Ultra Skirt by Skirt Sports for sale.
It is black and size MEDIUM. I wore it 3 times. Paid $65 plus tx, selling for $30 including shipping. If you are interested let me know.
Just one more run to do before my 10th half marathon!
Have you ever ran a race where walking is forbidden? It is at that race.
Not just no walkers allowed. NO WALKING.
They even have a "walking police" on the course; a car who will stop and "evaluate" situations where runners are walking on the course.
On the website it did say no walkers allowed and that runners must keep a 13 min / mile pace but it did not say no walking allowed for water or for people who use the Galloway method. Now some people are freaking out on the Facebook page and are not happy to learn they actually have to run the whole thing.
This is a downhill race and I think I understand the no walking rule, it would be dangerous to have many people stop to walk while others are flying down the hill. I am pretty sure they will not pull the people who are stopping to grab water at the stations out of the race. This should be interesting. Have you ever ran a race with a no walking policy?
