…it truly is my favorite holiday! It beats my birthday, Christmas, Thanksgiving…it is just awesome! Back when I lived where it was WARM and SUNSHINY we would head to the lake for a day on the boat, water skiing, jet skiing, fire crackers! And my Best Friend who now lives in Italy, check out her blog HERE, and I would hit up the Steve Miller Band concert! Ah the memories of 4th of July.
This time last year I was actually flying in from three glorious weeks in Italy. One of the perks of the Hubs being gone is the excuse to treat myself (and Little Buddy of course) to a trip like that. This time of year makes me miss my friend…so Em, here’s to you friend! Happy 4th!!
This weekend I have taken in an extra kiddo. She is 4, same as my LB so needless to say things have been nonstop around here. knowing myself I knew I HAD to make it to the Y to get my run in or these kids didn’t stand a chance. This morning I got them loaded up and we headed to the YMCA so I could get 6 miles in on a treadmill in the Family Wellness Center, a room with equipment and a small wall partition to keep the kids in a play area where we can see each other. I wasn’t in 2 miles before I started hearing, “I’m hungry.” “I need a snack.” “I gotta go potty” “I’m super hungry.” “I’m thirsty.” So I upped the speed and got my 6 miles done in 52:12/8:41 pace. I could have gone faster but I was trying to enjoy myself and buy some ME-TIME too. I’m just glad I got it done. This week’s mileage is a bit low but I’m not worried. Week 4 of Marathon #2 Training D.O.N.E.
I hope you all enjoy your holiday!!!
