- I'm sure nobody in blog land knows much about the Hood To Coast Relay this weekend. No? That's funny because I can't log on to facebook, my blog roll, or twitter without seeing one or all of the following words: Nuun, Team, Hood, Coast, Relay, Nuun. Ha! Good luck to you ladies. I can tell you are very excited! As you should be! I hope I get to see you at the beach and at least have a beer with you and see your lovely faces! I will be running on a team with my husband and some people we have never met before. No Team Nuun but perhaps I'll take some Nuun along to keep me feeling perky! Can you mix Nuun with Beer? Yes Beer...my husband put Beer on the list for what to pack for the vans. Apparently Beer was/is part of the overall HTC experience. We are not a team running for time/competition. I'm shooting for a base pace of 7:45/8:00 and if I'm feeling frisky I might try to do some 7:20's for a marathon pace "feel". I'm leg 10 but I didn't look at my leg or confirm that for sure until last night. We leave tomorrow. I'll be plenty prepared. I meet my team members tonight and then GO time! My goals: 1. Have fun! 2. Don't talk and laugh the entire time (I've heard this can be rather annoying when you're in a situation like this...Ha! Go figure). 3. Enjoy getting to know new people 4. Soak up the time/experience I have with my husband...great memories! Oh, and pretty cool shirt this year compared to the last couple times I did it.
Good Luck to all of you that are doing it! Nuun Team or Not! :) Would you have a beer between legs? I will!
- Colorado was great! I miss it.
|Lucky me! I got to meet Jill! Thanks for lunch Jill! After lunch we did a little walk through of REI. So fun and Jill is such a sweet, funny, and genuine person! So great to see you Jill.|
|Red Rocks Concert! So Awesome!|
- Runninghood Sticker. Never something I was seriously going to do but since my mom was playing around with her Sticklete runner art, I thought it would be fun to try out a sticker. Clearly for fun. Megan, from Build-a-Sign had offered to send me some to try it out so I finally took her up on the offer and made a sticker. Megan was so helpful and made the process quick and easy. Thanks Megan! I love my little sticker and I'll be sending people your way in the future! I have 30 of you that said you wanted one for your treadmill, journal, and various places around your house. My lack of blog mojo has affected everything blog related so I have not sent those out yet. I'm still waiting on a few addresses for people that said they wanted one.
- Reading. I'm finding myself in need of a deep read. Something to make me think, touch me to the core, and awe me with the beauty of how it is written. I'm hoping that this next book I'm reading will do the trick. So far so good.
My allotted blog time is up! I'm really making a point to be more alive with my kiddos when they are awake and the first one has just now started stirring...I know, I'm so lucky today...it is past 8 and they are still sleeping! Lots of my mind lately! LOTS! Motherhood reflections, spirituality, life goals, family, reevaluating where I'm at with many things, future plans with my career...booking tickets to the Dave Matthews Concert in George, Washington (will be epic!)...lots of thinking and adjusting to some new shifts my life is taking.
Hope to catch up in Blog land some day. For now, I'm giving myself the okay to take a break. We all need that sometimes. Permission to just "lay low", "fall behind", and "view from a distance". Hope that you understand. I promise I'll respond, comment, and be more active again soon! Thanks for sticking around.
