As a friendly reminder that everything isn’t always sunshine and Ironman races, Life has decided that I needed some lemons and that’s ok. It’s a good way to remind myself that lemons happen and I can and will get through whatever is thrown my way. Without being a total “vague-blogger” I will say that my job is a bit shaky right now, but I still have a job and that’s what is most important.
I had a really great run this morning and I am reminded how much running soothes my soul and let’s me think and release stress. The therapy cliché is very accurate for me. It always has been. I’m much happier when I run, well, mostly after I run, but I feel really lucky and fortunate that I CAN run. It’s given me a lot and I suppose since it’s the month of thankfulness, I’m feeling extra mushy about it. Me + running = 4 ever.
I’m really looking forward to Rock N Roll Las Vegas next weekend, even if I’m not really sure how I’m going to get through 13.1 miles. I have an eleven mile run planned for Sunday so that’ll help. I’d like to run a sub 2 but I may just squeak by on that. I am running dressed as Elvis so who knows how many times I’ll have to stop to sing for adoring fans.
This weekend calls for a little bit of 5K stroller jogging (I’m pushing Keara’s baby so she can race), a little bit of race volunteering, and a lot of Lloyd and S.O. snuggle time. What can I say? I’m into giving back this month. Haha.
I hope you all have great weekends. Take some time to snuggle your own families and relish in what you can do.

Sorry about whatever is going on with your job. Just keep your head up.
Boo on the lemons, but it sounds like you're approaching it in the right way. I'm technically in off season right now, so my coach has me on light or no training. And it made me so batty over the weekend that she learned not to give me more than a day off at a time. It;s not good for my mental health even a little.
And Vegas sounds like so much freaking fun!
Sorry for the lemons….it always sucks going through it. On a brighter note, good luck in Vegas! And, oh my, stroller running…it's so humbling 🙂
Thinking about you and hope everyone works out the way you want it with work. Have fun in Vegas! Rock your run! xo
Ah, boo… so sorry to hear about the lemons. Hope everything is ok! I can relate, too… going through a bit of them myself. Good luck next weekend! My coach would flip if I ran a 13.1 right now… I'm up to 20 minutes! 😉 haha!
I'm keeping my eyes open for you! Hang in there <3
