It’s hard to believe that it’s that time again…Our monthly coffee date. I can’t believe a month has gone by already. Why does June must fly by when February last forever?! Want to have coffee with us too? Link up with the hostesses Jill, Lynda and Nikki
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I just put my 17 y.o. daughter on a plane to spend the summer in Spain. She will be studying and living with a family over there. It was so hard to let her go but I know she will have an incredible experience and be able to be a little more independent. I already miss her though!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had a fabulous time in Vermont last weekend with my old college room mate. It was so great to spend some quality girls time together without husbands and kids. The weather and the scenery were beautiful. I loved running and hiking there. You can read more about it here.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I did a 4th of July 5k with my 14 y.o. son yesterday. He doesn’t really love running and I know he did for me. I probably don’t have that much more time before he won’t want to be seen in public with me so I am enjoying every minute of it. I also got to meet up with some MRTT moms from some of the other chapters so that is always fun. They all like to get decked out in costume.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am doing the Foam Fest obstacle course race next weekend. This is way out of my comfort zone. I am embarrassed to admit that some of the obstacles look kind of high and scary. And lets not even mention the getting completely dirty part! I’m sure we will have lots of stories to tell after that one!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that we will be meeting up with some friends in Aspen at the end of the month. I love going there in the summer when I think it is even more beautiful. We will be hiking, white water rafting and biking. Sometimes the altitude bothers me there so I have to try to remember to ease into the athletic activities and give myself time to adapt. That’s not really my style-I usually like to jump right in on vacation.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I’m really happy that my running is slowly coming back post injury. I was really worried that my stress fracture injury might linger longer than I anticipated. I have my first Ragnar race in September and I want to be ready. I’ve just accepted the fact that I am not running as fast as I was. I am just happy to be running pain free and to be adding the miles back in slowly.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have a few days to myself this week without any kids or husbands. I’m not quite sure what to do with myself. I guess as they get older, this will happen more and I will get used to it. I feel like I should take on some sort of project or clean out my closets. Or maybe I should just let all the laundry pile up and walk around naked-LOL.
If we were having coffee…What would you tell me? Have you ever done an obstacle course race? Have you ever had the house all to yourself?
