Crazy catch up

Seems like life has been crazy lately, well heck it has.

I was honored to take my great nephew Conner on his first boy scout camp out and he had a blast. I am an avid camper and love the outdoors. To be able to share this joy with him was wonderful. Best quote of the weekend was upon waking on his first night in a tent was "So you like doing this kinda stuff, huh?"-Priceless.

Prior to Memorial Day camping, Terri's daughter and grandson moved in with us, unexpected breakup with her husband. So we were busy moving her in and getting ready for camp. Crazy busy and hectic.
Memorial Day camping was great and hot but the breeze off the lake was nice. Lots of activities, a parade and kayak races. i came in 2nd under adults and could have gotten 1st but stopped to check on someone who tipped over into the lake to make sure they are were ok. That to me was more important than winning the race.

My running was off this week due to me having a medical procedure. Everything is fine but back up and running this morning with 3.1 miles....woot woot

Tomorrow is the Jim Klett Memorial 5k. This race is going to be my anniversary race. One year ago I ran my first ever 5k at this race. I will be running it again tomorrow. It is a small venue with not a lot of people or great swag but it has special meaning to me. Besides the Farmers Market is right next to the race and it will be fun going there afterwards for some good veggies and homemade pastas. Last year my time at the race was 34:34, will be interesting to see what I run it in tomorrow. I have my goals and will see how they pan out.

Cruise talking. We have our cruise on Oct 8th to the Caribbean . We are so excited. Discussing hotels, the drive and formal wear. There is four of us going !! Woot~

This weekend will be 14 weeks till my first Half Marathon!!! I am excited and scared at the same time. Am I  delusional  that I can actually do this? I am not looking for a certain time on my first one, I just want to complete it.

My sister is getting married again on 6/16. We the girls in the family took her out for a celebration dinner. Had loads of laughter and fun. I am her maid of honor per se and as a gift she and Terri conspired to get me a Endorphin Warrior Bracelet. Pic to come yet but it is soo awesome. It says Conquer! How awesome is that. Here is a pic of my big sister Dee and I, she looked away ...darn it.


  1. I will be thinking of you tomorrow! I really wish I could be there. I'm jealous about the farmer's market too!!

  2. Good luck with your race tomorrow! The camping trip sounds like it was a lot of fun. Hope everything is ok after the medical procedure.
