Yesterday was a great day. In the Shelly dictionary of life "Great day" is defined as, "An 24 hour period that allows for 2 or more runs or workouts that are accomplished without missing family activities."
Yesterday was a Great Day!
I got in two great runs with littlest and still made it to work and to egg coloring at my sister's in the evening!
The morning run of 3.5 miles included a Morton the Muskrat sighting. I was so happy to see him since he has been absent a lot after the recent flooding. He still evades the paparazzi but
I they won't give up.
Littlest missed the crazy paparazzi attempts to catch a decent photo of Morton.
After work littlest and I were out for a quick 6.5 loop. (Quick is always relative) But I was thrilled we got the miles in before the egg coloring tradition at my sisters.
Does your family have any Easter traditions?
Today we had new "VA" house paperwork to get done in the morning so my plans to slip out early for a longish run had to wait. When I finally got out the door with my wonderful hubbs watching middle one and littlest!!! (Thanks hubbs!) I had to settle to 9.5 miles (1:16) under a very hot sun. Even though I have a fuel belt and various sizes of Nathan handhelds, I neglected to grab one. Can we say too eager?
Regretted that after the first 2 miles. Luckily I did have some Chomps which at least kept my mouth from getting too dry. I was sweated wet and my visor was covered with salt. Hopefully the weather will ease into there higher temps a little more slowly than it has done for this holiday weekend. I need time to adjust.
I thought the kiddos were happy to have we finish and be home because they ran out to greet me. Wrong! Littlest just kept running. Maybe he thought it was his turn to put in some miles.
He had some really nice form going on!
Enjoy your Easter Holiday!
Whether you observe the religious holiday or not take time to be apprecative of all the wonderful aspects of your life. Try to see if the issues you thought were "negative" simply needed to be viewed differently to help turn them into an opportunity to be positive.
