Yesterday was a great day!
Don't you just love it when you end a day feeling as though you accomplished what you set out to get done and didn't go crazy in the process?!
After a very busy day at work I picked up the kids for a few doctor appointments which would have normally wrecked my evening routine however, Army Son was waiting at the door when we got home
maybe because I brought him supper from Panera Bread
to help get unloaded and offered to entertain the little kiddos while I squeezed in a run amoungst the threatening thunder storms rain drops.  I jumped at the chance to get outside even though it would have to be a shorter run and was out the door in less than five minutes. 
Right from the start I was sailing along effortlessly.  No kidding!  I felt like my form was spot on.  At barely 30 miles through Wednesday evening, I assume that the step back week was working it's magic.  It was nice to clear my head after a hectic stressfull day and reflect on life.

This morning I didn't go for my a.m. run instead I chose to spend a little extra time with my kiddos before work and be able to get ready without rushing around.  I must say that I look great today.  Maybe it was that amazing run last night and the hopes of another just like it tonight.  Maybe it was the extra time getting ready.  Or maybe it the new accessories I'm sporting today.
That's a letter C under that bandage. 
This time it only has three other friends, A, B, and D. 
They are accessories I could have done without.

Did you remember your sun screen today?
I'm off to put on mine.


  1. I didn't, but the day is grey and dreary.


  2. Thanks for the sunscreen reminder, and I'm glad you are having things looked after!

    Glad you were able to squeeze in that run - sounds like it was a great one.

  3. I've got to buy some new sunscreen, thanks for the reminder : )

  4. Great reminder, especially at this time of the year when we aren't necessarily used to wearing it all the time. Been there with the mole removal!

  5. Yikes! I hope all is okay! Sunscreen for the day...check!
    Glad you got a great run in!

  6. I had a spot removed from the SAME place a few years ago! I wear SPF 80- I know people think that over 30 spf means nothing but I won't chance it.

    BTW- I love any post that begins with "Today was a great day!"

  7. Great reminder about sunscreen - although it is overcast today - and although I know you should still wear sunsreen, unless I am out for longer periods, I don't usually bother when the sun isn't shining.

    Hoping that this was a single episode and just being careful.

    Take care!

  8. No sunscreen today here, it's the one of the 3 times/year it's raining!!

    How awesome to have army son home...and to babysit is a huge bonus!!

  9. I keep a bottle of sunscreen with my running clothes so I put it on the same time I get ready. No excuses for me.

  10. I love when days end up happy and with a feeling of accomplishment. That's so fun!

  11. Army Son is so thoughtful. Helping to unpack the car and look after his siblings cause he knows how much you need to run? Priceless.

  12. body glide makes a sunscreen stick...looks like the usual body glide but has an orange label (which is how I ended up buying it accidently) but it stays with my running stuff so I remember to put it on! So very important, even when it doesn't seem like the sun is bright!
