A double yoke kind of day

Yeah I'm wearing the pink Nike top again. 
 I love it! and it's thumb holes.
Just when things seems to be stacked against my plans there are little rays of light.  With the super secret spy's insane work schedule I had been at my wits end trying to work out kid coverage for Stone Mill but now that all I have to do is a lot of driving
 oh and a fair amount of running
I have filled my time with making sure the kids and I are ready for what I hope will be a wonderful weekend for everyone.  I tried out a new pair of on regular Saucony trail shoes.  Thanks to all the great insights my readers shared with my on THIS post. 
I have a brand new pack that is ready to hang with me for 50 miles chafe free.  I'm hoping.  I've packed two or six potential race day outfits, kids clothes, toys and favorite snacks. 
With all that done what better way to set the stage for a great day than to bake cookies?!   

Take delight in the smallest of miracles
The simple act of cracking that egg reminded me that no matter how things seem on the surface - ordinary, average, predictable - things can always surprise you.


  1. I'm so excited for you, and so glad you managed to get all the details hashed out so you can move forward!

    I have never cracked a double yolk egg...

  2. Hooray! Hope you have a blast running on Saturday! See you at packet pickup.

  3. You will do great! I'll be thinking of you! Good luck!

  4. I'm glad it all worked out for you! Good luck this weekend!!!

  5. I hope you did well on SM50. I finished but slower than I wanted. I had knee issues the last 15 miles, that really slowed my running down to a crawl for quite a while. That last leg I pushed through the knees and finished strong.
