First, Jenn's Adventures turned me onto this....Linky Followers. I am going to give it a try and see if you guys like it as a means to follow me versus all the other routes you are hearing about once Google Friend Connect isn't with us anymore. I am still determining how I best want to follow the blogs I love to read and am welcome to hear what platforms you are loving!
Second, I added a new page on my blog with some ways to follow and stay connected. This topic is going around and around so I'm not going to formally dedicate a whole post to a discussion we are all hearing. But it is there if you want it.....Connect with Me.
Now onto some running news.....in a roundabout way.
If you have ever helped host a large event or festival day, you know how draining it is. Physically and emotionally. And yes, it has taken its toll on me with a cold I thought I was over coming back. But in all reality, it was to be expected with the limited amount of sleep I was getting. And I am still stoked that I have been able to continue to run each day....even on THE DAY....Saturday.
4:00 am to get my one mile run in for the day. After a shower and getting ready, I started making breakfast -- my part of the exchange for a friend being the designated driver. She drove, I made breakfast croissants with egg, mushroom, cheese, tomato, and a touch of sausage. We were going to need the energy to get through the day. I was out of the house by 5:00 am.
My day was so hectic that I only had a moment to see what the entertainment was doing...honestly, just long enough to take the picture. I had to spare a few moments for darling daughter to play as I conned dear hubby to flip burgers for hours at end since we were short on volunteers. I never really got to "play" at the awesome regatta as I had way too much to do. And amazingly enough, I was home by 10:00 pm. I was lucky.
And somehow I managed to pull myself out of bed on Sunday to run even though my body felt like I ran a marathon the day before.
Today I am grateful for:
- Supportive people
- The ability to apologize when I am wrong
- Perseverance when others say I should stop
- A wonderful Mommy-Daughter day yesterday
