I’ve Had Better

Posted on: July 2, 2011

More on that in a bit


Well hello July.  Sneaky little thing snuck right up on me.  That also means we are over half way to Christmas 🙂 

So, I got this idea from Julie’s page and thought I’d include it:  June Highlights!!

I started zee ole blog

Celebrated Father’s Day

Got a Bondi Band

Since I just started this blog, those are the highlights right now 😉

As I’m looking at my calendar, the weekends this month are pretty jam-packed.  Including my first official race next weekend!!  I’m nervous/excited/ frightened.


Yesterday was like any other Friday.  Had pizza for dinner (I LOVE pizza Fridays), and then it happened again….

Dang you Rollo McFlurry. You are so GGGGOOOODDDD

I can’t help myself when it comes to these things.  I’m also bummed that they are only a limited edition thing.  That’s a sin.

Before I knew it, that thing was gone


Now, onto my post title.  Today I woke up with every intention to do a 10 mile run.  I’ve been getting a cramp at mile 6ish on my long runs, so I wanted to try running on a completely empty stomach.  Let me sum that up for you in one simple word: FAIL

I made it 5.75 miles before I said “forget it.”  Ya live and learn right?  As soon as I was done I needed something in this empty stomach and fast

I know people have different opinions on Gatorade, but I love the stuff!!  It was exactly what I needed after that not so good run.  I’m pretty bummed, but there’s always next time.


Well, we broke a record here in the mitten state: 98 degrees today.  This is what Diesel thinks of that

“Mom, how much longer until that cold white stuff comes back?”

In honor of the nasty heat today, I’m totally rockin’ a french braid.  I totally feel like an 8-year-old too, but I love french braids.  My hair is finally long enough again to do them.

Well, I’m going to try to not melt
Question of the night:  Is 26 too old for a french braid?  🙂  You can be totally honest, I can take it!!
