Hello friends! I hope you’re having an excellent weekend so far. I’ve been working to squeeze in miles for the last couple of weeks around what seems like nothing but BASEBALL, BASEBALL, BASEBALL! My son Charlie made his first all-star team and I really couldn’t be prouder of him. I’m assistant coaching and there is a ton of practice. A mom of one of his teammates said he bad the best attitude (always positive) and that made me prouder than anything he’s done on the field. 🙂
I’ve been starting to do more “quality” miles, where I’m kicking up the pace a bit. I’m starting to hate it less so that’s good, right? Twitter chose to have me run hill repeats the other day, so I STILL haven’t hit the track. I think I’ll do it Tuesday.
Quick sidenote: Star Spangled Ding Dongs are delicious! Stick them in the fridge and you won’t regret it. I have a thing for low budget snack cakes. No, my coworkers and I definitely didn’t do any snickering or make any jokes about the silly name.
So, about this plan stuff… My commitment to run the Grand Slam at the Runner’s World Festival and Half Marathon in October is fast approaching. What’s the Grand Slam you ask? It’s 26.2 miles worth of running in just 3 days! I’ll be running a trail run, a 5k race, a 10k race, and a half marathon in one wild weekend. I’m still not sure how to get ready for that much action. We’ll see what I can come up with in the next couple of weeks. I’m open to suggestions. 🙂
