An Eventful Week!

Playing catch-up…

Last Saturday morning I got up for an early morning run and then made a trip to Basha’s to get the boys some surprise donuts. Guess what?

Later that morning Gabe had a soccer game. It was windy, but beautiful. Unfortunately United lost the game. Also unfortunate was the fact that my phone fell into the toilet at the game (thank GOD it was a toilet and not a porta-potty). My phone was FINE! What?!?!?

Sunday morning I went for a 12 mile 13.1 mile long run (damn math that I can’t do at the seven mile mark to get home at the planned mileage!). We got ready for church and promptly locked the keys in the car when we got there…

It was a long weekend!

This week was eventful, too! In no particular order…

I did some grading at a local coffee shop ran in the sunshine,

Gabe busted through a pair of shoes…

I shared breakfast with a dear friend,

I went to my first Team Run Flagstaff Board Meeting and also went to see a very touching movie about Coach Jim (who, sadly, passed away a little almost two weeks ago from ALS). If you have the opportunity to see this documentary you should take advantage of it…

and Andrew did lots of rehearsing for the opening of Fiddler on the Roof, Jr….

Tomorrow night is Opening Night! Andrew will play the role of a Villager at 2 PM and then will play the role of Tevye at 7:00 PM. We are so excited!

What have you been up to? 

Have you ever locked your keys in the car? Dropped your phone in the toilet?

Do you “do the math” on a run or do you always have your route totally planned out ahead of time?

 

Friday Tidbits… Cool, Cute, Ridiculous, and Exciting

Isn’t this cool?

It’s just a teaser… but it is such a great one. I love that you see the trails (Buffalo Park!), the indoor track, the outdoor track at NAU, the coaches, the kids, the Pros and the rest of us all coming together to make our dynamic group.

Isn’t this cute?

The cats seem to be waiting to play with Gabe…

Isn’t this ridiculous?

Is there ANY useful, real, or interesting math on this chalkboard in the latest Women’s Health magazine? Coworkers… please tell me if there is anything good I’m missing. The agility training that the article says will help memory and cognition is obviously not working for her. Who makes decisions about photos like this and decides they’re keepers? P.S. If I’m wrong and there is something good here, I will be willing to admit it!

Isn’t this exciting?

Theatrikos

The bold times are when Andrew plays Tevye. We are really excited about the show!

Mini running-update: I was tired and hot during my 6-mile run today, but I was glad I went.

I am almost always glad I went!

I’d like to send a shout out to my friend Angie back in Michigan. She is running her first Half Marathon tomorrow! You’ve got this, Angie!!

Tell me something cool, ridiculous, cute, or exciting happening in your world!

Be a little bit proud of them, too… (my most favorite part starts at about a minute and a half into the video)

You could do all of those things…
