Beach day

I spent a large past of today at the beach with this little guy and Isabella. We went bird watching. My little boy loves looking at birds on the beach so I hold his little arms so he can pretend walk and of we go.

Then when he sees one he lifts his little arm and I think he is mimicking there wings..Its the cutest thing ever. One thing about having a little person in your life again is it helps you slow down .

everything is new to him and I love seeing what he sees. 

I am not sure the temperature of the water but its not cold . Its ok. The beach was full of surfers and swimmers and kids. Its always nice to people watch when there is so much going on.

Little baby feet are the best ever.. Cute and chubby and cute.

See you soon and I hope you have a chance to get outside..

Its a wrap

Sunday Run day
I am happy that the week this week is all done and it was not all easy miles.  Training for a 50 miler is harder than I thought. I don't really know if I thought about how hard it would be. Once I get started its good but its always those first 3 miles I feel slow and sluggish. I was supposed to run 50 miles but I ran 46 and that is fine with me. I thought about how much I love my children on my run today and how lucky I feel to have them all in my house right now. It is crazy how you get to that point in your life where you rather be home playing a board game or watching a movie with your family than any where else doing anything else. I have incorporated movie night at our house. As my kids got older we stopped watching TV together . I was never a TV person but my kids like some shows so I learn to like them too. 

Yesterday we all hung out and watched a movie no I phones no computers . Just the big TV and us. We all ended up on the floor hanging out. I felt tired from the 20 miles I ran earlier but many times I feel like running helps me stop and really see whats important . The being tired is almost a good thing (sometimes) because I just watch this miracle of little people I made hanging out and I am in awe. I love there voices and the fighting and the singing. Now that Jack is a part of our life I love his little high pitched voice making sounds because he wants to talk too…Our life is short it does not last forever so I feel like doing something everyday with them is so important. That something  is often  hanging out all together on the floor reading ..
I read this awesome quote by the awesome Kara Goucher.
This is how I feel about running today.
That's the thing about running your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is.

3 hours later

How are you going to reward yourself after this week ? 

This is how I reward myself for making all my kids camps on time. Making dinner 5 night in a row and having a clean house. 

This morning running on the coast was nice. The weather was perfect running weather ..Very little sun. I did not feel great but I felt good. The last three miles I played the let me just make it to that corner game.  You know the head game that goes like this.. I just need to run to that tree and I will almost be done game. It made it more interesting  and 30 minutes later I was done…
I hope you got your run in this morning ? DO you get tired of running in the same spot ? I don't I like the repletion .
Happy Miles..

Early Morning Run

I got out the door by 6 am..Did I hear a small cheer..
Well Thank You:)
 I feel very proud myself. The best part was how quite it is outside. I also love morning weather . God created it for runners. I saw a couple walkers but no other runners. I listened to Dave of course and took my time. I was not in a hurry I was having my time with the road.
 Day 1 done.
 I got my run on super early no excuses.
Wish me luck I have a 30 mile weekend ahead of me. One thing is for sure I will be going to bed early..Have a wonderful weekend and may all your miles be heavenly.
