Never Miss A … Tuesday?

You know that awkward moment when you’re getting ready to take that post-workout picture for the blog and someone yells out “NEVER MISS A MONDAY!” … on a Tuesday?

9.8 tuesday

Just in case that didn’t happen to you yesterday morning, I will let you know it was hilarious 😉 See what one day off does to our brains?!  I don’t know how my kids remember anything over their 2 week breaks during the school year, let alone the entire summer!  A three-day weekend and my brain is on a permanent vacation!

It was a busy but relaxing long weekend around here.  Our Thursday morning crew looking much better than we felt after a miserable 3 {shoulda been 4} miler.

9.3 Thurs

Thursday night marked the Inaugural Java & Sole Fantasy Football Live Draft!  I love football, football season, the weeks leading up to football season … do you see where I’m going with this?!?  Last year, I recruited Summer and Nettie to join our church fantasy football league and we had a blast, even though I somehow managed to finish dead last!  This year, we rallied the girls and formed our own league (still through our church – this is an outreach event after all!)

Put 10 Runner Girls in a Fantasy Football league (only, maybe, 5 know what they’re doing) and hilarity will ensure 🙂



Friday morning rolls around and somehow I get talked into “just” meeting for coffee {we all know the coffee time is where it’s at … that’s the only reason I run} and SURPRISE, SURPRISE  the Pumpkin Spice Latte  has it’s own “backstage pass” for people who spend a ridiculous amount of time in one place.

9.4 PSL

And this … a friend shared this with me.  I laughed, out loud, for a solid 5 minutes before I was a little worried about how frighteningly accurate it is!


Saturday morning {generally} means LONG RUN here … and this week we were back on track!  Summer routed us a giant 10 mile loop through town.

At around mile 8 of 10, Melissa achieved a major personal running goal: 500 miles for the year!  On February 7 she set this goal, in hopes of achieving it by December 31.  She blew that timeline out of the water by finishing with the morning at 503.

Post run DONUTS!!  A happy little Saturday 🙂

I very much enjoyed being unplugged for a few days over our long weekend!

How did you spend your unofficial final days of summer? Summer and I took our daughters’ with us log a few community service hours from our Bible Study this past winter then my family and I headed to my in-laws for my nephew’s 14th birthday party.  I maintain that it is not my kids’ birthdays, or even my own birthday that makes me feel old – it’s his 🙂  The oldest of my in-laws’ grandchildren and the most adorable ring bearer anywhere or ever on my wedding day … Happy 14th Birthday Bray!!

    My PSL tally so far this season is one. I’m holding back. Looks like all kind of fun was had! We took a trip to Lake Geneva, which was awesome!

      I’ll admit to only having one “official” PSL, but I really love to put a couple pumps of the PS syrup in my tall blond roast every morning – with a little cream and some nutmeg on top, it’s my own little creation 🙂 Lake Geneva sounds fun! Perfect weather for it!
