Wish we could have captured a better picture.
I’m not sure what causes my legs to do this every so often. My two best guesses are 1) mileage is too high (which might be likely, I’ve been piling on the miles lately!), or 2) something is off with me physically/with medications, since this happened at the end of the week where I experienced a bipolar swing.
|The best finish hug 🙂|
One more thing to note: I was proud of myself for lining up at the start line and not judging my body against the other women there. That’s big for me, since I had dreaded showing my “mom body” a little bit the weeks before hand. Been there?
|I love that she is growing up watching mom and dad be active, participate in events, and race! I hope that she takes to racing herself one day (although will try my absolute hardest not to push it on her)!!
Did you grow up in an active/racing oriented family? I’m curious what your experience was like.

|It’s become a tradition to go to bingo on Friday nights when I visit. My dad babysits and I get to spend time with my mom & grandma. It’s a really great way to spend an evening talking, catching up, etc – which is why I go. If I win, it’s just an added bonus.
And win, I did! This is my THIRD time in a row winning. I am oddly very lucky with things like this. I’ll take it!
|Running and screeching in delight – she couldn’t wait to enter. I don’t blame her, I wouldn’t either!|
|Who wants to play with the doll house when there’s a tool box? Grandpa Pete (my dad) would be so proud :).
She also learned the word “tractor” while down at the farm. Hahaha, thanks dad!
|Baking me some chocolate chip cookies|
Saturday and Sunday we hung out with Grandpa & Grandma at the farm. We left around noon on Sunday, right before a crazy blizzard rolled into SW MN. Winds later that day were gusting to 40+ MPH!
|Love this picture 🙂|
We will have to get down to the farm more often; it was a lot of fun!
Things have been going really well! I’ve sustained 80+ mile weeks for the last 3 weeks, and although I’m running a little tired, I’ve still been able to put in some great efforts.
