While we have most certainly not been hit with weather the way some of the Midwest has been (those people are in my thoughts!) we have had our fair share of thunderstorms in our part these past few days.
The storms showed up Tuesday evening and yesterday morning. Which meant no running for me. And again this morning when my alarm went off it was still DARK out. Which was a surefire sign of rain to me. It actually wasn't raining but ah well. I didn't get to sleep in. One sick child woke up at 6AM and the other at 6:45AM (I was already up when that guy woke up). We have been hit with the dreaded Summer Cold in my house. Hubs, me AND the Guys are all battling it in various stages.
Apparently my cure for a summer cold is to eat my weight in chicken nuggets. Not a brilliant move on my end.
I have run once this week. And the storms have prevented me from walking on my lunch so my mileage this week is a lousy 3.5 miles. I am disappointed in myself.
Instead of focusing on that I would like to take a minute and give mad props to two of my blogging friends.
Meg and Liz have both been running in this blasted heat! We are all first time summer runners so I think the heat has taken us all by surprise (I know it has for me!). Both of them are kicking butt at getting out there and getting moving! When I read their posts I wish I was close enough to A. High five them and B. Run with them because we have similar paces and I think it would be a blast! So go Meg and Liz! You ladies are awesome and I am in awe of your running dedication! WOO HOO to you!
