Finally Friday! The week has been so busy I sat down to blog a couple of times, but busy kept happening! I usually only work 3 days a week so the last couple weeks of 4 days a week has been a little hard on my house and me, but not horrible.
I am still getting in some good runs at least three days a week and some HIIT workouts. My kids made out easy this week and only had school two days. Monday they skipped school to help ship calves and Thursday and Friday were no school days for everyone. The weather has been amazing.
I love seeing my kids big enough and interested in helping work cows. My son in particular really wants to help and insists on wanting to know what he can do to help. Both kids were on their horses all day yesterday first helping gather cows and then helping in the corrals push cows in the corral to get preg tested. I had to work yesterday but my aunt sent me this great photo and a glowing report of how great they were being.

By the time I got off work they were taking the pregnant cows to another pasture
I love that feeling of doing something right, these are some great kids and I am so proud of them. Don't' worry they weren't all work and no play, by the time I got off work and all their work was done I found the boys playing war and practicing their camo
I am running a half marathon on Sunday. It is on a course that I did my very first half marathon on four years ago. Kind of hard to believe this will only be half number 8! The course has rolling hills and is an out and back. I haven't been training super hard so I am going into this one with the idea of not killing myself in the first half on the rolling hills like I did the first time I ran it and to run about an 8 minute mile.
It starts at 10 in the morning which feels a little off to me, and the weather is supposed to be warm with high of 72 so I wish they were starting a little earlier, but whatever. This isn't like a big goal race or anything. Fun is the goal.
