These are the days and Race Decisions

I had such a great run yesterday morning.. 7.18 miles in 58:37 or roughly 8:09 minute miles and it just felt good.  I think my body is ready for another training cycle.  My very annoying summer cold is nearly gone, finally.  Although I did stub my right middle toe in the middle of the night Sunday night and now it is very sore and purple.  OUCH!  and then I set a coffee table on it while rearranging the living room.  I nearly peed my pants. 

I gave it a rest from running today against my better judgment.  I really wanted to run.

My sis in law and I also took the kids on a hike yesterday.  I love that the kids love hiking on the ranch so much and love playing in all the areas I did growing up.
They are also having a blast working on their fort below my parents house.  We found some big orange mineral tubs and they had to have them for tables in the group room in the fort.

My blog is taking a back seat this summer and I am planning on spending more time with the kids out hiking and exploring.  I still plan to blog when I have time, but it isn't going to be a focus this summer.  The kids are growing up fast and we have things to do.

That said, I am currently trying to decide if my toe will let me race this weekend!  I was planning on a 10k, now I may downgrade to the 5k, or not at all.  Boo.  It feels like forever since I have done a race!  A month!

I also found a really great run called the Montana Cattlewomen's Ranch Run.  It is a relay for 5, each with 5 miles to run.  The snag for me is that the Montana Half marathon is the next day, and I really wanted to run that one this year. Maybe I can swing both.  The Ranch Run would be a super great one for me and my Team Beef pals!

How is your summer going?


  1. That Cattle Women's Run looks AWESOME! We are going to be in Washington DC that week and I don't think I'll be back in time for that race. :( Maybe next year, though!

  2. Good move on the blog--I intend to do the same. I am actually struggling with whether or not blogging is what I should be doing when I consider my son will only be home for another four years.

    I hope the toe improves quickly and you get to race!

  3. Summer is in full swing! Enjoy!

  4. Have a fun summer! This time with the kids is so short.

  5. I hope you and the kids and pets have a fabulous Summer!


Because I love hearing from you all!
