Three Things Thursday

1. My baby girl turned 8 yesterday. Luckily it also coincided with my day off from work so my husband and I met up at the school and had lunch with the birthday girl, and my son, and her friends and two of my nephews.  We are apparently still cool. As we were leaving the school I wondered out loud to my husband just how much longer our little cowgirl would want us to come to lunch and walk down the hall holding both of our hands.  Lunch was burritos and they were actually way better than I remember them being when I went to school there. I didn't take a single picture.  Blogger fail.  How about the birthday girl through the years.. this isn't every year but close!

2.  I am loving Momentum Jewelry wrap bracelets right now.  Okay I only have two, but I think I need more.

3. The Run to the Pub half marathon is now 36 days and 22 hours away.  I feel good about running the distance I just don't feel good about getting it done fast.  and I have decided I am okay with that.  It is hard to get speed work done in the winter when the roads are either muddy, snowy or ice packed.

Run to the Pub is a pretty awesome race, they have great race shirts, you get a pint glass and free beer at the finish and they give away four trips to Dublin. In fact it made Runner's World's list of top half marathons as number 2 in the US.  I don't know what year they made the list, but pretty awesome!


  1. All the best to the birthday girl! In my experience, 10 is the age where they don't want you around anymore, which is where my youngest is. She told me not to come to her school book fair but just send money. Joy. That half sounds awesome!

  2. I love my momentum bracelets. I also have 2--the one I've been wearing the most says "just breathe" which is great advice for this very stressed out mama/NP!

    Happy Birthday to your sweet girl!

  3. Four trips to Dublin?! I'd run it just for that! :)

  4. Happy birthday to your cowgirl! I've been reading your blog for 3+ years and she's really growing up.

    I have that quote on my phone case.

  5. I would love to do Run to the Pub! It always falls when we're calving, and I live really far away so it's hard to get down there. Someday though.... :) You will do great, I'm sure!

  6. Happy Birthday to the Little Cowgirl! Hopefully she never wants you and her dad to stop holding her hand.

  7. Happy Birthday to you cowgirl! How fun that you got to go have lunch with her! That bracelet is awesome! I am sure you are going to rock the upcoming race; how fun would it be to win a trip!

  8. Happy birthday to your kiddo!

    It would be awesome to win one of the trips to Dublin! Training on snow and ice does not make for safe speedwork. But you might gain some speed coming into the race if the surfaces happen to be clear that day?


Because I love hearing from you all!
