1. I am off work next week! Going to be hitting up my mom's house for a pool party Saturday, then Cam and I are driving to Montreal and staying over there Sunday night, and then I am off to my friend's cottage for a week of nothing but beer and relaxation. I hope not to gain any weight by keeping up my running while I am there, but we shall see. I am excited for the fresh air! and maybe the beer too :)
2. I've been fixing up my TV table for the past week or so. It looks great, but I am waiting for it to cure and for better light to photograph it so you might have to wait another week or two to see! In the meantime, I have had the TV disconnected. However, last night I got bored so I set it up on the couch and plugged it in to watch a movie! Built-in DVD player for the win.
3. My 15km race is in only 3 weeks! Eep- how did that happen so fast? My training has been going great though. Getting out there at least 3 times a week, generally one tempo run for 5km or so, one 6-8km run, and one long run on the weekend. Last weekend I hit 13.8km and this weekend I plan to do 14km. I am going to keep it up while at the cottage and hopefully complete a full 15km on the long weekend. Then I will taper it down until my race! I have really been enjoying my runs though, and I am starting to wonder if next year a half marathon might be in the bag? HMM
|10K race this past May|
5. I don't usually get into the personal lives of my friends and family on this blog much, but I just had to share this photo! My mom is going through chemotherapy for breast cancer this summer (don't worry- she is doing fantastic and the chemo is more of a "make sure we get it all" kind of deal). My stepdad uploaded this photo to Facebook and oh my gosh- it is like looking 30 years into the future. People always have said we look alike, but with my hair loss it has been less noticeable- up until now!
Her and I are planning a fun photoshoot to commemorate being bald buddies this summer. I will share the photos later this summer!
Well, that is all the updates I have for now! I will have a couple posts up next week, but expect some silence from me this week. Internetting constantly is a total cottage faux pas.
