Photo dump and a small rant.

Happy Friday, Friends!!

  I thought today I would just dump some of my photos from the week on you!

Let's start with a couple of my runs this week. I did 3 miles at the track on Wednesday and 4 last night. Saturday will be my 15 mile long run. Am I crazy because I SO look forward to my long runs? I think it's just something only runners can understand!
Everyone takes pictures of themselves after their runs, no?

The very kind Mr Barton is helping me with speedwork. He's an awesome running coach and his overflowing medal rack puts my 4 little medals to shame! But we all start somewhere. 
 I'm going to try my best to be a good student...but he has been warned!
My notes

 I was so excited about winning this awesome giveaway from the lovely Kim, at Barking Mad About Running. My 13 year old stepson asked me to save the 26.2 sticker for him, because he wants to put it on his car someday. That's my boy!!

Rare photo of me in non-workout clothes!

And now, because I know you want to see the latest photo of my precious nephew! 
Oh, my heart! It's just not fair that he's 8 hours away!
In other unrelated the heck can Mrs. Weiner stay with him?? I'm all about forgiveness and second chances, but after this many times, and she just keeps standing by him and smiling and taking this abuse...COME ON!! I think it's appalling. She doesn't deserve that and I think it's sad that she thinks she does. 
Rant over.

What are your plans for the weekend?



  1. I love long runs, and I definitely look forward to them! Another weird runner here, I guess.

    I'm visiting my boyfriend's parents this weekend. Should be fun times! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I'll be long running this weekend too! Up at the beach where the weekend looks to bring in some cooler swimming in my near future.

    And no idea how Mrs. Danger puts up with Carlos' act...

    1. Hope your long run went well! Ugh, I don't know how she does either. What a dirtbag.

  3. When I was running I always looked forward to my long runs on Saturday mornings!! Now I'm just looking forward to the day I can start running pain free again!! :-P
    BTW, you're gorgeous! AND your nephew is precious! :)

    1. Oh girl, I hope that day comes quickly for you!! Thank you, darlin!!

  4. I am looking forward to some chill time this weekend...and hopefully a few runs!

  5. I love long runs too! In one of the pictures on the track, your hair looks lighter. :) Is it different. You look beautiful in all your photos and I wouldn't forgive Weenie either.;)


    1. Yes, it's different, I got highlights. :) Thank you, Karen!

  6. I'm dropping the kiddos off at Granna and Papaws and Michael and I are going for a 5 mile run then we are off to the movie tavern (after a shower of course). Then to target to get Joseph's school supplies! Gotta devote next week to getting prepared to move my horse back up.

    1. Hope you had a great weekend! I know you killed that 5 miles. Woohoo!!

  7. I am working on loving my long runs. At this point I love my runs a whole lot more when I'm finished with them. =)

  8. I really love this post I will visit again to read your post in a very short time and I hope you will make more posts like this.
