Wait for me...


Wow, summer is flying by and I am one busy mama! Gearing up for a small vacay and time with my older sister who is in town from Florida. Hoping to all meet up on the Oregon Coast for a few days. I have a hard time embracing the coast, as I a Floridian at heart when it comes to beaches. I am reluctantly throwing in a pair or pants and jackets for the kids. When I go to the beach...I am typically searching for sun! I am not sure if the Coast will be bring me sun, but I am hoping it will bring me salt air, sand in my toes and a breath of fresh air!

I will be mentally seeing my NUUN team cross the finish line in Seaside after our 200 mile journey, taking some pics and getting pumped for up Hood to Coast! YIKES!


I did get a long run in yesterday of 8 miles. It was great weather and a reminder how out of shape I am! Geesh, I have work to do! Looking forward to getting home and incorporate NUUN into my training. With this heat I am going to need it! Hoping to get a few short runs in and maybe a double next week. At the tail end of our vacay my hubby and I will run the WARRIOR DASH!! Just think mud, obstacles and a viking hat!! Pics to follow of course.

Again THANKS to the peeps that are still lurking or hanging around! So sorry my posts have been few and far between. Upon my return I have some exciting things to share..small giveaway winner, shirt review and more!!

So...wait for me and while you do, be sure to make time for your loved ones and run happy!!

Wishing you some wonderful weather while you are on the Coast! Make sure Seaside is schooled in how to properly and lovingly greet us at the finish! Hope you all have a great time :)
