another week

Well, in true follow-up to my last post, I still haven't been to the gym, because life is busy and crazy and full.  I've hardly blogged this week!

I have been getting some runs in though.  A few on the road and a few on the old treadmill.  You can click that Daily Mile widget on the right to check them out.  I haven't logged today's yet.

My week kind of runs by Wednesdays.  Wednesdays are my Fridays, since I work Sunday-Wednesday.  Sometimes it's easier for me to run on my workdays, because I have to be up early anyways, so might as well get up and run.  Sometimes it's easier on my days off because I may be able to run other than the morning, or even if I run in the morning--I can take my time getting ready for the day after that.

Every week is different.  Welcome to my life!  I kind of wish it weren't that way.  I like routine and predictability.  But as a working mom of three young kids, you just never know.

Tanget: At what ages do I not have young kids?  I think with a 1st grader, almost 4-yr old and 2yr-old, it's going to be a couple more years.  Maybe when #2 enters school.

I'm still thinking about doing a full marathon this year.  Although I was bummed to find out there aren't many at the end of the summer.  I guess it's too hot for racing.  But summer is good for training when you have kids out of school and more flexibility to your schedule.

There is a marathon in San Francisco though, the last day of July.  Which maybe I could pull off.  And if I won this free entry to it--it would certainly be worth going for!  In efforts to pay off debt, I have been debating race entry fees.  There is a local trail run I was considering, but I'd rather put the $35 to debt and do my own free trail run.  So winning would be great! 

Maybe that's my new goal--winning entries..  I've actually won several things via blog giveaways.  Perhaps I need to stalk running blogs for race entry giveaways.  I've seen a few here and there.

Any tips on finding blogs giving away race entries?

The Rock and Roll Marathon is in June.  I just don't know if I can train like I want to by then.  

I think tomorrow is going to be a video day.  It's supposed to be still raining and that way I can sleep in a tiny bit and exercise while hanging with my little girls.

Happy Weekend to me!


  1. OH! I'm running the SF half this year! We are NOT planning on racing it, just running (by we I mean my running "wife" and I) and enjoying the moment in the city, stopping to take pictures as we cross the bridge etc. I will be 6 days off a Triathlon, so, ah, I'm 100% sure it won't be a speed effort.

  2. That sounds like a lot of fun! I need to run a race sometime instead of racing it...but I have the hardest time not racing, lol.
