But anyway we have covered all that before we all know I have a lot of heart in the game, but still need practice.
It has been awhile since I have written on the blog. I am sorry my six loyal followers please forgive me. The fact that my last blog post was Jacob's last day of school for the summer is not lost on me, I see the connection. In an effort to catch you all up here is a long, awesome, rundown of what you have missed.
Chris and I ran our first half-marathon. The run was interesting. We arrived too late to warm up and I had to use the bathroom. The line was so long the race started while I was in line. I decided to "screw it", although I am sure I said something else more egregious in my head, and took off for the race. There were bathrooms along the route and I stopped off at the first one I saw. Chris and I were separated and he was way ahead of me until about mile 10 where I caught up to him. I lost him for awhile because he had to go find a bathroom too. That is where the wall hit. It was fun up until mile 10. The last three miles I struggled but made it to the finish without walking and within 2:14. It was a cool achievement. We ran a couple more 5K's this summer and plan to focus on those for awhile.
After the marathon
The summer was fast and furiously hot, but we managed to have fun. I am experiencing writers block so I will just go down a quick run through via pictures.
and I decorated Grady's door
He cried because of the singing and the candle.
or as I like to call this picture
Ghetto Water Slide on a random hot day.
Stop judging you know you are jealous.
Are you thinking that this highlight reel is boring? Me too. I have a couple of posts up my sleeve that will be much better. Promises. I needed to break back into writing so consider this post just a little practice of what is yet to come.
