The week that was

This week didn't start out great.  We had the whole whooping cough scare and the 2 days of quarantine that went with it. We also had the rough zoo trip.  But as I sit here, Sunday afternoon, it doesn't seem so bad.

A quick mommy thing, then I will get to how the running went.  Pnut had a rough few days at the beginning of the week.  She pulled herself together towards the end.  So much so, Brian and I agreed she had earned a reward.  We decided seeing a movie would be great.  We picked The Secret Life of Arriety.  It looks right up Pnut's alley.  We came up with this plan Thursday or Friday.  I immediately asked Brian if he wanted to take her.  I am usually the one who does this stuff.    I thought it would be nice for them to spend some quality time together.  I also knew the movie would be during Little Dude's nap time.  I would have a couple hours all to myself.  What could be better?  This morning I started to have second thoughts.  I had a little twinge of guilt.  I felt guilty for not wanting to take Pnut in the first place.  As they were getting ready to go, I wanted to be the one taking her.   I'm sure they are having a wonderful time and I will hear all about it when they get back.  Side note: LD's nap time interrupted with a bath because he found a tube of A and D ointment and he covered his face and hair with it. So much for mommy's quiet time.

On to the running.  Monday I was worried I would never get my miles in this week.  Turns out, I got all 25!!!  I'm so happy.  I had one rough run, the rest felt great.  I'm amazed how much I'm enjoying running.  This is the first season I actually like it.  I did it before because it's part of a triathlon.  I haven't been on my bike or in a pool in months and my race calendar only has one tri on it.  Maybe this is the season of running.   Because I'm enjoying the running so much, I'm thinking about signing up for my first marathon.  There is one, in Bellingham, in September.  Actually September 25th.  My anniversary is September 28th.  Not sure that's how Brian would like to celebrate 10 years of marriage.  The Seattle Marathon is November 25th.  Could be really cold and rainy, but closer to home.  We will see.

Next week I have 27 miles to run, with a long run of 10 miles.  I'm hoping to meet up with the running group in my neighborhood.  I tried this weekend, but it didn't work out.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.


  1. Hope you have a great week too��

  2. Great week of running! I love when I am able to hit my goal. Sounds like the movie night for daughter and daddy was a good idea and I wouldn't feel guilty, I believe baby girls need their daddy time :)

    1. Thanks, Kris. She had a wonderful time!
