So it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on my blog. It seems like I find myself having less and less time writing on here. I’ve contemplated giving it up since I can’t dedicate the kind of time I would like to it. But then I figured I’m the only one putting that type of pressure on myself. The truth is this place is supposed to be my place where I can write about running, my family, my home, and other life happenings. There’s no requirement that I post something every day, week, or even month. It just requires me to come here when I want and write about how I feel. So I apologize if the posts are a little more spread out, it really is a reflection of the season of life me and my family are currently experiencing where we’re on the go most of time. So I don’t want to give this up because it gives me joy and my ultimate hope is that it gives you joy and that you find something in these posts that you can relate to, or that makes you feel better, inspires you, or just something you simply enjoy reading. I hope I’ve inspired a few of you to take up running! I do think the blog needs a face-lift though. I’ve had it this way since I started it in 2013…yes it has been that long! So I am hoping to get some new pictures taken and spruce this little space up some! Also, I’ve had technical issues with my subscriber list so I will be sending a resubscribe request out when I get to that point. So I am hopeful you will continue to follow!
Aside from the blog stuff, I have been busy running. My running partner is injured though so I’ve been squeezing runs in when I can, which usually means after work and on the weekends. I used to always run after work but I must say after a few years of doing the early morning thing, I find myself so missing that feeling of just having it all done before your day starts. Getting up and out the door is hard but man there is something so freeing when it is over! So marathon training is set to begin this month, next week to be exact! I’m not sure how that will go with the injury but my fingers are crossed that we can get started on time.
The longest distance I’ve done is 11 miles but more consistently it has been 7-8 miles. My April mileage was only in the high 70’s which is pretty low. Last April it was somewhere in the high 100’s. Oh well I can’t compare, circumstances change.
I’ve been keeping up with the shorter runs with pretty views and strength training though!
Other life happenings- we had muffins with mom at the boys school.
We finally caught some fish in the pond.
We did the take your kid to work day!
And we came out to find this guy bothering our dog the other morning.
Other than that we’re knee deep into the baseball season.
Opening Day was a rain out this year but the games got under way the following week and well, here we are.
I am trying to stay on top of meals and having dinner ready to go but I get home later with my current job so we are often eating after ball and that is definitely not a habit I support! So any suggestions are appreciated.
How do you handle dinner on those busy nights and what are your go to recipes?
So life is busy and the blog posts are a little bit more spread out, but they will still happen. I went to a prayer breakfast last week where the pastor talked about doing all things with joy…even the things you don’t want to do like go to work. I really listened to what he was saying and it is actually a hard thing to follow but I am trying my best to do all things in joy…including running and writing this blog. Have a good week!
