I love this day because… it’s my baby nephew James’ 2nd birthday! I can’t believe it’s been two whole YEARS since my sister and BIL became parents, and this little man came into our lives. I’m an aunt because of you, James, because of you!
I can’t believe how big he’s gotten and how cool of a kid he’s become. He’s all grown up and huge, running all over the place, and callin’ me “aunt Nani” over Skype, and well on his way to becoming an NBA player.
I love this day because… in exactly one week, I’ll be in Michigan with Weez and his family! At his best friend’s wedding! I’m so excited for their wedding, I’m so excited to spend quality time with Weez’s family. I can’t WAIT.
I love this day because… in exactly one month, I’ll be toeing the line of The Boston Marathon. Then hopefully less than 3.5 hrs later, crossing this one:
I love this day because… my legs are proudly sore from yesterday’s fartlek workout with this speedy chica. We planned to hit the track, but since it was occupied, we switched it up:
1 mile warmup; then 6 mins hard, 5 mins hard, 4, 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, 1 with 1-2 mins jog between each tempo effort; 1 mile cool down. Totally 8 miles and lots of gradual hills.
Running with Barb is awesome for multiple reasons, but one is that she is such an inspiring ‘coach’ and pushed me to run harder than I would have by myself. Thanks, girl!
What’s something you’ve been lovin’ lately?
