I realized the other day that I hadn't posted in a week!

My half marathon training schedule has gotten a bit more intense.  I have to run, with the girls in the double jogger, 4.5 miles twice a week. That's killer. It takes me forever (try almost an hour, the fastest I've done so far is 54 minutes) and I'm soooo tired afterwards that I feed the girls their nighttime snack and go to bed!!

My last long weekend run was 7 miles last Sunday.  The week before I got a good sunrise picture.

If you notice I run on a sidewalk by a busy 6 lane highway.  I assume this is safer since most people in cars passing by me can't actually see me because the speed limit is 50mph.  The road closer to my house is 2 lanes, the sidewalk is closer to the road, the speed limit is 35mph and if I'm lucky at this time of morning I'll have 4 people drive past me.  Creepy!!

This weekend we're busy again.  We have a walk for breast cancer on Saturday morning.  It's a 3 mile walk but I believe that Josh and his friends from work are going to run it while I stay behind with the girls.  I can't run Saturday because my next long run is Sunday morning and it's 8 miles, I don't want to over do it.

Saturday evening we're going to Annika's first ever Halloween party at her dance school!  So excited to dress up the girls (even though Annabel is too young to participate in anything I want to dress her up) and have Josh with us since he works on Halloween.  There's a costume contest too, I'm excited to see Annika's costume on her all put together (she's Pippi Longstocking).

I can't believe that Annika's birthday party is a little over 2 weeks away!!  She's going to be 3!!  How did this happen so fast???  Her theme is "ballerinas" but since we're having an outdoor party again the decorations are minimal.  Her cake will have ballerinas on it though, can't want to get pictures of that!  This will be the first year that I make her cake.

  1. I can't believe she's going to be 3, either! Karina will be four at Christmas. That one's blowing my mind big time. I wish it would just slow down a little! I miss my baby-baby!
