Be safe and...
We spent some time last week in the beautiful state of Florida in a condo on the beach. It always amazes me to see how much money there is along the beach front!!
As with every vacation I take, I ate WAY too much and once back, feel like a real slug.
Got a couple of nice runs in while I was there. But today is my last day of vacation and it's time to get serious again!
So can you believe it??? TWINS?? After my WILD 2007, I'm now in for another WILD ride in 2009. Let me recap...
Yea, all that in one year! So now, after a very boring 2008 ;-) I need to ramp up for 2009 when I have this going on...
Yes, that's right. My oldest daughter who got married in 2007 is now pregnant and is due June 6. So, I'll have a 2 year old and twins babies in March AND will be a grandfather in June!! (Head spinning)
So over the next week or so I will be reevaluating my work outs and eating habits AGAIN. I'm going to need all the energy I can get and I'm not built for that right now!
Wish me luck!!
On the running front, not a lot going on. Still getting out the door 4-5 times a week, but mostly leaving my enthusiasm at home. Not sure what's up with that, but I guess that will return soon enough.
I've been going to the track once a week for the past month for some interval work. It feels SO good AFTER I finish!!!
Just need to hang in another month for my trip to Chicago and more another long weekend of making myself happy!
I'm not too sure how old he should be before I break the news that not EVERY animal at the zoo is a "dog-dog", but who cares. There is nothing like helping my son discover new things. "Finest Kind"
The summer heat has begun hitting us here in Cincinnati, (not like my friends in Fla., but still hot) and it's made my lunch time runs more of a challenge. I seem to rotate between "I can't breath in this humidity" and "It feels good to sweat like this". No complaints yet.
Also have final plans to visit YANKEE STADIUM soon to see this "House That Ruth Built" before it is torn down next year.
Probably followed by a trip to Chicago!
Summer is shaping up nicely ;-)
I'm sure you are all wondering what you can get him too. So here's a little help:

I COMPLETELY fooled Santa again this year and had the most wonderful Christmas ever! Hope you all can say the same!
Now it's back to the old grindstone!
My foot is at about 90% now so I want to SLOWLY pick up some miles in January and make DARN sure to stick with my weight lifting! I'll keep you posted how that goes.
