Back from my blogging hiatus

My last blog post was 3 days before I started my new job. 3 days before my world as I knew it would turn into total chaos. 12 hours days. Long commutes. Inundated. Missing my family. Missing “normal” life. Missing…balance.

Then I took off for SF got to see my BFFL.

And  while I was there I ran this race

It was awesome. It was the first time I ran with a pace group and talked to people for the entire 1:40.

And then the kids started school and we had to try to find “balance” again. It’s been hectic. We still haven’t totally figured out our schedule but we’re getting there.

Just a few days after school started my BFFs (and their families) came to the rescue and we had a super fun weekend together. Best friends are like angels. Without wings. They restore balance with lots of love and much needed laughter!

And I ran a few more races

And had fun doing them.

But since then it’s been all business

Long Beach is in 1 1/2 weeks. It’s my brother’s first marathon. And we’re running it together.

That’s right.

Look out world. There is going to be a whole lot of sexy on the race course.

And then there will be some downtime. Yoga has been back in full force. I need it. I have 2 big races coming up in April.

Boston is my A race.  I still can’t believe I’m in. I’M IN! Big Sur is my be one with nature race. I cannot freaking wait.

I’m going to need lots of mental and physical strength. It’s going to be tough. There will be lots of ups and downs and, therefore, lots of blog talk. That’s right. I’m back people. Lots of rad stuff is in store. Hope you’re ready.

    Glad you’re back, I’ve missed you! I’ve actually been thinking about you quite a bit, as my father-in-law has had a recurrence of his kidney cancer (can’t remember where we left off, or if I told you that). He’s in treatment every week with the hopes of stopping the growth of the tumors and buying him more time. My faith is strong and my heart is sad…on so many levels. I know you understand. Anyway, good to see your smiling face and that you’ve been rocking those races! Good luck on the marathon with your brother! So fun!

  7. You are so hard core! I’m doing the Las Vegas Marathon in November and then CIM three weeks later and don’t know how I’m going to survive that. I can’t believe you’re doing two marathons in 6 days. I bow down!
