Seriously? SO CUTE! Christian had fallen asleep and I look down to see his big sister holding his hand. I melted! I always think of the many ways she could be torturing him as I go on long runs, but I was pleasantly surprised today. Maybe a fluke, maybe she is the sweet girl my imagination makes her out to be! :)
My cute boy! Ava didn't let him sleep that long...she needed a play mate!
So let me start my next thought with a story...
I thought I was doing so well in my 1/2 marathon training when this past Saturday my friend Alie and I ran 7 miles! I came home to my sweet husband that is just a "little" behind in his training (can't blame him when he has to work 16 hours days for 14 days straight) proudly telling him how far I had run. So that night comes, we put the kids to bed and he said, "I just really need to go running. I think I will run about 4 miles or so." So time goes by, and by, and I am starting to wonder whether he passed out on the road somewhere. Then I hear the door open and get his ipod thrown at me. You see he has the Nike + which is a cool little device that tells you how far you have gone, how fast you ran, all the cool stats. So I look down to see it read 7.58 miles!!! What? He isn't even in shape yet! Let's just say he hurt a little more than I did the next day. In his words, "like a baseball bat to the knees."
So this means war...I realize it is a war that I will most likely never win, but I am competitive and will try. So I need some help. I am in a mad search for good pump up songs. 7+ miles takes (me at least) a long time and good music is key. So let me know if you have a song that just keeps you going...thanks :)
