Bridge to brews 2012

I ran the Bridge to Brews 10k for the second year in a row. My goal was twofold: I wanted to finish the six miles without walking and I wanted to finish faster than the 10:17 minute miles from last year.

I met both my goals and even achieved my secret goal of finishing a race with under 10 minute miles. Ten minute miles may not seem like much to some but it feels pretty darn good to me.

I also had the pleasure of running with two good running buddies, Billy and Taneha, and was inspired by my 62 year old Dad who beat me in his first ever race.

Really, I love to run.

This face

I was SO frustrated with him tonight. Just so, so frustrated. But, I mean, just LOOK at this face! Ahhh, kills me every time.

Blogging by phone

It's really the only way to do it. Fast. Easy. Can do it while sitting on the couch. Beautiful.

In one day I drove through rain, hail, fog, snow and sunshine. Fortunately I ended the day with this.

Bath time baby

The girl loves her "bash".

Just a few more reasons why I love Conor

I went to a Blazer game last night and my friend Taneha took Conor to a birthday party. Here's what she sent me this morning...

"If I haven't already told you a million times I love hanging out with Conor. He was the sweetest boy yesterday. As soon as I got in the car he told me he liked my sweat shirt (jacket) and I looked really pretty. Not the only reason I love him but it scored points. Then we had a conversation about Mommy and her friends and Mommy's new car. Then, "I love my Mommy!" You just want to kiss him all over. He was really a good boy yesterday. Went potty at the 5 minute mark (1 minute) like Tara asked and was totally ok. I told him It was snack time and he said he didn't need a snack. Till he found out it meant cupcakes. I hope you had fun at the Blazer game. Conor and I had fun. Thanks for letting him go with."

God, I love that boy. I also love good friends who remind me how awesome my little man is. It can be easy to forget sometimes and a reminder from an outside source is always good.
