In my mailbox I received this little package (all good things come in small packages - right?)
The note she included really touched my heart ♥. I was grinning from ear to ear while reading it. It is now folded and tucked into my running pouch so I can take her support and encouragement along with me.
Dear, sweet Syl sent me the coolest necklace with charms from Lift Your Sole. She couldn't have chosen a better one for me. I absolutely ADORE it! Everytime I see it in the mirror I smile. ☺
Now I can take Syl along with me when I run. That makes me SO happy!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Syl!
I ♥ it!
Sunday morning I went out on my favourite trail run. I was to meet my friends around 9, but went early with my husband and our dog. We did about 4 1/2 miles together, until I ran into my friends. He had to get to work. I ran for about 1/2 a mile with my friends, but they're just starting up again so I ended up going ahead and running another 6 miles on my own before meeting them again for coffee. Total of 11.1 miles.
It was super hot and humid out and I forgot to put on my Glide before I left. So now I'm sporting some "lovely" chafing on my arms. Grrr! But the day was beautiful, the run was great and relaxing, and I really enjoyed hanging out with my friends .... so I'm not complaining.
I love to run with friends, but the reality is becoming that we are at too different of paces. I think from now on I will just arrange to meet them for coffee afterwards. The last few times I've gone ahead of them, come back and basically said a quick hi, then gone off on my own again. That's OK, but sometimes when I stop/slow down I find it difficult to get back into my rythym. I think I'd rather just keep going non-stop.
A couple of you asked what kind of dance my daughter does. This year she is doing Jazz & Hip Hop. Both at a very low level. But she has a good time and has met some good friends through it. She did gymnastics for a number of years, then dance the last couple years. Next year she wants to play soccer because "it's more active" and not a "girly" sport. She also has lots of friends who play soccer. Kind of late to get into it, but I think she'll have fun.
I got some of my prep done this weekend, though not all. And some I have to redo. I'll be back with that story tomorrow.
Have a great day!
