No race + silentish Saturday

The race isn’t happening this weekend… We originally planned on driving the 3.5 hours south to make it to a half marathon expo yesterday (the race is this morning) but we didn’t go.   My family is going through some tough stuff right now (I’m always pretty open about my personal lows but can’t always share what everyone is going through) and when we got the phone call yesterday to be together, we went straight to be with everyone yesterday.  Family > running.  Always.  I really don’t have a lot to say today other than that but I have a few pictures from the day.

No run yesterday but we were all pretty drained by the end of the day.

Hung out sitting on the ground for most of the day.

Yeah, that’s a lot of snow.

Makes my heart melt:

Three amazing snacks from the day:

1. Celery with pb (my dad even took off the celery strings:)

2.  Pistachios.  These are so good.

3.  By far the best chocolate at See’s Candy—>  marshmallow, chocolate and caramel.

That’s gorgeous:

By the time we left we were ready for dinner.  Ate in the car, it was delicious.

The main reason we go to Chic-fil-A… this sauce.

Soccer starts soon so she is getting ready with her stretches.

For those of you loving This Is Us, they made an apology for making us cry during every episode.

I’ll be back tomorrow morning.  Need a good sweat this morning and then the rest of the day with family.  I hope your weekend is a beautiful one!

I thought of you on my run this morning (hope that's not too weird… I just had such a good run and it made me think of you and your blog!). I've not run in nearly a month because of injury, but I got out and ran a few miles in pouring rain with winds so strong my hat was blowing off and I was just smiling like a loon because it felt so delightful to be running again :)

I have felt this same way before…nothing like the joy of running again after taking time off for an injury! Glad you’re able to run again :-)

Is it me or have you been crying??? Oh, life is hard….we love the good times but the hard times are hard. My dad is having health issues right now and had a mini stroke. They can’t figure out his blood pressure and its been running way too high…he is almost 75 and I cannot EVER remember a day that he was sick. ever.

This is hard on us, on mom and on him. Hope your family is strong and know we will all pull through ~ what ever the outcome being God’s outcome.
