SHE’S HERE!!! I try not to complain about it very much but I miss my family (I am sure that there are a lot of us in that same boat:) Having my cousin come to visit takes away the homesickness.
We had some people over for dinner last night and so I got really creative in the kitchen and cooked some chicken in the crockpot with bbq sauce and then Costco did the rest.
Costco tortilla chips are extra salty which means I had to go back for about 100 more.
Ghirardelli brownies (also from Costco) for dessert. I always bake them for 5 minutes less than the box tells me too because the insides must be underbaked.
And then I had some of Billy’s fancy chocolate…75% cocoa…. it was delicious but I would still prefer a Milky Way.
Last but not least an evening walk.
I have my next marathon picked out. I was supposed to do one this summer but my IT Band prevented me from training for that. My coach has this thing where he wants us to think about our long term running goals rather than just racing and signing up for every race under the sun and getting injured every 5 seconds like I used to. He has me on track to peak in my training for CIM this December so it is fun to think about this race as I am deciding whether or not to get out of bed and run in the morning.
This is getting me up and ready to work hard:
I am learning running patience.
I have a half marathon in August and 3 in October (not racing all of them, running some just for fun) but the main focus will be CIM. I can’t wait.

Anyone have a marathon scheduled in the next little while? Which one?
What is one of your long term running goals?
Brownies: edge or middle piece?
Who is missing their family right now? When is the next time you get to see them?
