Weekend Fun

My hubby and I celebrated our fourth anniversary on Thursday. We have been wanting to take Sophie to a waterpark all winter and it never worked with our schedules, so finally Thursday we headed to Duluth for one night at the waterpark there.


We had lots of fun. AND being in Duluth got me super excited for Grandma's - only a month away! Of course, one little race between now and then - Fargo is less than a week away. Yikes! I have felt really low key about Fargo. I feel like it is more of a training run for a couple of reasons. I've never ran two marathons close together like I will be doing with Fargo and Grandmas and my goal is really just to finish both and have fun.


If I hadn't alreay been feeling low key about Fargo, coming down with a massive cold this weekend and hurting my back today while working in the garden would have brought me right down. Thankfully the cold is already improving and my back injuries are usually pretty responsive to the chiropractor, so I'll be on the phone scheduling an appointment right away tomorrow. My back problems got me my big DNF last spring at Madison and it is NOT going to happen again.

So funny that you were born in Rockford! It's a nice race- most of it on bike paths in parks and along the river. Good luck at Fargo! Looking forward to your race report next week!

I have a Sophie to...love my little girl. I can't imagine doing a marathon let alone two close together. A water park sounds super fun! It's so hot today...Phx temps are climbing fast.

take care.

I hope to see you at Fargo and cheer for you! The half starts an hour later than the full so I won't see you at the start. Good luck and I hope we have great weather!!
