I can't believe there are only two weeks of summer left before the kids go back to school. I know that in some parts of the country they've already started back. It seems like the summer has flown by.
In running news, we are into the longer runs for our training for the fall marathons. I ran 14 miles a week ago and ran 16 this past Saturday. I've felt really well during the runs and have been running faster than in the past, so that's a good thing. We're scheduled for 18 this coming weekend.
And while some of my teammates are complaining of aches and pains, I think the thing that helps me is that I never get to go home after a long run and take a nap. I'm always off to a soccer game or something that one of the kids has going on. The fact that I keep moving all day helps keep me loose and keeps me from feeling sore. Although I could really use that nap.
I do have to say, however, that I am very proud of Madison. She decided that she wanted to tryout for a club volleyball team this year. Tryouts were today and she earned a spot. Practices won't start until November and the tournaments will all be in the spring. Hopefully her volleyball and Dalton's soccer will be on different weekends, but we'll see. It should be crazy, but fun.
It never ends around here!
