A Vacation From Running?

My summer running vacation us almost over. Training for my next half marathon starts next week. I am excited. I have found (it only took about 40 years) that I need structure, plans and a concrete goal to get me out the door. I really wish I had found running earlier. Ne sense in dwelling, though. Just move forward and be happy that I have found something I love that keeps me motivated.

Do you know what else motivates me? New clothes. I took my first rip to Lulu Lemon. Awesome. I knew that I would spend some money, but I also knew that it would be really cute and great quality. What I didn’t know was that this store (in Glendale) was having a huge sale!! So I got 3 things! Score!

OK, now I realize that the bottoms are a litle bright, but it’s running, it’s supposed to be fun. Plus, I will be highly visible. Also, when you get Lulu Lemon on sale you don’t quesion the color options…too much.

Since my little vacay is almost over I am not going to feel guilty if I can’t make it running this week. Well, I might feel a little guilty. But, other things are on my agenda in the mornings, like going in to my son’s classroom and helping out. I love doing this since I haven’t been able to all year. Next year I will be better x2 since I will have 2 in school.

I just had to share my totaly awesome Lulu finds and get myself geared up for next week. Monday is the THE day!
So I will just leave everyone with a summer vacation is here so Good Luck to all the Mamas out there!

PS- I talked to my SIL about what could have gone wrong with my almond milk. She says she never soaks her almonds and it should keep for a few days, if not a week, in the fridge. Sooooo, I am thinking that maybe I was supposed to refrigerate them while they soaked or rinsed out the water and added fresh water every day or when it looked a little iffy. I’ll give it another go one of these days. Maybe even get some chia seed pudding out of it!
Good luck!
