It’s been a while hasn’t it? I could give you a whole bunch of blah blah blah about why I haven’t posted anything and it may be interesting to some – but would require me to actually stop & think about why I haven’t been posting. To sum it up – I had a lot going on at work…We were getting ready for a family vacation to Florida so I could run at the Disney World Princess Half Marathon… Life was busy.
I have a whole bunch of photos I am going to post up from the trip we took. It was a great time spent with the kids in Disney World. Their first trip, my 3rd, HunBun’s 2nd. The weather held out for us until the last day we were in the park – when it started raining in the afternoon while we were in the Magic Kingdom. The rain didn’t last long nor was it very heavy but people sure whipped out their ponchos like they were going to melt. Of course everyone in the family had hats on their heads except for me…so I just trudged through the drizzle. Good think I wasn’t wearing a white shirt that day – HA!
Although I didn’t get my PR at this race I didn’t do too badly – and I still had fun. It was nice to run in a different place this time and I will say I did have to adjust a bit to the heat & humidity. The one thing nice about running in Florida was that I was not cold during the long wait for the start. I did decide that I am going to get more serious about my training plans for these runs. I have renewed my commitment to speed drills, tempo drills, fartleks and what ever else I read up on in the running magazines and blogs. I’m also doing more about my approach to eating. Although it is relatively healthy, I am going to expend more control over my snacking. I love me some salty chips….so am going to explore the variety of flavors of homemade Kale chips and store bought crunchy nori sheets.
Anyhoo. Got a lot of work emails to get through – only did about 1/2 yesterday and I got a lot of planning to get through for some organizational changes I’m instituting in my team (doesn’t that sound exciting? )
One nice by product of our family trip to Florida? 12yo has been getting up at 6am – instead of his normal 640am…so he’s been on time to leave for school and I’ve not had to pester him to get a move on. Sweet!
I’ll post those pictures up as a wordless montage…
See ya later
