Where to begin. In the past week and a half I have run a 10 miler, became an Aunt, worked some, worked out less and basically have no idea what I did the rest of the time. So let's back track to the 10 miler.
I signed up for the 10 miler before school was over and thought it sounded wonderful. As Saturday (6/16) approached, I got more and more nervous. That whole week leading up to it some muscle in my thigh was driving me crazy so I was nervous to run but then I was nervous to not run. Being the inner lazy girl that I am...I convinced myself resting it would be good for it and didn't do much besides walk that week. By the time Friday rolled around, I was trying to find ways to induce labor for my sister so I wouldn't have to do it. She was having contractions that Friday afternoon and I thought I had found my golden ticket but then the contractions stopped. By the time Sat at 5 am rolled around...I knew I had to do it! I hadn't slept well the night before. Libby barked the whole night and it was H.O.T in my bedroom (and Megan...I mean hot as in temperature...get your mind out of the gutter). I got up...ate my Cliff bar and headed on my way. I was so nervous. I knew that I would finish but I didn't want to take forever. It took minutes into the race before I got into my head. I started out wanting to finish then I wanted a decent time. Then I really wanted to beat 1.30 which I did! This girl finished her first 10 miler in (drumroll please) 1 hour and 29 minutes!!!!! My average pace was 8:59. Had it down to like 8:30 at one point but those last two miles were s lllll oooo wwwww miles! But I did it and I maybe wouldn't mind doing it again!
Sadly though I didn't sleep much Friday and then Saturday night I slept 0 hours because we were awaiting the arrival of the most precious baby boy to be born into this world! That's right...1 week late we welcomed Scott Alan into our family! All 9.1 lbs of him :) My sister did great and is doing great! She is so strong and adjusting to Mommyhood quite well! I haven't missed a day of the sweeties life yet! I love how close we live to each other! I am constantly finding an excuse to pop up just for a few precious moments of snuggles! Can't believe the little guy is already over a week old! Crazy how time flies!
After Scott arrived, time seemed to fly. I have found time to run to Target like 600 times but can't seem to manage to clean a single toilet. ha. priorities. I would just rather buy new toilets then clean the ones I have ;)! I leave you with all of this chaos and hope that I can find the balance to begin posting regularly and not just to update on my life but about my daily life...eating and exercising because I do do both :)
