What a summer. For once in a very long time, I have just stayed home for summer. No far off countries or cross country vacations. Nothing but home sweet Arizona for me all summer long.
It has been so action packed and eventful that I feel like it has been going on forever, and at the same time, like it just begun. I would say that is an indicator of a good thing.
This is my driveway. I have spent many miles running and biking here this summer. As a matter of fact, I would venture to say that I have spent more time running than anything else. Let's just call my summer break a RUNCATION. I have purposefully upped my mileage and spent extra hours in the weight room. You bet your boots I am taking advantage of stay-at-home-mom hours of the day. The biggest excitement of the summer, thus far, is running a half marathon just for fun around town. My sister was interested in running a sub 1hr 50min. I knew I could pace her to make that happen. We did that last Friday in 1 hr 48 min. It was fun and if I dare say, easy. I need another challenge.
Mostly we spend tons of time with my nieces and nephews. Let's be honest, they are my only friends in town. We have sleepovers and rock hunts at my house. I love those fools.
