What's on tap.

A little over due, but about 2 weeks ago my brother Levi and the hubs ran the inaugural Stillwater Half Marathon . . . without training for it. I kid you not. Over the course of two months Tony ran 3 times {two 3 mile runs and one 7 mile run}.

Last year it took me 4 months to train for my first half marathon. We didn't really push ourselves, as our goal was to finish, but I'm not sure how much I could have pushed myself past our results. Hand in hand, we finished at 2:00:42, a 9:18 minute mile. I was thrilled.

Until my dear sweet hubby and my competitive bro, with all of their lack of training, ran the half marathon faster than I did with FOUR months of training.

Guys suck sometimes.

I bring this up, because this weekend we're headed up to Duluth for Grandma's festivities again. This time Tony will be running without me. :(

This will be our first trip with Isaac and there's a lot of planning involved. I started talking to Tony about the pack n play and I thought his head was going to snap he was so confused. You just kind of take things for granted . . . like where your child is going to sleep! :)

I will update with Tony's results when we get back. If you will, pray for safety for the runners.

On Sunday we have my Grandma's birthday party, Tony's first Father's Day {totally unprepared} and Father's Day with my Dad . . . who won't return my phone calls.

Definitely awesome, but I would be slightly annoyed too. Makes me sing "Anything you can do I can do better" in the back of my mind. Have a wonderful weekend!

I "hate" how some guys can just pull things out like that. Seriously, that ticks me off like no other. Grrrr!!!

Good for them, but they still suck! Seriously, no training and they were off! Jerks.

They are rarities, you know. Your training was worth it and I'm glad they didn't get injured with their superman attempts! Have fun at Grandmas...that is one I've always wanted to do, it has such a great reputation.
