3 miles at 3:30…

IN THE MORNING!!

Yup…kiddo and I got up and out the door at 3:30am this morning to put in my miles BEFORE we drove to the airport for our trip to Boston!!

They were slower than normal miles and it was waaay warmer than it should be at that hour in the dark but its done and now we are happily in our seats on the plane…

Make it a good day Tumblrs!!

Ventura Half Marathon Training W6 D7

Not the miles I had scheduled miles!!

Well today was supposed to be a 5-7 miler but due to an 8:30am semi-final game & a 3:00pm championship time I squeezed in what I could…

Which happened to be a 2.15 mile around the Nike World HQ campus where the championship soccer game was held!!

BEAUTIFUL campus and decent run, albeit short….I will make up for it tomorrow!!

CHAMPIONS!!!

Well POOP!!!

I am posting pictures of pretty flowers to make up for my frustration…

My sweetie was kind and generous enough to book airfare for kiddo and I to come out to Boston this week as this is her only ‘dead week’ for soccer…

Today she called me and told me that we were flying home on the first day of tryouts for next year’s team!!!

I booked the trip seriously thinking tryouts for Monday and Tuesday….

NOT Sunday and Monday!!!

FML!!!

I have now canceled the original return flight with a $300 penalty charge (less $300) and rebooked a return flight one day earlier using a good chunk of my mileage points…

I will have to pay my sweetie back the $300 penalty charge as I feel like complete SHIT about all of this!!

Oh well, its only money right???

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday…

Pouring wine in the beautiful Oregon sunshine…

3 miles

OMG…. Did those sprinklers feel soooo good at mile 1.8!!!

I am not a very good “get up and go run right out the door” person but due to meetings, soccer games and evening activities I needed to get my run in early!!

10:40 pace!!

Whoop whoop!!
