Heyyyy Friday! Always great to see you again. The past couple of weeks have absolutely flown by for me. There are just so many great things going on around here! Let me catch ya up to speed a bit.
I decided on a marathon.
After a lot of thinking about what race I want to run since my race was canceled, and focusing mostly on the logistics of everything, I am going with the Best Damn Race Cape Coral Marathon. It’d definitely not the most scenic race (it’s 2 identical loops) but it does fit best in my schedule. It’s a little further away from my original race day, but it is pretty close to where I live. I’ll be able to stay with a friend the night before, and the race entry is extremely affordable. I was leaning a little more toward the West Palm Marathon, but the date just doesn’t work because…..
We are buying a house!
We had been looking for a house since April, and just wasn’t able to get anything. We out offers on a couple but weren’t able to get them, and then one of the ones we loved came back on the market. We put in an offer, and it was accepted! We close on December 1st, and then move that Friday. Hence, why I can’t run a marathon on the 7th. Too much moving to do! Now, we still have the inspection to get through, but keep your fingers crossed for us! I really hope this goes through. The house has some updating that is needed, but the bones are good. It should be a fun project for Marcus and I for sure. Just check out that snazzy wallpaper.
I registered for my first post-baby race
I haven’t participated in a road race since before Grant was born, and I am excited to finally get my feet wet again. I will be running in the Florida Halloween Halfathon. I ran the 5k last year when I was pregnant, and loved the experience. I also PR’d on the same course (different race) back in 2013. I am super excited to get back to racing, and I’m even more excited about the bling! Check out the medal!
Grant took some awesome photos.
We Grant’s 6 month photos about a week ago, and I finally got the order in yesterday. I can’t wait to share the edited photos with you, but here is one from the shoot, taken on my phone.
Fall is coming to Florida!
I know most of you have been having nice weather for a while now, but it has been so hot here this summer. This weekend, it looks like we are finally getting a couple of cooler mornings! I may just have to delay my long run to Sunday to take advantage of it
I think those are my biggest highlights this week! Anything fun happen with ya’ll this week?
