Food

Last week started with Todd coming home from a short work trip to DC and a doctors appointment for me. It ended with plenty of running, food, family and fun! I did 2 easy 6 milers, one 10 x 400 (.25 miles) @ 6:27 pace workout and got in 8 wonderful miles with Jolene on Friday. Friday afternoon Kara and I had our usual Froyo date, but my parents joined. Kara was SO excited when they walked in. Saturday began the normal way, with Kara and pancakes. She slept until 8:45!!! I ended up getting up around 8:30 which is […]

Kara Todd Israel

It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve blogged and I blame it on Irma! Last week started with the hurricane, which came in Sunday night into Monday. I’ll do a whole separate post on that, but it affected a lot. Luckily, we didn’t have any damage, but a lot of people lost power, including our work. We got a text Monday that work would resume Wednesday. We got in on Wednesday and after an hour were told to go home because the AC wasn’t working and we were still on a generator. Great. We picked up Kara and went home Thursday […]

A Little Late… Week In Review

Monday: I usually take Monday as a rest day, but due to doctors appointments and work obligations, I had to change some runs around. Since I’d had a long run the day before, I kept it easy, with my hear rate low. Seems like a long time ago now, but last Monday was the Solar Eclipse. At daycare, Kara did some crafting and at work I planned an ice cream viewing party for our 550 employees. It was a hit! Kara has started loving to put her hair in a pony tail and is still loving all the food, haha. […]

Happy Monday! This is going to be a busy week for me! I’ve got a lot going on at work and with doctors appointments and I’m ready to get the ball rolling! Here are some highlights from last week… Kara is obsessed with riding in the passenger seat of the car. She goes to the garage door and yells car! car! We just go around the neighborhood, but she sits the whole time and absolutely loves it! (she is wearing a diaper in the second pic- just for clarification) I know people loath the treadmill, but I love it! Maybe […]

Kara Car

Happy Monday Folks! Last week was somewhat less hectic than others but, as usual, it flew by. How we are already in the middle of August just baffles me! Since I’m not training for anything, I figured I’d give you a little rundown of my runs during the week, with some “last week life” thrown in… Monday: I always take Monday as a rest day. Ever since I started running, I’d take the day after my long run off. Some people like to do a little shake out run, but for me, a complete day off works best. Plus, with work, it’s […]

Wednesday Tempo

Last week had just enough going on to keep us on our toes and having fun! I think the highlight of my week was Kara pooping in the potty! I swore I’d never be THAT mom that posts pictures of her kids poop, but here I am! haha. At least I covered it up… Kara is always pulling on her diaper and saying poo poo. We sit on the potty regularly, even though she normally just wants toilet paper to wipe, but we haven’t officially started “training” her. Wednesday night while I was lifting weights and Todd and Kara were in […]

Kara Froyo

As the title says, I have a lot to recap from last week, so let’s get to it! Last week we were a bit worried that Kara was getting sick. She didn’t have a fever but felt warm and had a slightly running nose and cough. Todd ended up staying home with her Monday and Tuesday and sent me all kind of fun pictures and videos! This was my fave… I got a new “toy” to add to my running data obsession The Milestone Pod. You can see just SOME of the data it provides below. It syncs up with […]
