This morning I got out and ran outside for the first time in what feels like forever.
We are nearing the end of what I think of as our “green season” when the plants come back to life in May things are really green and beautiful usually through June then it starts to turn brown as the summer heat cooks everything. Some wet years it lasts longer and it’s one of my favorite times of year.
Fall is my other favorite for getting out on the run.
After my run the kids joined me in the basement to play while I did my PT.
Cannon was a little tired and didn’t feel great when he was too active so we had a quiet day at home. We have been so busy this summer it was actually nice to slow down and stay home. Over the day Cannon improved, I just think his body needed extra rest to build immunity to his booster.
I had my Athletic greens in the afternoon and the kids had otter pops.
Then we went to the library to get more books and get the kids their own library cards. They were pretty excited about it!
Today is our 16th wedding anniversary, so many years have passed since this magical day.
This year we are keeping it low key but we have done some epic things in the past including a half Ironman, marathon and having a baby (Cannon).
Today was also the 10th anniversary of Cory and my first Ironman!
On June 24th 2012 to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary Cory and I completed Ironman Coeur d’Alene in Idaho. It was our first Ironman and an amazing experience. I have to admit that I have never been more nervous in my life than when I lined up on that crowded beach but I am so glad I challenged myself to do something I never thought I could do. 10 years later I hope that I will someday complete another Ironman but probably when the kids are older, for now I am loving just focusing on running. The 8 hour training rides just don’t interest me.

Maybe some year we will go relax on a beach somewhere!
