Argh, me hardies! Yes it is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Ironically, I have a story to share that relates to pirates.
Our whole family run was on the run Tuesday. Emily had dance, then it was off to South Bend for the girls' yearly checkup, then dinner with my mom who drove down from Grand Rapids, a stop at Target (ahhhh! Got my fix!), and Dick's Sporting Goods.
On the way to Hacienda to meet my mom for dinner, Emily starting talking in a pirate voice, which is just funny to begin with. This deep "Argh, me hardies" coming from this little 30 something pound, 4 year old just doesn't seem right. We played along and laughed. When we got out of the car, we saw this...
Usually, the girls don't really color on their Polly Pockets so we asked Em why she did it. She informed us that Polly wanted an eye patch.
On the running front, there's nothing new to report. Still running, skipped my strength workout Wednesday because time wise, I couldn't fit it in. Yesterday, ran 9 and struggled with breathing. I think the weed allergens have risen because I had to stop several times to walk and calm down. Today, I have to run 6. I should do it this morning while Emily is at preschool but I really just want to have some time at home by myself and do some cleaning.
Tomorrow, Steve and I are joining his sister on the Apple Festival bike ride. We're going to ride 30 miles around Nappanee, Indiana. I figured a little cross training would be good and while it may not be the intensity of my normal 10 mile runs, I have a feeling I'm not going to have the energy to come home and do 10.
Hope you have a great weekend!
