Busted 5K

in All Posts

I had plans to run Charlotte’s famous Thunder Road race this morning, but I woke up to the sounds of a sick baby on the monitor.  Instead of pulling on my sneakers, I headed upstairs to give Henry lots of cuddles and kisses – this is his first cold.  Poor buddy.  He seemed sleep deprived – damn stuffy nose! – so we took a long three hour nap together, and now he seems like he’s doing a lot better. 


I’ve said this three years in a row now, but Thunder Road will have to wait until next year – I always miss the race for some reason.  I was planning on doing the 5K this morning, but maybe I’ll do the Half Marathon next year to more than triply make up for this morning. Smile


Breakfast for everyone!  I just realized that my last three posts feature eggs… what can I say?  I really, really like eggs.  And our fridge is kind of empty. Smile 






And loads and loads of Christmas blend coffee from Trader Joe’s (SO GOOD).


Now that Henry is feeling better, I think I’ll go for a long run.  Gotta get in the mileage somehow, someway!

    I love that food picture with Henry in the background peeping in! He is such a cutie. I could eat eggs with every meal 🙂

    Glad he is feeling better! I have an almost 4 month old son so i like reading about what’s to come. How is the sleep training going?

    • Caitlin November 17, 2012, 3:38 pm

  • Maria November 17, 2012, 2:01 pm

    Caitlin, I hope Henry bounces back fast. I was waiting for the “Mind and body after baby” – did I miss it or have you skipped this month?

    • Caitlin November 17, 2012, 3:38 pm

      i need to write it 🙂

    Poor Henry! 🙁

    What’s in that little veggie side salad thing you’ve got on your plate? Looks AMAZING!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles November 17, 2012, 6:47 pm

    Glad I’m not the only one who eats eggs like it’s their job. 😀

  • Caitlin November 17, 2012, 10:32 pm
