A day of rest.


After my race, I wanted nothing more than to do… well, nothing… on my Sunday.  So that’s what I did.  Well, if ‘nothing’ involves stretching and foam rolling non-stop (oh, the aching!), grocery shopping, washing the sheets, and chasing after the wee one.  You know how it goes…


I guess this is my short and sweet way of popping into say ‘hey’ and that I hope you had a relaxing weekend, too.  Here’s to the upcoming week!  Let’s make it grand.

    I think you deserve a relaxing Sunday, even if it’s still kind of busy. 🙂

    Love having those rest days. I didn’t run a half mary like you did yesterday, but I totally gutted the apartment and now it’s clutter-free! Today was my rest day too 🙂

    Sounds kinda perfect to me 🙂

    Hey to you too! I did a run on Sunday and then worked in the afternoon, so it wasn’t all that relaxing… and it’s currently Monday afternoon here and hot as hell.

    The photo is hilarious – I think you should Photoshop a speech bubble from Henry saying “Hey Dad – if you just took your shirt off for this shot, there’d be even more eye candy for Mum’s blog readers!”

    Glad you are taking rest! You deserve it 🙂

    Congrats on such a huge achievement!
    What is the sauce on your meal? Looks delish! Are those lima beans or fava beans by chance?

    dohhhh so cute!!!! I love how his hair comes down in the front–and the picture reminds me of Simba from Lion King, hah!

    Henry may have your husband’s coloring, but, girl, that is YOUR face on that little guy! He is such a little cutie!

    Awesome job on that half! Congrats. 🙂
    I’m 50/50 with rest days. I tend to get bored so my intended rest day turns into an on the couch – off the couch routine all day long.

    Well deserved day of rest! Hope you get “un-sore” soon!

    I raced Saturday as well and didn’t want to do a dang thing after. And I have to say, Henry is adorable!!! Congrats on your GREAT race!!

    I seriously need to get a foam roller – my body hates me because of it. Enjoy your rest time 🙂
