Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's day to all the dad's out there. Gary had a nice first one. I made him some bread pudding per his request and dressed Harper in a little Daddy makes me smile onesie. We headed to his dad's house for lunch and to hang out for the day, now I am tiredddd, but need the kid to go to sleep.

Yesterday I ventured out to the towpath and ran 7 miles with some folks I used to run most weekends with, Sara & Harley. Plus we have a new addition Bruce who is training for his first marathon. It was not a pretty run, in fact I only did 6.5 of the 7 I needed to do. The night before was just awful, Harper was awake all night. I literally got 3 hours of sleep. Then I woke up to a torrential downpour. The rain wasn't so bad, the lack of sleep was. I just felt awful and my legs felt like lead. They were also tired from a kickass spin class on Friday. I struggled the whole way and once the sun came out it was humid. SO, anyway, not a great run. I got up this morning and did an easy 4 miler to shake the cobwebs off. I took Fonzie for 1 mile of that run. It was my first time running with him and to my surprise he did really well. I hope to take him a few times a week.

Yummm. Bread pudding. Way to suck it up and get out some tough miles. It will get better, just keep plugging away.

Hey there! Thanks for your message earlier... I would have loved to have had a chance to meet you while we were here, but as you can imagine, there's not a ton of free time! We spent the weekend in Amish country and then are running around trying to catch the rest of the family before we leave tomorrow.
Anyway, glad you and Gary had a good Father's Day! :)
