This and That

I am getting dangerously close to the half marathon I registered for back in July...18 days! I feel pretty good about it...I think? Sunday, I ran 10 miles in a local state park, the path along the creek was lovely, cool and soft on the hoofs...I felt great the whole run. I am on the hunt for new running shorts/pants...after a long run I have chub rub issues...and I am not sure the world is ready for me in compression shorts! Looking for suggestions!


I am very busy...lots of stuff out there. Just delivered a big bedroom job over the weekend and picked up her family room while I was there. Below is a picture of the dining room valances I did for her back in the spring.

Currently working on a window seat cushion and pillows, linen draperies, roman shades, etc...

They are back into the swing of things. Lulu LOVES first grade and made the transition from half day to full day without issue. And I am adjusting too!
Emma has a man teacher this year....so good for her!
Fifth Grade is an adjustment for Caroline... several different teachers and lots of homework. But, she can handle it, most days anyway!
All three are playing field hockey and all three are on different teams...2 practices a week and games on Saturday...never at the same location...so that's a blast!

He is good...traveling a bit and training for a this and of course he is my trainer!

Totally filthy and getting groomed tomorrow...thank heaven!

That's all I have!

Good luck with the 1/2 marathon!! I ran my first in March, and the most I did in preparation for it was 9 miles. You will do just fine. For the chafing, I recommend "Body Glide" - you can get it at any running store and it works like a charm.
