I'm Alive....

Whew! It's been quite a while since my last blog post, where to start?! (I promise my neglect does not go unwarranted.  See, I was on travel for work from July 9th until July 20th and I am just now catching my breath!)

Besides traveling, not much has been going on in my life so it's time to jump back on the bandwagon and get my butt in gear.  While I was away, I managed to gain 4lbs and ran only twice (major fail). I'm supposed to be in week 4 of marathon training and have only compelted week 1! That won't stop me though! I am determined to stay on course, so this week's plan is two 30-45 min runs with a 5.5 mile long run.  No big deal right? (I have a feeling I will regret my laziness while I was away). Let's face it, I had all the opportunity and tools to get my runs in, I was just being a MAJOR slacker!
Last night I was going to run, but the husband and I had my family over for dinner.  My cousin is in town auditioning for the exclusive U.S. Army's Ceremonial Band! He is currently a saxaphone player for the Army and decided to audition for the a saxaphone position that opened up in the ceremonial band. (There is only 1 slot to fill, apparently people stay in these bands until they retire or die.)  About 30 people auditioned yesterday and he was one of 8 called back today! (UPDATE: He didn't make the spot, but I'm happy he made it this far!) Needless to say, I was visiting and entertaining so I didn't run. :(

Tonight is my night though....4 miles! Then tomorrow I'll do 4.5 so my Saturday 5.5 mile run won't be so bad.

I will do the rest of my two week update through pictures. Happy Hump Day y'all!
