It’s time for the monthly Lately…
Lately…My love for running races has been nowhere to be found. I’m training for the Leaf Peepers half in October as part of Rise.Run.Retreat but I don’t really feel like I’m training. I keep saying that I am going to run a race before (in fact I’ve been saying that since the beginning of the year) but I just don’t feel the need to do it. I thought maybe I had the racing spark again after Mt. Washington but it died out. Part of the reason is that my posterior tib still bothers me some days. It’s not horrible but it’s noticeable if I step a certain way. Part of me thinks racing will take me over the edge and end up completely injured again.
Lately…Just like everyone else, I have been loving the Olympics. I watched a pre-Olympics special and was bawling like a baby. It’s kind of like when I watch Ironman Kona on TV. The stories behind the athletes get me every time! Last night I watched Synchronized Swimming. I had no idea what incredible athletes those women are. Holy strength and endurance!
Lately…I want to spend more mornings like this. Just another reason why I choose to wake up at crazy early times. I’ll take the sunrise on land or by sea. Always worth it.

Lately…Ron and I got hooked on a show called Kingdom. It’s a couple of years old that airs on the Audience Network (Never heard of it? Me either!). At first I thought it was totally cheesy but it grew on me. It’s about a retired MMA fighter who opens his own gym and trains athletes, including his two sons. One of the sons is Nick Jonas. Let’s just say Nick Jonas is all grown up and does stuff that little Nick Jonas would never even think of doing. It’s a totally addicting show and we stayed up way too late, too many nights watching episodes.
Lately…My yoga practice has been almost nonexistent. My current studio has me feeling blah. I’m not a fan of the schedule. I found another studio but I can’t switch until the end of September. And until school starts, I won’t be able to attend any morning weekday classes because my kids are done with camp.
Lately…I’m home all this week with the kids. Camp finished 2 weeks before school starts. Sounds great but not when you can’t take 2 weeks off for a vacation and you have no place for your kids to go. I’ve got this week with the kids and Ron has next week. We’ve been busy so far at the beach and doing things around town.
Lately…I recently learned that peanut butter does in fact get gum out of hair. After withholding for quite some time, I finally caved and let the kids try it. Guess who won’t be having gum anymore? Ugh. When does school start again?!?!
Lately…I’ve been thinking about getting a group of friends together to hike Mt. Washington before the summer ends. I wonder if I can find any takers?
Linking up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud.
What’s been going on with you lately?
Have you ever had gum stuck in your hair? I’ve never. I’d be so irate if it happened to me.
