Training for the Gulf Coast/Mandeville Half Marathon is going really well! I'm excited for a weekend away and I can't wait to run my first baby half-marathon!

Yesterday, I brought Madalynn back to the vet. She had a cyst/tumor removed from her leg a couple of months ago and in turn needed a wider area (margin) of non-tumor cells removed. Sweet girl was so nervous but was so happy to see all of the dogs in the waiting room - she loved making friends!


Unfortunately, they had to place a drain after the surgery because of the location of the tumor and they wanted to observe her overnight. I definitely missed her but Pixie lived it up! Those two are so funny!


Yesterday after work, we had a Relay for Life planning meeting where we officially chose our 2016 theme (Dr. Seuss)! This note was left on the board by our director (check out her hashtags)! Baby Seal will be six weeks old around the time of Relay for Life so we are calling him/her a Relay baby! I definitely realize there's no way I'll be able to be as involved with this year's Relay as I was in the past, but they're still letting me sit on the planning committee! :)


One of our  committee members made this amazingly delicious cheesecake for the meeting! It was SO good!


...and our director brought cupcakes! So sweet! 


Tonight, we are celebrating Jason's sister's birthday (happy early birthday, Lacey!). I also have a haircut followed by a call with my insurance's healthy pregnancy nurse....which sounds super redundant to me because I AM a nurse but ok whatever.

Saturday morning, I'm missing my planned long run (taking a break from long runs this week...everyone needs that every once in a while) for an out of town Relay for Life conference. Following the conference, we are celebrating my dad's 60th birthday back home!


Happy early birthday, Poppy! Won't be long until you'll be able to take naps like this again...on a different couch of course! :)

What are your weekend plans? Anything exciting happening? Are you experiencing fall weather where you live?

  3. Sounds like you have some fun weekend plans. We are getting ready to deal with tons of rain from Hurricane Joaquin. My long run will be on a treadmill, but I plan to watch football games while I run! :)

  8. After days of warm weather, it definitely turned Fall this week! I am hoping to still get my long run in tomorrow but we are suppose to be getting a tropical storm!
    Hugs to sweet Madalynn! I know I get real nervous anytime a procedure is done at the vets. I know our pets have to feel uncomfortable too. -M
