It was another hot week here in the south and the humidity was out of control. Can it be fall already?!

On Saturday morning, I met up with my friend Heather for a run with a new local running group. Our running group had the day off, so we decided to check out a new one! The routes were all familiar to us, although we wish we would have gotten started a little earlier. Ah well...lesson learned! We ended our run a bit over six miles and called it a day!

On my way home, I stopped by Starbucks to pick up breakfast for my friend Kim and I. Kim offered to watch Brayden while I ran because Jason was working days. So nice of her! 

I started my Monday morning off with a nice run. It was a beautiful morning, too!

Although I wasn't initially trying, I ended up with negative splits - the first mile was 9:23, the second mile 8:59, and the third 8:48.  After seeing the second mile right below 9 minutes, I knew I wanted to try and push it for the third mile. I was winded for sure, but it felt great!

All done!

On Tuesday afternoon, my little one and I went out for a 2 mile walk. He stayed awake the entire time (he never does) and enjoyed looking at the trees and everything that passed us by!

His Mickey fan is a big hit, too!

I intended to run on Thursday but ended up a the dentist AGAIN. This time was a minor fix that took maybe 30 seconds and all is now well. Thank goodness! I'm going to attempt to  either run or cross train this afternoon after work.

Hope you have a super fabulous weekend! :)


  1. He just gets cuter and cuter every week! Glad you were able to enjoy a walk with him this week.

  2. I'd like it to be fall. I'm getting cabin fever and would really like to run outside and see how my strength training is going. I've been waking up early so I'll charge my garmin to prep for tomorrow, in the shade.

  3. I love that little fan you have for Brayden - so necessary in the south!

  4. I am SOOOO ready for fall! Your little one is adorable! The fan is a great idea!

  5. Aww he definitely looks like he is enjoying his fan!

  6. You're doing great with your runs! My allergies started acting up on vacation so I'm trying to recover. I think it's been 2 weeks since I've ran. Not good!
