We just got back this late afternoon from our 10 day gal trip to Oregon / Seattle with me and my daughters.
Got matching corny hats and wore some matching tops in Seattle!
I did manage to run 3 different times - including in the rain out at the coast!
Left is BEFORE the run - Right is AFTER our 2.3 mile run at the coast (ups & downs) in the pouring rain!
One COOL thing was finding a GREEN basketball at the store, I just had to get. I was in the mood from seeing "WICKED" which was fabulous! Now I have a green and PINK basketball. And I did bring my ball back with me on the plane. The pilot asked us which one was the ball player, and he seemed surprised that it was me and not one of my girls! I like surprising people.
I found me a ball! - Boarding the plane today with my ball!
My peeps from Oregon totally wasted me on the court. It was like non-stop sprinting back and forth on that full court, and their passes that were incredible.
I did splurge a bit with my eating and it got me into trouble the first couple nights. I had two slices of pizza and the next morning a cinnamon roll. Well, my body was not used to that high carb food and sugar and by the afternoon I was sick and had cramps and gas. NOT good on vacation. It's like going from high octane fuel to crap fuel and it makes your motor sputter. This is good for me to recognize. I feel SO MUCH BETTER on veggies and lean meats.
It was nice to come home to my man and boys, though and now it's back to the old grindstone! Back to getting my running back into high gear and back to our basketball tournament this weekend.
I have had some very neat experiences in sharing my "I can do hard things" rocks to many of my family and friends. Some of them are really going through extremely hard times and it meant a lot to them. I had one to give to JOY - but we kept missing each other :( There were several friends and family I missed as well. And yes, Kimberlynn... you are DEF someone I pray for :) So much to blog about, but gotta go for now.
Take care, my friends and remember that LIFE IS GOOD!!
