Fill in the Blank Friday



1.   I am currently obsessed with   getting enough miles logged so I'm ready for the Eugene marathon in 60 days-eek.


2.  Today I am happy because  I slept well, it's warmer then it's been here in Portland so I can run today without my lungs hurting.  Also I'm happy because I'm going to the mountain for some couple time with the husband in 2 days.  Hooray.  Oh and I'm also happy because Aaron is reading! Such a smart boy.

3.  The age I am is    33  and the age I feel is    33.  I feel like I'm doing the things a 33 year old would be.  I've gone to college, had a child, bought a house and have investments, traveled some and am in a steady job.  I feel more active then most 33 mamas I know so in that respect I feel like I'm still in my 20's-until my knee gives me trouble on long runs that it. 

4.  My favorite place is     on the trail running a race with my sister or laying flat on a massage table.

5.  Something I have been procrastinating is     getting Aaron's passport and mine renewed.  It's hard to find a time Dave and I can both take Aaron to get it done.  I also have procrastinated the cleaning of Aaron's toy room, art stuff in the sun room and closet.  His stuff just seeps out all over everywhere. 

6.  The last thing I purchased was  strawberries, asparagus and pull-ups (come on Aaron lets be done with pull ups)

7.  The thing I love most about my home is   that it has so much character.  Being an older house it just has some great history to it.

Highlights from my week


  1. Finishing up an amazing European vacation in Paris.  Rome, Florence and Venice were amazing too.
  2. Coming home and spending time with my little guy.  I missed him so much-13 days is much to long.
  3. Enjoying a presidents day morning with Aaron at the zoo and Children's museum.
  4. Getting back into my workout routine and getting some miles in.  Only 11 weeks until the Eugene Marathon.
  5. Getting my house and my mother in laws house all clean.
