Wordless Wednesday..

If you have any problems with dead animals hit the red X in the top corner now. If not please proceed and see what I got!

A beautiful 7 point! My very first buck ever!!! I got it Monday on the first day of rifle season. I was in a stand on my own property and had Brian sitting right next to me the whole time. He already got a buck so he could not hunt this week. I am so happy (as you can tell from the smile) and have been telling everyone that isn't anti-hunting. We are now good with meat for the year with my buck and Bri's buck.

The ladies at work lately have been making all sorts of different green monsters at lunch. The only thing is they are complaining of not seeing weight loss. I can say it over and over to them about working out but they are all or nothing with the shakes. What is your feeling?? Should I just shut my mouth when I know it takes more than diet most of the time??

Day to day

Right now my running is very day to day. I have been doing girls on the run for 4 weeks now so I have been getting a few miles in with them on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I have been trying to get runs in on Mondays and then doing the family runs on Fridays. I have several races coming up that I just want to have fun with. I am going to try out a 13.1 trail race on the 21st of October. I love tails where you can just disappear from the crowd and enjoy the peace and quiet.

So here's to running for fun this fall and the first fire I have had to build this fall!!

Bday round 2

This weekend I was headed home for my nephews 4th bday.

Little did I know there was a big surprise waiting for me at the party. Bri and his family made the drive up to celebrate my bday as well. It was a surprise party and I loved it!! So we celebrated my nephew turning 4, my BIL turning 40 and myself turning 30. It was a great day with great people!!

In other news I had my first DNS this weekend. I did not go to my goal half marathon today. I have not run further than 3 miles in one run since I hurt my groin water skiing. So it was a hard decision to not go to my favorite race. But a nice surprise party helped me get through the weekend instead :).

Best start to my bday weekend

Today I requested to do anything but cut wood and stain our log home. My request was granted with the help of Manda, Heather and Momma. At 5am Manda and I headed to the Hot Air Balloon Festival! It started later than expected but ended up being awesome!

Afterwards we joined up with Heather at the Beagle Club as the puppies chased bunnies. I never did see a bunny but they were going nuts at some points. (Sorry I was too busy drinking hot cocoa at this point that no pictures were taken) 10:30 am we met up with Momma to hit the mall! We did not return until 4:30pm! We shopped until we dropped but my day did not end there! Manda and I then returned to the balloon festival to see some other attractions. There was an airshow at dusk, an all womens sky diving team show and also glow where the balloons all lit up once it was dark out. 

Overall....I LOVED my day out. Plus when I got home we had a huge pile of firewood and I am not sore from it LOL :)  Thank ladies best day ever!

It happened again...

This weekend was overall very productive. Bri and I worked hard re-staining our house. It is a log home so the logs on the exterior need done every few years. It is a long process but we made a big dent this weekend. I also attempted to run a race with my leg still sore from my water skiing split. It was a very slow race for me. I have never seen a 9:XX mile pace in a 5k race...not even 10k or 15k. I found really quick that downhills are not pretty and I have to pull back even more. The pain traveled from the back of my knee all the way up to my Thutt (thigh/butt). At the finish line I made a very tough decision...I am not going to try to race the half marathon on Sept. 23rd. I know I still have time but a 5k hurt I can't imagine 13.1 miles of hills. I know my leg would be worse afterwards even if I got through it.

I know I will have great friends just like Jess while I take yet another injury break from running.

First days every where

This is what many parents and teachers will be experiencing this week.

Summer recap

Well it has been a quick summer and I start another school year tomorrow. Little world series is here in Williamsport so my district starts a few days later than the other schools. Here are some pictures from my summer.

I went on a cruise to the Bahamas.

I ran a few races including my favorite trail run!!

I attended a bachelorette party that was a wine tour on Seneca lake.

My family all went camping in the adirondacks.

I learned that my left arm really is week when it comes to kayaking.

At this moment I have not run in a week and a half bc I tried to water ski and ended up with a pulled thigh/groin. I plan to try an easy run tonight. I have less than a month until my goal race. I will come back from this by being smart. I already missed one half marathon due to this injury.

QOTD anyone pull your groin?? How long did it take to recover?
