Three Things Thursday ...

1. Remember back in May when I was complaining about how school was over and I was never going to be able to get my runs in? Well, guess what? School has STARTED and I can not get my runs in.

Currently, my midweek runs are 5, 10, 5, 10. During the summer, G, the rest of our posse and I would meet at 5:30 a.m. and get our mid-week long runs in. 10 miles by 7 a.m. Now, that school is back in session and we all need to be home to send our crews off every morning, 10 miles just isn't happening. Sure, we can get those 5 milers in, but if I have any intention on running 10 miles before school, it needs to be at like 5 a.m. from my front door.

Fortunately, G's youngest and Doodle start preschool next week. That means we can resume our "preschool stroller runs" with Dilly. On Wednesday mornings, we will alternate pushing my single BOB for 10 miles. And as torturous as it seems, I am looking forward to it. But, when do I do that other 10 miler?

2. A few weeks back, I won a personalized bibfolio from the lovely Lady Em. Yesterday, I went to pick it up. Just look how freaking sweet this thing is ...
Thanks Lady Em!

3. If you like my bibfolio, then you are going to love my next giveaway. Here's a few hints:
  • It's hosted by one of my favorite bloggy peeps, Suzy HERE
  • The prizes will be personalized to the winners. Yes, I said WINNERS.
  • There might be some reference to my love of cupcakes included in the prizes.
  • If I can get my act together, it will be posted tomorrow ...

I really love that bib portfolio! It's just what I need. I'm super excited for you giveaway!

Oh WOW! I am so loving that I didn't thrown any out the other day when I was going through "the drawer". I was so tempted but then thought "NO WAY!" I never would have thought to put them in something like this. What a grand idea!!

That bib portfolio is such a great idea! :)

that second 10 miler in the week... is the reason I have to run both Sat & Sun... but I know why you can't do that. If it works out, maybe every other week we can do the second one on the Fridays that you're not at school. Poor Dilly.

While I've never attempted a 10-miler with my jogger, I also usually look forward to running with it... I know it only makes me stronger, so I look forward to the benefit of having it along for the run. I haven't run with it the last few weeks though because R has started to get fussy about mid-run.

I love the bibfolio and the giveaway looks freaking awesome! Can't wait to enter in that one!

Marlene said...

Would you consider splitting up the 10 miler day into 2 runs? Or will you shuffle the schedule? Just wondering.

I am waiting for the running/back to school routine to work itself out too. Good luck!

Mike Russell said...

That is sweet -- I am going to have my wife scrapbook all my bibs from now on. She will love you for this idea!

Finally a use for that scrapbooking room in the house!

I don't have any ankle biters and fitting in 10 miles during the week is hard for me, too! You are a rockstar! Good luck with it all!

Love that folder! I need something like that - right now they are all shoved in a manilla folder!
Happy Thrusday girlie!

The bibfolio is a great idea. Little did I know when I started running that there would be a reason to keep all of my bibs. ;-( Most of them have been tossed. Oh well. It is very clever and a fun way to remember the event.

Somehow you will fit it all in . . . it seems like we always do. . . . somehow!

That is so cute! I need one, especially if I plan to keep adding bibs to my (very small) collection! Love it. And, your new giveaway rocks.
