Three Things Thursday ...

Vacation - The girls and I are leaving tomorrow for a week long road trip, where we will visit Virginia Beach, New Jersey and Baltimore. I'm sure it will be quite the adventure, as traveling outnumbered 3:1 always is. And since we are out of here in less than 24 hours, there are two things I have been doing a lot of recently - Packing and Working Out.

Since Friday night, I have logged 103 miles (63 bike, 40 run) over 11 workouts (and I still have today's run on tap). Knowing that I would have a hard time getting all my runs in while we are gone, I "front loaded" my schedule this week to leave the fewest (and shortest) runs left to complete during our travels. It's worked out quite well, but when bed time rolls around I am DEAD TIRED. I feel like I could sleep for 12 hours. Which of course is never going to happen ...

No Shut-Eye - Dilly, being the angel that she is, thought it would be a fabulous idea to wake up at 1 a.m. last night, and not go back to sleep until 5 a.m. Obviously, she didn't get the memo that I AM DEAD TIRED.

Every 10-15 minutes for four hours straight, Dilly got out of her bed, walked to her door and yelled for me (J was out of town).

Pure insanity.

Needless to say, I am not in a very good place right now. She, however, got up for the day at 7:15 feeling fresh and rejuvenated. I'm sure by 2:15 p.m., I'll have a monster on my hands.

Loot - I am running with Team Grassroot Soccer and have committed to raising $3000 and I need your help to reach my goal.

Right now, I am hosting an AWESOME fundraising raffle HERE. There are 9 fabulous prizes left and I will be selecting the NEXT 3 WINNERS TOMORROW. You know you want to enter. All you have to do is make a donation HERE and then leave a comment on the raffle post. Easy peasy.

And, if you want another shot at winning a sweet prize, check out my current giveaway HERE. Thanks to OnlineShoes.com, one lucky winner will walk (or run) away with a new pair of Brooks.

Sleep is also a part of your training! Please don't over do it.

Eek! We had lots of those days when BW was younger - hope you get some sleep soon. Enjoy the road trip! Thanks for voting for me, btw! Just found out that I won this morning!

Good idea front-loading your week. We're away next weekend for 4 days so I'll be doing the same. Good luck on the road trip and I hope Dilly isn't too much of a bear later.

The good news is that kids always seem to pull it together when the chips are really down, like when you get into a car for a long trip w/o your spouse for help! Enjoy

Ugh, that's a lot of driving to do when you're DEAD TIRED. I don't know about you, but nothing makes me sleepier than driving/riding in a car. And that's if I'm wide awake to begin with. If I'm already tired before we start, FORGET ABOUT IT.
