Three Things Thursday ...

Graduation - Today is Doodle's last day of preschool and tonight is her graduation ceremony.

an accurate depiction of her current excitement level ...
I know that we have been talking about her going to Kindergarten for months, but I can't help but think that this year just flew by. Who am I kidding? The last five years flew by. Before I know it, Dilly is going to be headed to Kindergarten too ...

Swimtastic - I've been doing a lot of shorter intervals during my swims recently, so I decided that I was going to do a two-mile endurance swim this morning. I was slightly apprehensive heading in, as 128 laps is just crazy talk, but I crushed it.

Mile 1: 32:59
Mile 2: 33:59

In case you are struggling with math this morning, that's two miles in 1:06:58. Three minutes and thirty seconds faster than I swam it in early March. I'm feeling kind of rockstar.

ZOOMA - Tomorrow morning I am headed to Annapolis to work the Tough Chik booth at the ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon and 10K. While I am not running, several of my friends (mostly bloggers) are and I can't wait to see them all and cheer them on. And if you happen to be running, please stop by the booth and say hi.

And if you haven't run a ZOOMA event before, I highly recommend that you do. These women-only event are empowering, supportive and the perfect excuse for a girls' weekend. Plus, the ZOOMA Race Series was developed by three running mothers. How cool is that? You can learn all about them HERE.

I had an awful experience with the See Jane Run half marathon in Austin 2011. I havent signed up for another womens race because of it.
Ihave heard great things about ZOOMA though!

Wait. 128? 128?!?!? I have not the slightest doubt in my mind - I would have died.

Way to go! You are pretty much rockstar.

I did the Zooma Annapolis a few years ago and LOVED it! Great after party with wine and music :)

I would kill for a 2 mile 1:06 and I mean that. It would be worth going to prison for that time just once.
