Vacation or bust

We finally decided to go on vacation... albeit last minute. Not the most ideal time in our schedule. The kids start school next Monday and so do I. I wasn't able to get my student ID from the one school since the camera was down, so I couldn't buy the books. The other school is farther away, so I have to get there and get my ID (pay the bill), and buy the remaining books.

I am not ready to go on vacation. This picture we took last year at OC... boy how we have changed.

And of course, Kiera wakes up in the middle of the night complaining of her other ear hurting. We were finally able to get into the pool on Saturday after a 7 day break because of the ear infection in her right ear... now it is her left ear. UGH!

Despite all of these worries, I got up and ran 4.58 miles this morning. My plan was to run 4, but I ran into my neighbor at mile 2.5 who was running and I decided to run with him. He was running faster than me which helped me pick up the pace - my legs were tired.... I was tired.


Mile 1: 10:00
Mile 2: 9:43
Mile 3: 9:25
Mile 4: 9:00
Mile .58: 8:34

So, off to the beach I go. I have 3 runs while I am there... two 9 milers and another 4 miler. I am excited to get away... don't get me wrong... I just wish it wasn't the week before school starts. But the compromise was that I get to go to the Outlets in Delaware... Yay!
