August Happenings

Time flies these days. As I get older, the days and months seem to pass by more swiftly. August came and went so quickly. This month was an eventful one for us. My sister and her family flew in from Italy to visit for 3 weeks, my grandmother passed away, a dear friend married her best friend, and there were a few events for my brother's future wedding. Here is a recap in photos of last month:

Ready for my friend's wedding.

Everett conquered a bridge that once used to frighten him.
Not many photos but I have a good excuse. I actually don't own a real camera. I really need to invest in one but the Canon I want cost an arm and a leg.

In the subject of running, I'm still putting in miles and following Hal Higdon's Novice 2 Marathon Training Program. If you click on the link, you'll be able to view my weekly schedule. I am currently on week 8. I'm putting in on average about 30 miles a week, running 4 days a week and cross training one day. On my off days, I've been doing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. I finally hit level 3 last week! A new running friend recently asked me to run the Girlfriends Half Marathon on October 14th with her so I've decided to do that and looking forward to my second half!

I need to spend some time and catch up on everyone else's blogs. Sorry I've been a bit missing on my blogging but hope you haven't forgotten about us. I promise to cut out more time to keep you all informed and updated!
