What's with the song?

I am actually wondering what's with the weather, but when I think that I have to think "what's with the song?" which is from a movie that I will not say cause it is embarrassing that I know lines from it. wow long sentence... I am so tired of the weather! Its cold and snowing, oh wait nope its sunny and warm, oh no its cloudy and windy... oh nevermind it's raining... and now we're back to some sun, nevermind it's totally cold and crappy outside. I am ready for the warmth. I am ready to plant my garden. I am ready to work in the yard. I am ready for a tan. I am ready to sit on my grass and watch my kids play. I am ready for school to be out. I am ready for it to be light out till 9 o'clock. I am ready to go swimming. I am ready for the hot, hot sun!

Ragnar Del Sol 2010

I had been planning on running the Del Sol for about 9 months, plenty of time to prepare, so far off. And now it is an awesome memory, funny how time is. I was the captain of our team, and honestly my first time ever to be a captain of anything. I promise I won't let it go to my head, there was nothing qualifying me for this position. What was awesome is that my 2 sisters Kate and Ashley were on my team, along with some super funny characters Keith, Keri and Carol. We laughed and laughed all the way down to Prescott Arizona with a brief stop in Vegas to pick up Keith. The race was 200 miles from Prescott to Tempe. Things didn't go completely to plan due to a runner getting hit by a car. The race was put on hold for a couple of hours and by the time we made it to exchange 24 to sign up for a new start time we had been up for 24 hours. So a team decision was made and we stopped. I was bummed not to be there the next day in Tempe to cross the finish line. But mostly because the finish line was at a park I used to take the kids to. It was my old stomping ground yano? But other than that I was extremely happy with the race. We got to run 2 of our 3 legs. My first run was 5.3 miles and I did it in 48 minutes. I was super excited by the progress I had made in my running, way awesome. My 2nd run was 7.4 miles and I completed that in 1 hour 13 minutes. I still tell myself that I am not much of a runner, but I think I should just go with it and claim that I am. I was so proud of everyone on my team, they all did great and we had an absolute blast. We now have some other races that we are planning on (go team Poison!) I have found something I love, something that I am pretty good at, something that is mine.... that is cool to me. As soon as I get my pics from the race I will post them, cause they are pretty darn awesome.

I'm Working On It

I had a total of 5 little kiddies at my house this morning and thought it would be a good idea to go outside. I am pretty sure I yelled at them half the time. So to you neighbors who are wondering what the heck my problem is just know that I am working on it.

Laughed and Laughed

I just wanted to quickly write down how much I love my sisters. We ran the Ragnar Del Sol this last weekend along with some stinkin awesome people and it was a blast. I love laughing with them and it was so fun to hang out. We were just missing 2 other siblings.... I wish they could have been with us. I am glad we are all friends and so close. We are all so different from one another with different personalities but that doesn't matter. I love my family and I am grateful for the love they give me. We will have to do another over nighter and this time with Amy and Pete along. And promise this time I won't make you run. Love you Ashley and Kate, thanks for being on my team!
