The last few weeks of summer were really tough. But school has started and my kids have some direction and purpose and we're finding our equilibrium once again.
Each year I bake "First Day" cake on the first day of school. At 15 and almost 13, have my sons outgrown this tradition? I don't think so!

Here's me in my high school cheerleading uniform. As part of this week's challenge at dailymile, you had to do a workout wearing a costume. The other day, I ran the last 1/2 mile of a 10 mile run wearing this uniform from 30 years ago. The skirt is SOOOOOO tight -- I can't believe that in high school I felt fat!
My new Asics -- I'm in love!
Even Gumby and Pokey love my new shoes!
Running has been really fun for me over the last few weeks. Last week I ran my age in miles -- FORTY SEVEN MILES in one week! Today I tried running trails -- shockingly hard! I did 5 miles, 2 on the roads, and 3 on the trails, and I am going to feel it tomorrow. This makes me nervous, as I'm doing a TEN MILE trail race on Labor Day, and a trail half marathon just a few weeks after that. Wish me luck...
