Just a couple things.
You would think I’ve learned that eating copious amounts dark chocolate the night after a marathon in bed in the hotel right before trying to go to sleep sometimes does a little more harm than good.
You would think I’ve learned that although getting to hug these guys a bazillion times since I’ve been home, there just won’t be a day anytime soon when one of them doesn’t call the other one a “poop face” and that Judah’s idea of a welcome home party for Mama is a round of playing “Go Ape”. (Totally funny card game by the way.)
Wait, I actually did discover just the other day that I could make a gluten free version of the old cinnamon bowl I used to make all the time with a Trader Joe’s brown rice tortilla.
You’d really think by now I would have figured out that doing any kind of workout in the family room is not the best idea.
A really good idea though is alternating sprints and hills to keep a spin class excited on a Thursday night.
Now, you’d really think I would’ve learned to pack quickly and efficiently by now, but no. A big fat NO. It takes me forever and I’m always over packing. Next time I might just pay someone to do it for me.
I only sat there staring at that pile for like 20 minutes before finally getting everything else together. I always have to start with the race outfit though.
It’s been a rough couple of days without much sleep or rest so I’m going to take any chance I can in the next 2 days before the Big Sur International Marathon to do just that. I won’t be around on the blog, but I will be on instagram.
Oh and two things before I go.
Pretty much every blog comment I’ve read here in the past 24 hours has brought tears. I can’t thank you enough for just taking time to read about all these escapades and when you take time out of your busy schedules to leave comments like that, well, you are just AMAZING and AWESOME.

I’ve been living in my compression socks since the marathon and will continue to live in them for at least another week or so to keep that blood flowing and helping my legs recover. I actually think I just packed five pairs for his upcoming weekend. At least I know I have the necessities. Ha ha.
Okay. Bed time.
Hope you’ve had a marvelous week! Bring on the weekend!
