Just Ducky...

...officially! Rubber Ducky, actually!! Yes, I did it! Signed myself up for Half Marathon #3. So excited to continue training and so glad to be doing another race with my dear friend and training partner, Lisa. What's so exciting about this one is: we've only lost 5 kms in our mileage since the last half we did and it's not until October!

For my first half I had to begin training at KM...uh....zero!! Right from scratch! My second half was 6 months later and I had taken a pretty severe break from running, and didn't start training until January, so we started at 10kms. This time...we've switched up our runs between 15 and 16kms! We only have to get to 21! 5kms to add in more than 8 weeks! And...the course is completly flat! Added bonus! I'm just hoping we're not going to be like rubber duckies come race day - did they possibly search out the rainy-est weekend to host this run?? Why rubber duckie?? No matter...I'm just glad for another goal to strive toward!

In other news: She's back behind bars!! I may have posted a tad too eagerly about Avery's switch into a "big girl" bed. She may have gotten out of bed 6 times before she went for her nap and she may have walked into Karys' room and woken her up before 6 am the next morning! Jim may have set up her crib before he headed to work just so that she would be our perfect-two-naps-a-day-sleeper again! And she may just be completely obsessed with her bars! She also may never poop on a potty again! We've discovered that this little princess has a overly sensitive sniffer and has actually tossed her animal crackers on two occasions! Now, when the time is obviously upon her, and I ask if she has to go potty, she simply replies "NO...NOT!!" as she swiftly runs in the opposite direction! So...I may be sitting here at this this very moment and eating my fair share of humble pie, but I may also be relishing in the fact that my baby isn't as much of a "big girl" and she thinks she is!

That's about it for now...I'm getting back in my right mental space from a week with a strange-every-night-and-sometimes-during-the-day-fever?! Glad to be rid of it...wondering where it came from...but not going to lose sleep over it! On to brighter and better days...
