Visit with Grandma and Grandpa

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit and we had fun as usual. It was nice weather and so we were able to go to a new park to check it out. 

Some updates on the girls:
T is gearing up to turn 3 next week and is full of energy and spunk! She is very well versed and lots to talk. She has an excellent vocabulary and is very easy to understand too. She knows all her colors and can count to 20 (except she usually leaves out 16). But she does not know her letters yet. We've been working at it, but she seems to not really have any interest. 

P is starting to read quite a bit, and she loves it. I think it started with memorization of words, but now she is starting to sound out stuff and is starting to get it. She is rocking it out in gymnastics and pretty much can't sit still! She is also into playing games and lately UNO has been her favorite!

Boston Marathon Training updates

So yes, it's been awhile. I'll be updating this week! :) So I've been chugging along at the training for Boston. I've hit my mileage and pacing on every run and have been fueling with homemade sticky bites (out of the SkratchLabs Portable Foods cookbook). I've enjoyed not eating gummy type things on most of my runs. The weather has been fairly cooperative after our last snow. 

This week was the biggest week of the whole plan. Totaled 57 miles this week. I have no more runs longer than 10 miles from here on out. Three weeks to go!!

Thankful for a few runs with this wonderful person:
