Road Trip for One+ Last Day of TSL


MY OH MY, life is spinning 100 mph and I just am going right along with it!! There is so much going on in my life right now that I am already planning one day next week to REST!!!

I ran an easy 3 miles this morning with fast Jill at 5:45am which gave me plenty of time to pack and get some emails caught up on before I take off for the weekend.

I started with a power Breakfast, PURPLE monster

I love how this bag has a special compartment for your running shoes, that way they don’t get your clothes all dirty or smelly!

The Race Gear

I have my race outfit picked out, but I might get a couple things at the expo. I am always worried about what I wear on race day, I want no chafing and now hassle!! I tend to stick with what works.

    Also, I love bags that have the shoe compartment. We had those type of bags in high school when I played basketball.

    Love the pic of the boys!!

    Enjoy San Diego and have a safe trip!
