One more day. Just one more day until hubby comes home. I can do this. It's the end of summer which means several things... 1) the busiest time of year for my wedding business 2) my kids are getting bored and sick of each other's company 3) lots of busy stuff to for back-to-school 4) my daughter's upcoming birthday 5) training is at full peak for fall marathons. And then my hubby leaves for a work trip. I've tried my best to just breathe and keep it all motion. How single parents do it, I have no clue! Every time my husband has these trips, I'm reminded how much I need him.

Join me for my "birthday run" on Saturday, October 20 in Lake Geneva, WI. I will be running the ZOOMA Great Lakes Half Marathon. Use discount code GLAMB5 at registration to receive $10 off the Half and $5 off the 5k. Plus I will have a special "birthday favor" for all the ladies who register with my code! I'm excited about this race because I've heard many great things about the ZOOMA Women's Series of races. They cater to women (obviously) so the events have a lot of nice touches that are unique to women. Instead of the typical finisher's medal, participants receive a necklace designed by Satya Jewelry. Plus the finish line features wine, spas and shopping! Growing up in Wisconsin, Lake Geneva is known as a vacation destination, and I'm anxious to enjoy its beautiful fall colors.
I finally signed up and started using Instagram. I honestly don't get it yet... how is it different than posting pictures to Facebook/Twitter as normal? Seems like just another
On Sunday, I'm escaping with my BFF (best fitness friend) Kelli to Wisconsin for a day to run the Dirty Girl mud run. It will be a fun day getting down and dirty, but a huge step out of my comfort zone. Obstacles and slippery mud. I plan to take it easy, laugh a lot, and just make sure I don't hurt myself. Are you racing this weekend? Tell me where... Good luck y'all!
