july runfessions: time to have some fun

July Runfessions are here! It’s the last Friday of the month, so let’s join up with Marcia’s Healthy Slice and give it a go.


I runfess….

That I have been a total slacker this week. I’ve experienced writer’s block, lack of inspiration and a nasty case of procrastination. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I get thrown for a bit of a loop and face feelings . I need to just woman up and get it together. Immediately.

That little man starting middle school is a little bit harder than I thought it would be. He’s spending some time in a program the school offers, learning about regulations and expectations. I know he can do it. I’m pretty sure I can do it. It’s daunting, nonetheless. On the plus side, I’ll be making an encore performance as Board Member in a PTO, after I was pretty sure I had retired, but it’s a great way to stay involved and keep an eye on things without being too suffocating.

I am so ready for the weekend. We are celebrating Meghan’s birthday and I can’t wait. She is truly one of the most amazing people and I am so glad running brought us together. It promises to be an epic weekend, and I hope you’ll follow along with our adventures on social media.

This humidity has got me down. It’s so hard to dig up motivation to leave the house, let alone run. After Atlanta, I found myself unable to keep up with double workouts and some days struggled to maintain even one. Ugh. I’ve felt the difference in my body and my personal outlook, so even if I drag myself out for a walk, I’m making it happen. Oh, and I’m signing the family up for the IOA/Jaguars Stadium Challenge. We’ve done it before as a family and little man said he wanted to give it another go.

That summer is ending SO FAST. We had to sit down with the calendar last night to make sure we could squeeze in all our last-minute plans. As an aside, little man is most excited about “back to school shopping”, which cracks me up. I am not a shopper at all, so I have no idea where he gets it from.

We have plans for two water parks, a beach day and a day at one of the gorgeous Florida springs before the first day of school. I am hopeful the weather cooperates and we can get it all in.

And those are my July runfessions. Not so bad, and it definitely feels good to have all that out in the universe, so I can have some fun this weekend!

We are also joining in with Fridays with Fairytales and Fitness, so check out that link up and share your week in fitness!

    Oh wow middle school already?! That’s so exciting but yeah, milestones like those really remind us of the passage of time. It all flies so fast. All the best with your PTO duties. That is a great way to keep a discreet eye on your little man!

      Yes! Can you believe it? I can’t!

      I really wanted a break, but the whole previous board exited stage left (their kids moved on to middle school), so I got roped right back in. It will be a good thing.

      the kids report back to school on 8/12. In a way, it feels like we had no summer. PTO should be fine. Some work I wasn’t anticipating, but I can squeeze it in somewhere.

  3. I remember my days of living in TX. It’s a reverse cabin fever (up here, we go through it when we’re stuck inside all winter long).

    I hope you have good weather for your plans!

      It’s funny how that works. When my mom first moved here from NJ, I remember her looking at me funny when I said “it’s too hot to go to the pool” on a summer day. Now, I think she gets it.

    I’d love to do a 5K at Giants Stadium. Have done Yankees, but never NFL.
    Sounds like you’re packing a lot into summer

  5. This summer sure is flying by! Your little guy will do just fine in middle school. They all do! It is hard to watch them grow up so fast and become more independent but that that just means you are doing your job as parents.

      I know, but he’s still my babyyyyyy! He’s so freaking independent as it is. I wish he needed me more sometimes, but he’s doing awesome at handling everything.

  6. Agreed summer is really zipping by… it’s a bummer to have it so dark (already) at 5:00 a.m…..

  7. Starting middle school is definitely a big milestone! It’s so hard to watch them grow up so fast, isn’t it?!

    Summer is just flying by – sounds like you’ve got some fun plans to take advantage of these last few weeks! Enjoy!

  8. Coco says:

    I admire your dedication to staying involved with the school. Middle school regulations? Jeesh! Life is so complicated these days.
    Your end of summer plans sound great.

  9. Wendy says:

    Your son will do fine in middle school. It’s amazing how well the schools prepare the 6th graders for the changes to come! I think it’s great to be involved–you can see what’s going on and he sees you being a part of the school.

    Enjoy the rest of summer!

  10. Farrah says:

    Best of luck to your son in middle school!

    It’s definitely been super humid lately! Water parks and beaches sound like the way to go!

  11. Aw, best of luck to the little guy in middle school! He’ll do great. And good luck to you with PTO duties 🙂

  12. Angela says:

    I hear you, summer has flown by, can’t believe it is almost August! Good luck to your little man in middle school, he will do GREAT!!!

  13. Wow, it goes so fast doesn’t it. Best of luck in middle school.
