Back to blogging as part of the 31 for 21 Blog Challenge. Back home from a whirlwind trip to Walt Disney World. And back to racing! The Wine & Dine Half Marathon was my first race since I did the Walt Disney World Half Marathon back in January while 27 weeks pregnant. It is so gratifying to be able to once again refer to myself as “Marathon Andi” and have it be literal, not figurative.
I am completely and totally exhausted today, but I am SO glad that I went. I left Mr. Andi and the kids at home and went to stay with my wonderful friend Katie and her parents. While there, I met up with lots of friends from around the country, got sucked into signing up for Foursquare (like I need another time-sink social media activity), accompanied Katie on her very first rides on Space Mountain and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, paced a new friend to a PR in the half marathon, and pretty much spent the whole weekend laughing. It was too short and too long at the same time – too short because I didn’t have nearly enough time to see who I wanted to see and do what I wanted to do, but too long because I missed my family.
I didn’t have a blog post yesterday – no chance to get on the computer or iPad and I just didn’t want to have to send a post from my phone. I could have taken a photo and posted it, but since I was away from home I couldn’t take pictures of the kiddos (and who wants to see photos of me at Disney’s Hollywood Studios?) I promise to throw in an extra post sometime this week, however, to make up for it. Spending over 14 hours in the car by myself this weekend gave me ample opportunity to think about things I’d like to blog.
