Monday Motivation with pictures

I only ran ONCE last week.  Yup.  I can proudly admit that my life outside of running got in the way of my training, and I am totally ok with it.


Tuesday-run 4 miles

Wednesday-Fox Valley Marathon planning meeting and packing for our trip

Thursday-my youngest daughters first dance recital and more packing

Friday-We hit the road running for our mini vacation to Michigan.

I packed my running clothes, but in all honesty this weekend was about family.  We don’t get away very often, so when we got the chance we jumped at it like Olympic athletes.  We spent our weekend at the beach, shopping, eating, walking, swimming, and site seeing.  I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, well…maybe if we could get that trip to Italy, LOL.

With that, I leave you with this…hang on to those who support, love, motivate, inspire, and push you to keep moving forward.  I love my family despite our crazy quirks, as I know these 3 people are my cheerleaders, ALWAYS.

At the end of the day, it isn’t about our bank accounts, our pay checks, or our cars or homes.  Life is truly about the relationships, moments, and memories that we make each and every day!

  1. Truer words were never spoken! This is why my blog is subtitled :”everything that’s gold does not glitter.” It is the everyday things and my family that are truly golden to me.


  2. Looks like you had a fabulous time with the family, so fantastic. I especially love the end of this post. We often are in such a hurry to life life and need to stop and think about what REALLY matters ❤
