i need some help!

my boys play hockey.  they love it.  they live for it.  it works because the local rink is about 8 blocks away.  :)  imagine the horror when we found out our local skate rink changed hands and isn't doing a fall hockey session.  horror!  it was bad. 

what are the boys going to do while we wait for the winter session?  have are three alternatives. 

1) inline hockey at a different rink [con: it takes an hour during rush hour traffic to get there three times a week]
2) ice hockey [con: it is a couple thousand per boy, but goes until april so we don't have to worry about fall and spring sessions]
3) football [con: most leagues started in july so the boys will have missed team formation, bonding and over a dozen practices]

i honestly can't figure out which is the biggest con; the travel, the money or being the lowest priority on the team.  gah!  i need help.  parents, which option would you choose for your kids?

15 miles

a friend of mine is paying herself a dollar for every mile she completes.  i think that is a brilliant idea!  so far this month, i have logged 15 miles walking with my friends michelle and amy.

how many miles have you performed?

i haven't been running

i am starting to miss running a little bit, but i think i needed a break.  i also decided not to do the georgetown to idaho springs half marathon this weekend.

maybe it's the heat.  maybe it's pure laziness.  i don't know.

what i do know is that i have been walking instead which i have really enjoyed.  it makes me feel strong.  call me crazy but i think i am going to head back into running stronger than before.

do you take breaks from running?  how long do they usually last?

dear Lord,
be with me this week.  prepare my body, my mind and my heart for what is to come.  i want to be your vessel.  pour blessings into me so i can be a blessing to those who encounter me.  make my thoughts and words sweet in case i need to eat them.  forgive me when i am not kind.  i ask for your grace and mercy for my mistakes.
