Summer Tunes + Travels

May 30, 2010

Concrete notwithstanding, one of my fave places to run. Insert me--and plenty of RLAM'ers--here.

I’m headed out on Tuesday for the Midwest portion of the RLAM tour: after dropping my kids at my mom’s house outside of Minneapolis (thanks, Muti! love you! don’t call me; I’ll call you!), I’m hitting four spots in Minnesota (Duluth, Wayzata, Edina and Minneapolis), then heading to Milwaukee, and finishing up in Chicago. Can’t wait to run around Lake Calhoun, and on the shores of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee and Chicago. Running + near water + me = Bliss. And really can’t wait to meet all you Midwestern folk out there: come, come! (And meanwhile, SBS will be painting Annapolis RLAM, so join her if you can.)

I’ve been a little manic this weekend, trying to finish two major deadlines; do piles of laundry and pack three of us and not forget Pull-ups or cover-ups; pick out reading + running outfits (having the kind of day where everything feels frumpy. ugh.); squeeze in some family time; tend to Jessie, the dog with the now-fixed ACL who needs her back half to be slinged and transported everywhere she goes. I could go on, but you get the drift.

So I’ve got nothing big to offer in this blog, but it’s a long weekend Monday, so hopefully you’re not parked in front of the computer, as I am. If you are, check out round two of the Mix-Master-Mommas Playlist. Good way  to get your summer motivation on. (My first download in over two months was tonight: Glee’s version of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance. I’m slowly inching into 2010, right?)

Hope your weekends were filled with good runs, great races and smiles all around. (Give us some run/race reports below, if you’re so inclined…sometimes you need a little more than music for inspiration, you know?)

    The beauty of leaving your children with your mom is that if you DO forget pull ups, Mom can take care of it! My Memorial holiday feels a little like yours–with dad home its a free day with childcare so I can work! Look forward to having you in the Twin Cities!!!

    I just keep envisioning summer with my girlies (9 & 10) and getting creative with running…yes, my treadmill will be my new BFF more than likely, but I’m so looking forward to downtime! Haven’t scheduled anything kid-wise and I’m happy about that…just letting them sleep late (code for I can grab a 5K on the TM)…I totally need some new music…thanks Mix-Masters Dimity & SBS!!!! You go, girls!!!

    You MUST be pms-ing. I get the same way about feeling frumpy when aunt flow is on her way. :-/ poor you!
