In case you're wondering, I've been running like crazy (and not necessarily in just my running shoes).
Our youngest will be graduating from high school in a couple weeks, so there's been a lot of stuff that's kept me on to go this past week. It's all good, though. After all, life would would be pretty dull if I just sat around, painting my toe nails and eating bonbons.
Here's the latest:
On Monday, I did my #nevermissaMonday run during the lunch hour. Yes, I had ample sunshine. Yes, the temps were warm (and humid). And, yes, I was in absolute heaven. I realize I'm kind of on my own island with my love of warm weather. Those mid-70F temps did feel kind of balmy, but there was a decent breeze, so those four miles (my longest Monday run in a long time) went well.

Saturday = Market to Market Relay!
Our morning began with a 4:00 a.m.meet-up at our company's parking lot, a 2-1/2 hour drive to the relay's starting place (for our team's 7:15 wave start), and ending around 5:45 p.m. as we crossed the finish line. The big thing was the forecasted rain (and subsequent day-long thunderstorms) was a total no-show! Stay tuned, the race recap will be posted soon!

Sunday called for a major day of rest (and substantial graduation prep work). I got out for a short walk, sporting the relay's event shirt...just because. Although my body was still pretty tired from the long day of relay activity, as well as the busy week of non-running action, I did venture out for an easy 3-mile run late in the afternoon.

In case you missed them, there were only two posts last week. I knew I'd be out of commission all day Saturday, so I elected to take a pass on my usual Friday post. Besides, for the next couple of weeks, my priority is our daughter's graduation. Again, life goes on and all is well.
In other news:
Did you catch my #FridayFashionFlair post (on Instagram)? I try to be pretty selective on trendy fashion trends...but, I have kind of fallen victim to the cold shoulder craze. What do you think? There's quite a variety...some are dressy, many are casual, the cut can show a lot of shoulder or be very modest. Do you own any? Yay or no way?

Our dog Max....he certainly has a love for the simple things in life. A car ride with the breeze blowing against his face. Total bliss!
