  1. Do you have a link for waving all tests? I’m in NC as well. I would be surprised if we go back as well. As a side note I find it interesting that the first state to say they’re out for the year has a woman governor. I feel as a woman you know parents want to know and plan as soon as possible. I have a high school senior and a college senior. I don’t expect to see either of them have a graduation ceremony. My college senior is very worried about post graduation. She was having a good number of job interviews but as of the past week and a half everything has dried up. She was commenting about how this is probably as bad as graduating during the Great Recession. I told her I think this is harder. I don’t ever remember living through such uncertainty.
  2. I get that. We’re a large family as well. Fortunately 2 are adults now and on there own. Are any of your kids on the older side so they can shop as well? It’s a way to get around limits ( not to horde) to get what you need.
  3. Is the airport closing international flights or all flights?
  4. I ran my 15k this morning and it was good. I ran the same course in September and beat my September time by 9 minutes. I came in second in my age group. This week I’ll take tomorrow as a rest day run Tuesday 5, Thursday 3, Friday 5, and a 12-13 mile trail run Saturday, yoga and strength Tuesday and Thursday, and barre on Wednesday. I’m tracking my food this month as part of a running group challenge. It’s always helpful to track every now and then. Makes me see where I am short. I’m realizing I need to add more protein.
  5. The group I ran with yesterday basically started that way. Four years ago the woman who founded the group started a Facebook page for runners in the area. Since then it’s grown to over 400 people
  6. I think it depends on what you want to track. I have a Garmin forerunner 35 that I love for walking running and aerobic activities. Pairing it with the app I can track a lot of information.
  7. I went to the group trail run yesterday and it was fun. It was also pouring so we only did 4 on the trail. The ladies were nice and welcoming and one ran my pace so we chatted some while running. One of my personal goals for the year is to make more irl friends. Since I didn’t get my long run in yesterday I’m going to try and get that in today. This week I’ll run 5 on Monday and 6 on Tuesday, strength train and yoga Tuesday, barre on Wednesday, yoga Thursday and then nothing until race day Sunday. Have a good week ladies
  8. If you have a local shop loose leaf chamomile blends that contain the whole dried flowers would be my choice followed by mint. My favorite bagged tea is Celestial Seasons Candy Cane Lane decaf green tea with peppermint and a hint of vanilla. I would prefer a ceramic mug for the cozy factor. I drink my hot beverages fast enough that cooling down isn’t a factor.
  9. I love board games ❤️❤️ I gave Settlers of Catan to my sister and brother’s families. As a family we received Sushi Go Party edition Kingdomino Azul I chose games that my 7yo could play since we were short on games for the younger crowd. We all enjoy the new games and they are short enough for my 7yo. Now that she’s ready to join the fold we can go back to a regular family game night.
  10. I haven’t posted in a while but I’ve kept up my exercise routine pretty well over the holidays. My yearly goals include running more races and joining a regular group run. To that end I have a 15k next Sunday and a half marathon in March. I’m still debating about adding a trail half marathon in Feb. I’ve been trying out a group run at a running store on Thursday evenings. The group is generally pretty fast. There’s one lady slower than myself other than that everyone is much faster. The group is nice. I may just use that as my speed day. Today I’m checking out another group for a long trail run. We’ll see. Over the holiday season I let my yoga practice slip. I got to class this week and was surprised at how tight I am. I’ve got to be sure to get there twice a week. I’m also working my way through the book Strong. This week I bought new running shoes and a pair of trail running shoes. I’m excited to try the new trail runners today I’ve just been using my regular running shoes on the trails.
  11. I ran my half yesterday 2:30:13. I am super pleased. I pushed myself by running with the 2:30 pacer and cut 7 minutes off my fastest training run on a course that is more difficult than where I train. I am sore today. Hopefully I can get to yoga tomorrow and Wednesday and back to easy running Thursday.
  12. I have my half marathon this Sunday. I feel ready. This is my taper week so it much going on. A few runs earlier this week. Now resting, drinking plenty of water and eating good food. I haven’t figured out my next race goal. My husband mentioned going away and doing a half marathon in March. That would be my first choice but he’d have to commit and right now that’s the hold up. If we did that I may try a trail half in February. The other choice is a local full marathon in March. That would be cool too but there’s a 6 1/2 hour cut off. I’m not confident I can make the cut off but I won’t know until I’m well into training and doing the 20 mile long runs.
  13. I ran my 15k last weekend. It was sooooo hot (90’s) and humid. I averaged a 11:44 pace and ran the whole way so I was pleased (I’m a sloooow runner). I’ve been sticking to my workout schedule. I have my long run today 13-14 miles. The heat has finally broke so I don’t need to be out there by 5:00. This week 5, 3, 7, 3, and 13 miles for runs, 2 sessions of weight training, and probably no yoga. I’m volunteering at my daughter’s school book sale which conflicts with the classes I usually take. I joined a local running club. I’ve just got to get up the courage to post on the Facebook page to see if any other slow runners going to the group runs.
  14. I got in all of my workouts the past 2 weeks 5 runs, strength training and yoga. I’m struggling getting my long run over 13 miles. I want to get to 14 but have had terrible cramping in my legs miles 12-13. The first week I thought I wasn’t hydrated enough. I’d had a busy afternoon the day before so this week I was super conscious of drinking water Friday. No luck there. This week I ‘m going to concentrate on consuming more foods with potassium and magnesium. We’ll see how that goes. This week I want to get in 3 runs 5, 3, and 7, 1 session of strength training, 1 elliptical and yoga. I have a 15k race next Sunday.
  15. Assuming they are catholic, they committed to raising their children catholic when they got married in the church. Therefore they are obligated to model a catholic life. Mass attendance is required.
