Another week, another wonderful weekend. Last Saturday I was busy running the Bellingham Bay Half Marathon, and that went so well that I’m doing it again this weekend. Run Like a Girl Marathon is today and my pregnant friend Patrice and I ran while the kiddos and Chris did the Home Depot Kids Project. Below, Jamisen and Lily congratulated me at the end of last weekend’s race. I like to think that watching their parents train for marathons is teaching lessons about hard work, determination and accomplishing goals. I guess we will find out! =)

While the temperatures have been dropping in the Pacific Northwest, the weather was perfect for the Bellingham Bay Half Marathon last weekend.
