Think Egypt and Japan this week!

Hi Everyone-

I hope you had a great 4th of July!  It was so nice that the Fourth landed on a Friday and everyone got a long weekend with their families!  We did something new this year, we ran the 5k/10k Race in Barrington and then went to the parade in downtown Barrington.  It was so fun!    The kids made t-shirts and most of them ran the 5k and a few of us managed to crank out the 10k.  The run is kind of hilly, not that we aren’t used to those hills in Cary, but it was a GORGEOUS day and the houses were amazing to drool over as we ran by!


We rounded out the day with some swimming and a BBQ at a friend’s.  Friends of ours have a Sport Court in their backyard so there was a Pickle Ball Tourney.  GAME ON!!!  (not sure if you know this, but I am kind of competitive…a trait I definitely inherited from my father and have passed on to a few of my own children :))  Prior to this tournament I had been throwing down some “smack” talk….well….that “smack” only got me so far, or should I say, got me nowhere.  My partner and I lost in both divisions(the children/adult division and adult/adult division)!!  Don’t worry…there will be more tourneys this summer….I WILL BE BACK!!

We also had 9 baseball games this weekend which I am sure a lot of people think is CRAZY, but I love it.  Yes, it’s a lot, but I honestly don’t know what I am going to do when I don’t have anymore to go to.  When we do have a night off I look around the house and think…”Uh-oh…now I have to cook dinner!”


Ha-so Egypt and Japan…just trying to keep you guys on your toes…hints for this week’s workout.  Not sure if anyone is using the workouts I am posting…let me know if you are and I will keep posting.

Dirty Girl Run….I found some more photos that I NEEDED to share…
