There wasn’t a whole lot of organized exercise going on this week; it was a busy week of travel. Flying across the country to get home, one day at home, driving down to move my parents into their new home.
Although I didn’t do much (if any) yoga or or strength training, and always planned to take the week off of running after my half (hopefully a recap coming soon!), there was a lot of moving from simply packing, unpacking, going up and down the stairs in my parents home, moving in some furnirture they decided they still wanted after the official move 9in the cold, pouring rain, no less) — most days I actually got in a reasonable amount of steps.
But I missed my normal exercise!
So because I’ll be traveling a lot in the next few months, but “wrapped” up with family business too, follow me on Instagram to find out what shenanigans I’m up to. I’m wrapping it up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly @ Hohoruns and Tricia @ Misssipppiddlin because you just never know who you might inspire.

Although it’s beautiful around my parents’ new home, it’s also hilly, it was cold, and it was wet from all the rain we’d had Friday and Saturday. And my mom got up at 2:30 in the morning because she couldn’t sleep, and went to work organizing the kitchen, waking up both me and my Dad. So I didn’t run in the morning.
I had brought along running clothes, just in case. When I got home, though, I spent a half hour saying hi to the furkids and Mr. Judy (not necessarily in that order) and then hit the road. In a jacket and capris. It actually wasn’t that cold, but I knew I’d be running into the sunset and it would get chilly (we’re getting down into the 30s at night now); so while I was warm to start, I was comfortable at the end.
I just needed to run. I’m sure you’re familiar with that feeling!
Favorites of the week
Coming home! Seriously, I’ve basically been gone two weeks. Most of it fun, but almost a week of it was family visiting (MIL, SIL, my parents).
Moving my parents wasn’t as stressful as I feared — even my mom admitted it wasn’t as hard as she feared — which is not to say it was easy, either. My Dad seemed happy until we brought up finances, which totally stresses him out now. My Mom is not happy, but no one expected her to be, but she didn’t seem as unhappy as she was when she actually agreed to make the move.
Of course now they are on their own. I will be back in a couple of weeks, and while my sister lives there, she will be working a lot from now until the end of the year, and she really needs a break, too.
And that’s a wrap
Let’s get the conversation started:
Tell me something great about your week!
How cold is it getting at night where you live?
Who’s going to NYCMarathon? I will be in the city that weekend! I’d love to meet up with you.
