Horrible Blogger!!!

Slacker..........Not really, but I'm sure that's what some are thinking!  I realized that I haven't blogged since the Lincoln 1/2.  I realize that I very nearly died in that experience.  :)  But no excuse for neglecting my fans.  All 5 of you.  So, here's a little recap of what has been happening in this Runaway Ranchwife's life!

T-ball started.  The kids had their first games last night and they were amazing.  And if you ask them, they won.  They kicked that other team right in the ass.  (Even though they do not keep score and no one gets out.)  They don't need to know that though.  They are certain the major leagues will be calling them today!

We had the most amazing week branding.

I usually bail about the 3rd night of camping and claim that mom the kids are tired and need a night in their own beds.  Not so much this year.  I loved camping and spending time with the boys and everyone else that works here.  It was pry the most relaxing "vacation" I&#…

We did it!!!!

Finisher.......Although that was my goal for this whole day I never really thought it would mean as much as it does.  I would love to say that my first half marathon was the greatest day ever and it was wonderful and all that other crap.  But it wasn't.  It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.  No joking.  I was prepared for running 13.1 miles.  I ate everything I was told to and drank more water than I thought possible the week before the race.  I was prepared for the race atmosphere and not starting out too fast.  The first 4-5 miles were the best I've ever felt on a long run.  I was rocking it.  And then I wasn't........  What I wasn't prepared for was the 89% humidity and high 60 degree weather that turned into 70 degree weather at just the wrong time.  I was also a complete jackass and didn't remember that when one is in Lincoln they may want to consider taking an inhaler along for those "just in case" runs that may not go as planned.…
