Good morning!

I'm posting in the morning, on a Sunday. If you're reading this at another time, I apologize, and say, "Good Day". :)
Running has been going well. I have ran 5 of the last 7 days, including 8 miles yesterday. 8 is the longest I've ran in a while and I was a bit nervous. I attended the marathoners in training group yesterday, like I did a few summers ago. It was nice to see some familiar faces, even if I was in a slower pace group this year. I thought I'd listen to by body a bit better this year, so I'm not sidelined by injury like last year. I went slower, and felt pretty good! I'm a bit stiff in the calves, and knees today, but not in any pain.
I got all the housecleaning done yesterday, so today's schedule includes laundry, school plans for the last 7 days of the school year, grading a few papers, and scrapbooking! :) I went to someone's house Friday night and got a few pages done, but not as many as I'd have liked. Maybe it was all the snacking and visiting I did instead? :)
I'm not doing a lot of reading right now, due to all the school work that I've been doing, planning and grading. :)But I have snuck in a few pages of the Food Guide for Marathoners and the Women's Guide to Running. So far, there hasn't been any new information, but I'm not very far into it. I heard someone talking as we ran about this book and thought I would like to read it: 4 months to a 4 hour marathon, since my goal this year is to break 4 hours...
The family is doing great. Both daughters are ready to be on summer vacation, but we all still have 7 more days! :)
I saw this post and thought about "my flower petals". What would you put on your petals??
I hope you have a wonderful week, full of blessings!! :)
