Lazy Liz...That's My New Name!

I started running again this past week. My back hurt when I was standing around or walking, but it was pretty pain-free when I ran. Go figure. It was only short 30 minute runs, here and there and then I did an hour run yesterday. I hit the wall at mile 6. Not bad considering that I took no Shot Bloks with me, it was already 80 degrees at 7 am, and I only ate a half a piece of toast with Nutella on it before the run. I will probably go run here in a few minutes. It is not that I am training again, I am just trying to burn off some of the cookies and Dr. Pepper I have been indulging in over the past two weeks.

I have become "Swim Team Mom" the past few weeks. Not only am I shuttling Bud to two different workouts, but I have been volunteering at the weekend swim meets. I have done parking duty, computer room runner, and concessions. Last week, the neighborhood team took a loss against a team that just had more older girls than we did. They racked up the points pretty fast. This past weekend, we won by a landslide. It is a lot of hot work, but it is better to be moving around than just sitting around in the heat.
Bud had done VERY WELL and so far has qualified for the elite meet the first weekend of July in all of his individual events. The relays are hit and miss. Some of the other kids on his relay teams are not as fast as he is so it has been close for a first or second place finish. As you can see from the photo below, there is no one around him when he swims. No one. He is usually so far ahead it is silly.
We have another meet again this weekend and hopefully it will not be 105 degrees at the meet like it was here in H-Town yesterday. After that, I have a covert operation in the works that is right up there with a SEAL Team 6 operation. I can't say much more or I would have to start killing people to silence them. So your best bet is to stay tuned and see what happens.

Later Gators!

OMG I hope I already know what your covert op is. I've been wondering.

Yay for Bud! That is so awesome that you have a great swimmer in the family!

I can't wait to hear about your covert op!

Oh yeah, one more thing. I love the pic of the puppy!
