I'm kinda liking this whole random list thing lately, so I'm doing it again.  Don't hate me please, it's just that I'm all over the place and my writing is reflecting that a bit.  I'll come back down to earth soon, I promise!

Today was supposed to be FoodDay Friday, and I had a seriously awesome recipe ready.  Then I realized that I didn't take any friggin photos last time we ate it.  I'm super smart like that.  But, that means that we'll eat it again next week, so I'm not too sad.

I realized late last night that I didn't ONCE think about drinking a soda yesterday!  Today, I didn't even finish my morning espresso protein shake.  I'm slowly drinking an iced coffee with almond milk now, but it's taking a while.  I'm still a bit scatterbrained, but I think the caffeine addiction is actually on it's way out!  I'm very excited about this.

Track and Field is starting today!  This is the first Olympics ever that this has been super exciting for me.  Before I loved running, I couldn't see the point in watching others do it.  Now I think it's fantastic!

The world has made me sad this week.  There's been so much hate blasting on the tv's and social media from EVERY side of issues that shouldn't even be issues in this day and age, and it's pitiful to see so many angry, spiteful people.  But then I witness moments like this, and I get happy again:
Sweet happy friends!
My running has felt good lately.  Really really good.  I have been working on my form, and I think it's paying off.  So is all the extra training I'm doing ie pilates, yoga, HIIT.  My muscles are becoming more defined, and it makes me feel so strong.  I'm fairly sure that Hubby agrees.

We bought all the kiddo's school supplies today!  It's getting so REAL now, and it's exciting and scary at once.  She's gone from excited to nervous and back to excited now, whereas I've mostly just stayed in the nervous category.  I know she'll do great, but I'll miss my little girl so much during the day.  Her brother will miss her like crazy, too.  But such is life, they get bigger and want to spread their wings, and I need to give them the opportunity.

My Super Spartan is coming up soon, and I'm sooooooo very excited about it!!!!  It's in a few short weeks, and I feel like I'm ready.  I'm more ready than I was for the Tough Mudder, so it can't be too bad.  Plus the kiddo will be running the Spartan Kid's race, and that will be too adorable to handle.  There will be pictures.  Oh yes, there will be pictures.

I feel a bit stagnant on my blog right now.  I have my September challenge coming up and am getting stoked about it, but I feel like I've lost my direction otherwise.  Any ideas?  What would you like to see more/less of?  Do you care?  Or are you just here to keep me from bitching at you for not reading this?  Input is always appreciated!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, get outside, and get sweaty!  Enjoy!!!
