0 - Days until school starts. Yep, today was the first day back. *sigh* Happened way too fast.
5 - Kids I sent off today
3 - Kids in Jr High this year. Alaina, Taylor, and Malia are covering all bases; 7th, 8th, and 9th grades.
753 - Pictures taken by Alaina when she and Malia went to Yellowstone with my parents last weekend. The girl bought herself an iPod touch. She is using it as much as humanly possible. Obviously it makes a good camera. I'd share some pics but she hasn't uploaded them yet. Maybe I'll let her guest post about it. That could be...interesting.
24 - Hours until I am on a plane flying to Seattle for Hood to Coast. Holy cow! It is almost here!! I can't believe it. I am beyond excited to go and meet these amazing ladies and run my little heart out!
0 - Things packed. I should probably do some packing today. Ought to happen around 10 tonight I'm guessing.
3 - ladies that are running on the Nuun teams I have already had the pleasure of meeting. Thanks to Ragnar Wasatch Back, I got to meet Holly and Lisa,
Also, yes those pics were both taken the same day, thus I'm wearing the same thing. I do wash my clothes.
5 - Days I will be gone. The longest time I have been away from my family. EVER. Wow. I'm kind of freaking out about that honestly. Especially with the timing of me leaving as school is starting. I have no doubt that things will run as smoothly as they possibly could, and odds are they will be so busy with the first week back to school and having fun with Dad that they won't even notice I'm gone. But wow, five days! Mom guilt.
4 to 6 - Days that Aaron is on crutches. Oh yay. How fantastic. Which is part of the reason I'm worried about leaving. Best timing ever.
5 (and change) - miles run barefoot that caused Aaron to be on crutches. Not barefoot shoes, completely barefoot. He was 2 1/2 miles into his run last Saturday when he was uncomfortable enough that he just kicked off his shoes and ran without them. Kudos for keeping on. But when it's 85 degrees outside and you're running on blacktop and you haven't exactly eased in to the whole barefoot thing, it's really not a good idea.
20.56 - Miles I ran last Saturday. In to real long run territory again.
46 - Days until St George Marathon. Excited.
6 - weeks into the T25 fitness challenge I'm doing. I'm going to have to repeat this week since I'm going to be gone for most of it and don't see myself getting the workout in today, but it's been awesome. I'm reminded again that clean eating makes a world of difference for me. Dang. At the halfway point the abs were shaping up nicely though, so it's hard to argue.
1.75 - the number of inches off my waist, off my hips, and off each thigh. In 5 wks.
2.5 - the number of inches off my chest. Ouch. Oh well.
11 - Little bags of some of my favorite things for my Team Watermelon teammates.
10 - Watermelon toes, ready to run
10 - Sparkly Watermelon green fingernails
9 - Loads of laundry I have done in the past 24 hours. Sadly that's not too far from normal. Only 3 more to go for today and then I will feel caught up enough that I won't feel as bad about leaving.
837295 - Number of other things I feel like I need to get done before I leave tomorrow. Most of them won't happen. But hey, my bathroom is clean and my laundry is done, so I'm good, right?

And now it's time for me to be functional before I take off!
