We are right in the middle of the second of three weeks of family camp. I'm getting pretty tired. Last night I thought I was getting sick. All of my extremities felt like Jell-o and I was just kind of waiting to throw up all evening. I feel better this morning, after having slept for 11 hours last night!

I skipped my long 14 mile run this morning. I'm really sad about it. I haven't really missed a run since January. But I'm getting sick, my back has been killing me, my heels are starting to hurt, and my knees have been giving me problems while I'm running, so with 9 weeks to go in my marathon training, I think I'm going to take a few days off to rest up my body, do some yoga and some strength training, and get ready for the home-stretch. I hope this is a good, wise runner's move. I'll celebrate by running the lake on Sunday with our kitchen triathlon team! With the exception of Bjorn, I expect that we'll probably finish terribly. Melissa is going for her first swim this summer today, so...

The Stroms have been with us for the past few days and that has been so fun. Although I don't get to see them all that often, it's fun to come home to kids on the swings and such.

And we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Mei Lynn! We have been reading so much about her and cannot wait to meet the newest Rill! I even purchased some new Hairwear in celebration!

We're praying for a strong finish to the summer and looking forward to some rest soon!

  1. Hooray! I am jealous that you are going to get to spend a whole week with Mei Lynn before I get to. Take good care of them, and thanks for the hairwear purchase!
