Morning Run, Afternoon Swim

Do you think this means she wants to go for a run? I took it to mean so. So, run we did. We did our standard 3 mile loop this morning, and even though it was a bit later in the morning than I would have preferred (it just gets so warm), it was a bit overcast and we had a light breeze so it wasn't bad. Highlight of the run was that I scared the bejesus out of an FPL (Florida Power and Light) worker. He and another guy were on the sidewalk doing some sort of assessment, and I thought they saw me coming so I didn't think I'd surprise them when I called out, "Behind you! On your left!" Apparently, I'm like a ninja, though, and my sneak attack completely took them off guard and the one guy literally leaped into the bushes to get out of my way! I guess I'm a fearsome sight barreling down the sidewalk.

This afternoon, Norah and I decided to take advantage of some pool time; I bought her a pool raft, so we had to test it out:
She liked it; although, I think she likes floating freestyle better. Either way, she's a little fish in the pool: Kicking her legs and splashing, and drinking the pool water -- she loves it! And, the extra benefit is that some combination of fresh air and chlorinated water makes her pretty tired, so now she's taking an afternoon snooze...ah, my favorite time of day!

Of course Norah wanted to "go joggie", she is clearly checking the tire pressure!

My little guy has that floatie with fish all over it. He loves putting his face in the water on the mesh.

Rylee loves her "float" too. Though she's at the annoying age where she wants in and out... in and out... in and out...

Sounds like a fantastic and productive day. So jealous that you guys get to spend time in the pool!!

As for the stroller, its nice that she just checks it out. I actually have to HIDE my stroller because Brooke climbs in, sits there, and starts yelling "BYE!" (and we dont even run with it ... if we did, I think I'd be in trouble)

Nicole on the run said...

They should thank your for getting their heart rate up! Very healthy!

I love the pics of your little one. What a cutie!

Jess said...

I found you via D.A.R. and I'm so glad I did!

You have a super cute blog! I'm a runner and am about to start medical school, and preparing to run my first marathon two weeks before class starts (here I come San Francisco)...
