I've been waiting and waiting for summer to come, I just can't wait to put on my summer dresses and swim suits, tank tops and skirts without tights, but mom says the weather has to get better before I can wear these things around. It's been cold here in Bend the past couple of weeks, but no worries... I've been rocking my leg-warmers all over town the past 4 days in a row. I think they're a great accessory to any outfit....and BONUS...they keep my legs warm!

A big Thank You to my auntie Margie for such a practical and long-lasting baby gift!
Well, not sure if anyone's noticed...but I haven't mentioned my marathon training since I wrote about it here. The reason being because I haven't been running at all...and have been in total denial that I'd still be able to pull 26.2 miles out of my butt in June. You see, about a month and a half ago, I was on a 10 mile training run and rolled my ankle, no big deal, and kept running. Then the next day my ankle was feeling better but I could hardly put any weight on the opposite heel. Instead of going to the doctor I decided to ignore the stabbing pain pulsating throughout my foot, pop a bunch of Advil, and continue my training...NOT a good idea. After about a week of extremely painful runs, I decided I had better get it checked out because I now couldn't put any pressure on it at all. I would literally have to crawl out of bed and to the couch in the morning until the Advil kicked in.
So...I went to see an orthopedic doctor and it turns out...I had a Calcaneus fracture. I guess when I twisted my ankle on my long run I changed my gait and somehow fractured the bone in my good foot. Awesome. Doctor's orders were to stay off my foot for six weeks. Yes, SIX weeks. So...I obeyed, stopped running altogether and have been riding my stationary bike and lifting to keep in shape, all the while thinking I would have time to get back and train for the marathon in June...Rrrriiiiight. Keep dreaming Megs.
I've been on two runs since I was given the okay to start back up again...and I'm nowhere near marathon shape. I guess this means I won't be running 26.2 miles in June. I guess my only consolation is that instead of running the full in June, I'll be running the half with this girl and we've decided to run the San Francisco in October instead...as long as I don't go and hurt myself again (though it would be a really good excuse if I get sick of training)....
As you can tell from my lack of posts this week, we've been pretty busy here at the Blyth household. Unfortunately for me (and Ava) school was cancelled for the rest of the school year. Ava's teacher had her baby early...so I don't have my relaxing Tuesday and Thursday mornings without the Diva Princess. I knew this was coming this summer, but having it happen in May gives me a headache. No offense Ava, but it was really nice to have some quiet time alone with Miles to go to the store, etc. I think we'll have to find some summer camps for you :)
After 25 days of below average temps here in Bend, I'm happy to announce that the sun has finally made an appearance! I'm so excited to get outside and enjoy the weekend. SUN...Finally! There is a God!
