Hello July!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you we are finally slipping into summer mode around the RWA household. Both boys have started their camps, dinners on the deck have commenced, the grill is in steady use, and in general the pace of things has s-lo-w-e-d down. Thank goodness 🙂

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m loving the fact that my oldest, who’s away again at overnight camp, decided to send his first letter home to his younger brother! Just made my heart smile!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that that, while the humidity has been oppresive, summer running is off to a good start. After some consultation with my friend Tina, I signed on to train with RunnersConnect. I’ve been working with them since the begining of June and so far have really been enjoying both the community and the coaching.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that my husband, youngest son and I will all be running the Finish at the 50 at Gillette Stadium tomorrow – they will be running the 5K (my son’s first!), while I’m doing the 10K. With the expected heat, I’ll be treating this as a training run. The race is always fun and there’s a great fireworks display afterwards.


So what would you tell me over coffee?  What have you got planned for this long weekend?



  1. I would tell you I’m super pumped for a nice dinner date night with my hubby and friends tonight!!! I’m counting down the hours!

  2. I was wondering about Runners Connect. I’m looking forward to following your progress! Tina is awesome. I’ve cited a few of their articles on the blog and she always follows up when I do that.

  3. I used to love it when my kids would actually send a real letter home. Glad to hear your summer is off to a great start. The humidity does take some getting used to doesn’t it?

  4. Aw, how sweet that your son sent a letter to his brother — do they still send real letters from camp? Have fun at the race tomorrow. I love that your husband and son will be running too.

  5. How great your son is running his first 5k! I know you’ll be so proud. I just heard about Runners Connect for the first time last week. I’m interested to hear what you think. Keep us posted.

    • I can’t wait for him to cross that finish line. Once my oldest ran his first he was hooked and now runs on his school’s cross country team. Hopefully, my youngest will get the bug too!

  6. Ahh, dinners on the deck are the best!
    Summer runs are definitely an adjustment. God luck on your race–it sounds like you have a good game plan!

  7. How wonderful to run as a family!

    And very sweet of your son to send his brother a letter. I don’t think I ever got letters from my siblings — ever!
