Nantucket Vacation


I am back to reality.  I had a great week in Nantucket.  My husband was only able to go with me from Friday through Sunday, as he began a new job and has training in Washington, D.C. He is super important like that!  Seriously, so proud of him, but that is a whole other conversation.

My little sister (who is 26 and not really little) took vacation for the week and entertained us.  This situation was awesome as she was able to babysit Jack when I went for my runs that Mary had written into the plan.  Despite being on an island, it was so very humid and hot, even at 7 AM.  But, these were my views.

Yes, it was heaven.  I just love Nantucket.


We also had lots of social fun.

We enjoyed ourselves to say the least.

And then I came home and faced reality.  First up, 14 miles with the last 6 at an 8:20 pace.  And, it was rainy and humid during the run.  But, I did it somehow.  The only thing I attribute this is the fact that I am a good direction follower.  This is why I have a coach.

Today I went back to work.  I swear, it was almost as hard as going back after maternity leave.  When I went back in April, I hated leaving him because he was so little.  I felt awful because he needed me.  Today I felt horrible leaving because he is so much fun now. I need him now!


  1. Such fantastic photos. JAck is so cute!!! Great job on your run : ) xo
