Summer Runnin: Things I’m Lovin!

Apparently the first “official day of summer” was June 21st but to be honest it’s been summer around here for well over a month.  The kids have been home from school for several weeks now and the heat is on!  VBS is this week at church and summer is in full swing.

Well, I didn’t mean to go quite so long without posting but life happens and things get busy.  You know how it is!  First of all, HAPPY NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!! I love seeing all the running happiness on my news feed on Facebook.  The last two summers I was injured on National Running Day so it was not nearly as fun.  This morning I met a group of runners at a local gym for a little running event my friend…
