Oh, Say Can You See

Ten years ago today I was driving down Fairmount Avenue on my way to work when I heard {the news}.

We were all sent home and I remember being glued to the TV, in disbelief, for hours and days following.

I visited Ground Zero about 10 months after {that day}.

There was silence…nobody could find any words.

Since September 11, 2001, I have never worn or regarded the stars and stripes with more pride.

I cannot listen to or sing the National Anthem, Proud To Be An American, America The Beautiful or You’re A Grand Old Flag without tears streaming down my face.

I couldn’t have been more proud while listening to the darling first graders sing {Proud To Be An American} on Friday morning for Patriot’s Day…..waving their handmade construction paper flags.

I can’t wait to take my children to Ground Zero someday ~ tears will be streaming just like that beautiful fountain.

We’ll NEVER forget.

Red, White & Blue.



I’m bad at drinking water on a daily basis.

When I run or workout, I drink LOTS.

But the “8 glasses a day”…..not so good at it.

I need to hydrate and carb load the next couple days….that’s what the seasoned runners do. 😉

I tried this little pre-race concoction and it’s delish:

Cranberry Pomegranate Emergen-C


Vitamin Water ZERO Squeezed {lemonade}


Cold fighting, energy boosting, nutrient rich beverage!

Now to get the regular H2O stuff in my body, too!

On another note, I have a pain in the neck. Must’ve tweaked it last night in my sleep. I have to do the whole “turn your entire body” thing when I drive because my neck is so stiff! Ugh….heating pad where are you?

Could be worse.

T-minus 2 days and counting!

DEEP breaths.
