Not a lot to talk about today...but I wanted to share two links..

I think I'm going to add her to my list of people with whom I'd like to run.  Can you imagine the conversation!?

Layla and I went to my parents on Monday so that I could do a 7 mile run with Natasha (and mom could keep Layla).  On the way over to mom and dad's, I noticed Layla had her little foot slung over the side of her car seat with her pant leg hiked up.  For some reason, it struck me as funny...SO I looked back at her and stated the obvious:

Mommy:  Look at you.  Your pant leg is all hiked up.  Ha ha ha ha!
Layla:  I know.  (NOTE:  the tone in her voice was HILARIOUS--completely matter-of-fact--not even a little TINY smirk on her face).
Mommy:  What??
Layla:  I know.

Needless to stay, I spit coffee out all over the place and laughed uncontrollably while Layla continued to chant, "I know, I know, I know."  She said the same thing that afternoon when I told her that mommy needed to peel the apple before she ate it because she may choke..."I know, I know."  Its very odd that she uses that phrase correctly.  She seems like such a big kid when she says it.

Dad took some pictures of Layla on Monday and they turned out SO sweet (for those of you keeping number two).  

Tonight dad and I will face our last hill repeat session!  I am so excited.  I'm excited about seeing progress and I'm excited to move on to speed work at the track :-)

Awesome slide show!

Also, ROFL: we would now like to invite Democratic veep nominee Joe Biden to give birth to eight children, name one "Fartlek," and run an ultra. Then we'll write about him. hahaHA!

First of all...I love Michelle's comment. I think we could all go on and on about the sexual discrimination against's truly pathetic. I can't wait to hear her speech tonight.

Lindsey...those pictures are precious. How can you not fall in love with that innocent smile? Thanks for sharing. :)

I hope your hills went well tonight. I look forward to hearing from you about the date of our next running date.

10 minutes and counting to the Palin speech...(the speech aftermath may deserve a blog of its own)

Lindsey- Layla is so beautifl and the pictures are amazing.

I absolutely love reading your blogs. They all make me feel like I am sitting right beside you talking. You are such an inspiration.

Take care!

Those pictures are great! It looks like Layla had a great time, which I'm sure she did... Can't believe how fast she's growing up. I just saw her last week and all, but a lot of times I can't help but think... "It seems like yesterday when Neil called me while I was at work at like 6am and told me the news". Time flies...
