gardenjunkie The dog chewed up his 3rd flip flop....then proceeded to pee on my 5 day old rug. I got stuck in traffic which made me late and my boys were talking my ears off....Who says you can't take an early lunch and run off a bad mood?! 61/ 48 miles for my April goal. 4d

gardenjunkie This actually wasn't my #currentread. I'm actually reading Unbroken and it is AMAZING. However, I've had this book on hold at the library and it's finally available. Chapter 1 done and I'm already amazed. 5d
  •   lorenreeves11 Hello hope you're having a great day! We are going to make it even awesome. Please read my last video and see what were doing Thanks. 5d
  •   aimeedarlingmnt I keep looking at ordering it and haven't yet. 4d
  •   gardenjunkie @aimeedarlingmnt I'll update here after I read it! 4d
  •   bethw3 Did u say Aaron was? John's last year teachers son is dyslexic. She said he has to learn a very specific way. Sounds like a good read. 4d
  •   gardenjunkie @bethw3 only 1 chapter in to it and so far it's really hitting home. As far as Aaron, I have no doubt he probably is. He is so much like Keagan....Growing up he just was never given the "label" like Keagan has. I'm glad we have answers for Keagan though. They really help accommodate at school for his way of learning. 4d

gardenjunkie Done!!! My last 4.50 miles tonight in the rain!!! I so enjoyed participating in this challenge and even though I've completed it for the month doesn't mean I'm finished running. Looking forward to running more #challengeville challenges in the future. #oldguyrunningtimefighter #oldguyrunning #runhappy #runnermom #likeagirl #justdoit #fitfam #fitmom 1w
  •   lisad1000 well done! 1w
  •   gardenjunkie @lisad1000 thanks. 1w
  •   imalittletaepot Nice work!!! 🏼🏼🏼 1w
  •   challengeville It definitely doesn't mean you finished @gardenjunkie CONGRATS ON THE COMPLETION!!!! Keep going the month is not over 1w
  •   runningstacie Yay You killed your goal! What a great job you did. Big time congratulations to you on your hard work! 1w
  •   gardenjunkie @runningstacie Aw Thanks! I had no clue I'd finish this early. I was asked if I wanted to continue on with Tinman but I worry with a super busy week next week and then out of town next weekend I'd be setting myself up for failure. I'll definitely keep doing these challenges though. 1w
  •   gardenjunkie @imalittletaepot Thanks friend!! 1w

gardenjunkie We are trying our hand at upside down tomato plants this year. Thanks to Firehouse Subs for the great 5 gallon pickle buckets and the awesome cedar we found camping not too long ago. 2w
  •   topangahomestead Interesting!!! Can't wait to see how it turns out 2w
  •   bethw3 I did that one year in the tipsy turvy thing and they did great - just keep them moist! Awesome u got some free buckets! U still got ur chickens? 2w
  •   gardenjunkie @bethw3 nope. No chickens. :( Something got in the coop last summer and killed every one of them. We took a break for a while but still talk about getting more... 2w
  •   bethw3 A friend of mine just got baby chicks in Greer. That's horrible - I have heard that it's hard to keep animals from getting to them. 2w
  •   gardenjunkie @bethw3 it is. You really have to be diligent with your coop and getting them put up EVERY NIGHT. Its worth it though. Lots of fun and good eggs. The boys miss them. 2w

gardenjunkie A sweaty 5:30am does not look good on me...but regardless both yesterday and today I was able to log another 3.25 miles each which puts me at 43.51 / 48 miles for #oldguyrunningtimefighter April challenge. Only another 4.5 miles to go. I think I've got this. 2w

gardenjunkie Transformation Tuesday! January 2014 was my breaking point. 25 lbs off this 5'1 frame. Some may call me obsessed (and thats okay ) but I prefer the word passionate. While I'll never turn down a cold beer and greasy cheeseburger, I absolutely adore being happier and healthier and staying active with my family. 2w

gardenjunkie We lost a 32 year old mother of 4 on Saturday. She collasped and died suddenly after crossing the finish line in a half that I actually looked in to running. My goes out to her family during this tragic time.
In other news the hubs work schedule allowed me to be back among the 5am-ers at the Y this morning to log another 3.1 for the month. 37.01/ 48 miles for the #oldguyrunningtimefighter April challenge. Almost there!

gardenjunkie Fresh pineapple water. All we're missing now is the Malibu Rum. 2w
  •   marlynpho Mmmmmm 2w
  •   gardenjunkie @yodas_mom the water infuser? Oh man. We love it. I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond for about $20. We do a new fruit mixture every week. Last week was strawberry and lemon. Lots and lots of different combos you can do. We love it. 2w
  •   lindaonwheels Aren't you going to eat the pineapple? 2w
  •   lindaonwheels That is left over? 2w
  •   gardenjunkie @lindaonwheels oh absolutely. We use the fruit for the infuser and eat whatever is left. Nothing goes to waste in this house with all boys. 2w
  •   bethw3 I adore fresh pineapple - can't eat canned anymore. I need to get one of those pineapple corer thingies. 2w
  •   aimeedarlingmnt Love!! We started drinking our water like this after our last maui trip. 2w

gardenjunkie Another 7.02 on the books on this gorgeous Saturday brings my #oldguyrunningtimefighter total to 31.64 /48 miles for April. I also wore my 13.1 #sweatybands handband for all those peeps out there running their halfs today. And just for the record...between miles 3-7 I counted 104 mailboxes. 2w

gardenjunkie I've had my pepper spray for quite some time and carry it on my keychain everywhere. I have never quite been compelled to run with it though until this week. After passing by some woods on Monday that were littered with police offers and K9s obviously looking for something or someone...I thought it was time. Another hot 3.1 miles at lunch makes me more than half way finished with my #oldguyrunningtimefighter 24.62 / 48. I declare tomorrow a day of rest....Maybe. 3w
