t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Taper Time

Four days to go. Today I ran 3 miles. It felt like a joke. 26.2, only 4 days away. .Tomorrow 4 miles. Friday 2. That's it.

Did I mention I am getting sick. Last night I spent hours searching for other BQ (Boston Qualifying) non-Sunday marathons. I don't run on Sundays. It doesn't sit right with me as a Sabbath activity.There are not many to choose from.

I am praying to stay healthy. In the mean time I am pounding my kale/spinach/carrot/peach/flax smoothies.

This pic is from our Saturday run. My awesome running partner Marie and me. Did I mention her goal is 3:00 hours. Yes, you read that right. Fast. I feel so blessed to jog in the beautiful mountains right here by my home. This canyon is a 2 mile run from my house. (Check out the tree on the right. Can you tell which way the wind blows! Crazy stuff.)

45 degrees. Wind at our backs. Feet pounding the pavement. Soothing and exhilarating at once.
