Monday, July 21 - WORKOUTS!
Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Yoshi: Awesome job at the race yesterday! Congrats. As for my kids, M & C are 20 months apart. On paper it is awesome, as we know they will be best buds in short time. But in practice, the first three weeks have been... ummm... trying? ****? tiring? all of the above? What's hard is that C is only 21 months young, so he's still very needy and needs to be held from time to time and carried down stairs (he's afraid to go down all of a sudden), etc. I'm guessing things will settle out as soon as M becomes less fussy. How do your kids get along being 22 mos apart? Guessing awesome!
Tamster: A big, big congrats to Steve for going out of his comfort zone. He has honestly been fun to watch!
zoj, Yoshi, reg (nice ride, btw), etc: So, yeah, we bought the Nissan Rogue over the Mazda CX-5. The deal here was that Nissan was very willing to negotiate with us, while Mazda was more like, yeah, sure, okay, but this is where we stand, what the sticker says. Nissan bent over backward to get this deal done. The CX-5 drove much better, as if a car. But the Rogue had a far, far, far better package with more options, etc., and a much more luxury look and feel inside. We truly feel we got a great deal. And the car drives very nicely, just not as tight a suspension as the CX-5. We made a low ball offer to Nissan, knowing they wouldn't take it; Nissan tried and tried and tried, with no stress and no strong arm tactics. We walked out saying the car was over our budget. A few days later I got an e-mail from them asking how they can make a deal. I made the same offer as before. And they took it. Been loving the car so far.
Saturday: 5 mile solo trail run at my favorite set of trails. Body very tired. Lack of sleep. Plus normal aftermath 100 pound.
Sunday: 6 mile solo trail run at a different set of trails. Body tired.
Monday: 4 mile easy road run.
Great day, friends!
