"Really though, just a little while back the thought of even completing a HM was but a pipedream. Now, each one you complete is another practice test and learning lesson. It will all come together for you with body, nutrition, mind and your legs will cooperate and you will have a race that makes it ALL worth while soon!!"
She is right; completing a HM was a dream just about a year ago.
Today I went for 4 miles with my Brooks Ravenna 2. My second run with those and I did like it. I plan on using these shoes all week and even Sunday for my longer run unless I get pain somewhere of course. Those shoes feel better for hills so far, going up and down, I think maybe because they have more cushion than my Mizunos.
So yesterday I skipped 2 big events from last weekend. If you are bored with my kids jump to the next topic below!
1. THE birthday party
28 kids showed up. That is a lot of little people running around. Some were close friends of our family and some were classmates. I was the only person there who knew everyone. It was a little crazy but Jonathan was happy and that is all that matters on his birthday. This was the first time we had a big group like this for a birthday, not sure I want to repeat this!
People brought siblings that were not invited, some asked ahead of time and some decided to just surprise me! I did not say anything but this is not cool. One kid missed the whole week of school because he had hand-foot-mouth disease and he came to the party?!!! How is that OK? He was not in school during the day! I guess that is part of the deal of inviting people you don't know very well. This was the last big party for any of my sons. After 6 I tell them they can choose an activity for our family and depending on what it is they might be able to invite a friend or 2. For his 7th bday, Will wanted to go to Sea World so that is what we did.
This was the LEGO year. Lucky Jonathan, I want to steal his presents!!! I LOVE LEGOS!
|That gift was a huge hit!|
2. Will's basketball Game
Game 3 for the Cougars. Will scored 2 baskets and he played better defense. I was really proud of him! That is him with the ball.
