- January has been a pretty good month for me 103 miles, that includes 2 TAPER weeks.
- 4 days until Surf City! I wish it was tomorrow.
- Sinus are completely blocked. That sucks. I get chills in my head. My ears are plugged so I feel unbalanced plus well it is hard to breath. I hope it gets better by Sunday but so far it only gotten worst. Maybe running by the ocean will help me.
- Got 3 parents from Jonathan's class who asked today if it is OK to bring the little sisters of their sons who are in our class and were not invited to Jonathan's birthday party. Party is Friday. I gave the invitations 3 weeks ago. I already have 27 kids coming. Somebody please send me a magic pill for headaches. Seriously though...these are people I barely know..it makes me really uncomfortable to say no and I am a little annoyed with this to be honest. One said her husband cannot babysit because he has a dentist appt. OK first of all it is not babysitting when the husband is the father of the child, it is parenting and second..dentist on Friday night? Right.
Yesterday our school went in lock down. An armed and dangerous person was in the school vicinity and the police placed our school in lock down mode. The principal announced in the speakers: "EAGLE CODE, I repeat EAGLE CODE". This lasted 40 minutes. Kids had to go under their desks at first, than stay in the dark with the doors of each classrooms locked. Helicopters were flying over the area and police cars were on site. They did catch the man they were chasing. It makes me sick to my stomach to think something bad could have happened at the school. This is not something I thought I would have to discuss with my 6 and 7 yrs old boys. I am grateful that nobody got hurt and that the staff knew what to do. I was told that everyone stayed very calm through all this. Will's teacher has been at the school for over 15 yrs and this is the first time something like this happens there. It took me a while to shake the sick feeling out of my system...the thing that would not leave my mind was I was not there.
This man was running from the law and he was on the street I now take when I run.
Yesterday, was rest day because this is TAPER week.
The kind of funny:
Kind of funny if you have no taste in Basketball and cannot recognize GREATNESS you might think this is funny. I am a good sport. I can appreciate a good joke. Obviously poor Simba will never witness basketball greatness, I feel really bad for him. If you guess who sent me this today you get an extra entry to my GIVEAWAY HERE.
