Thank you to everyone who left comments and who sent me emails about my Maggie. I appreciate all of them.
The days are very hard. I miss my dog, my house is too quiet and I just feel sad. I know it will take time for this sadness to go away.
This weekend we had a lot of things planned and that was good for all of us.
Saturday I ran a 5k race with my sons. This was a small local race very close to where I live.
They did awesome, much better than they did at the Turkey Trot. They got a 4 min PR! We followed a 2 min run / 1 min walk plan. I am going with the time on my Garmin because there was no mat at the start only at the finish so the chrono was only accurate for the first people...first time I see this at a race. It was ok because I did this one with the boys and not "for real".
Will the mini ambassador for NUUN!
I am really proud of them and of how well they did.
They were really happy to get a big medal!
We are already signed up for our 3rd one in March at Knotts Berry Farm!
So that was a good distraction for us but not as good as what came next.
One of my best and dearest friend from Quebec came for a surprise visit over the weekend!
That is crazy I know.
She has been there for me for every big moment in my life; she was my maid of honor, she came here when I had my kids. We met on the first day of high school and we have been great friends for more than 30 years, we were even roomates in College. Man I am old:). She called me last week asking if I was busy during the weekend. She said she realized turning 45 was a big deal (she is 6 mos younger than me so her turn is coming!) and she wanted to come for the weekend! She has 3 kids and she came with her youngest who is the same age as Jonathan ( they are just one month apart)
It was so great to see her and just have a fun time. It was just what we all needed. I am lucky to have great friends like her.
