MM--sorry to hear about your DH. I hope you have a much easier week this week!
So you qualified for an age group prize, right? Wow. Simply amazing.
that things improve with the job situation.
1jooj--ugh! We had to replace the well pump at our trailer in the mountains this summer. Not fun and really pricey.
Geo--sounds like you had a nice time. We're not normal either, but it doesn't bother me too much. Though, that's changing as I get to know some of the other parents at R's school and realize how far we are from the norm these days.
tjsmama--good to know. I'm seriously considering the Lookout Mountain one, but waiting to talk summer plans with DH before registering. If I register, it will force me to swim, right?
Also, glad to see you got that 10 in and should have a little more time for running now.
Nick--sorry your run got cut short, but it sounded interesting while it lasted. I too need bras. Maybe this week?
mommajb--that's an awesome pace. Wow.
Nemesis--glad the craft show went so well.
kerc--yay for skiing.
After Wednesday's run up the great big hill near my daughter's school with the double jogger, I wanted to take it on again solo. I used to live in the apartments at the top of that hill so running up it was one of my earliest running experiences, and more ironically, it was 10 years ago last month that I started running, right up that hill and in that neighborhood. So, today I headed out for the hill and it wasn't nearly as hard without the jogger. It was long, which I remember from ten years ago, but quite manageable. Then I headed west along a stretch of road that didn't exist when I lived in the apartments, eventually connected to a "trail" along a canal ("trail" because at one point I had to cross on a railroad bridge in order to get to the other side of the canal), then up another hill, back down to the lake near my house, on the trails near the lake and home. Total: 9.5 miles at a 10:30 pace. Not bad for a hilly route, and 21.5 miles in for this week! I barely ever manage a 20-mile week, so this was exciting.
