Yesterday

Yesterday was one of those days that just feels too “voluminous” to try to recount in detail. Too many little things, and they add up and make me feel tired just remembering. It was a day made for bullet points! Slept too late to get in a walk before church; didn’t have my bike back …

Greeny

I could have put this over at the foodie blog, but I want to share the love far and wide. 😉 I Twittered about doing this yesterday, and I got mixed reactions of horror and intrigue. Mind, it’s far from my own original idea! Near as I can tell, the first person to blog it …

Runners: Open Thread

First, look what came in the mail! I still think it’s funny that, before I knew I’d placed second in age group, I went back to the race site after they cleaned up, and nobody knew anything; when I asked about it, the people I asked were all, “Why, were you in contention to win?” …

Fridays are down-time

Monday through Thursday, we’re hopping from school to playground programs, and it’s a lot of fun, but Fridays are blissfully unscheduled. Some weeks, that will irritate me, as those are the “I have nothing to dooooo…” days, but this week, we really needed it. Last night, both boys came home utterly exhausted from their playground …

Today is kicking my butt

So I got up at 4:30 AM to try to beat the heat for my run, but it was already 75 degrees and so muggy I felt like I’d turned triathlete without noticing, doing a swim leg around my neighborhood. (Could have been worse, though; by 8:30, it was in the upper eighties, and I …

And in the category of “Why did I even bother…”

“It’s just a virus.” 🙄 Apparently, most of the kids coming into the doctor’s office recently have the same darn rash. “Summer virus,” she said, “which isn’t bad, since it means summer is on its way in?” Yeah. Gabe relished telling everybody in the office (at the top of his lungs), “I’m acting like myself!” …

Father’s Day

Eric made out this year. A while back, he sort of put a hurtin’ on our KitchenAid stand mixer, when he and some friends made sausages with it; it did the job, but the motor wasn’t really built for such a big challenge, and it’s never really been the same since then. I didn’t even …

Oh, needed this, did we?

It doesn’t itch, and it’s not raised. He might have a slight fever, but nothing much over the warmth that all of us are experiencing (I don’t trust our thermometer, but it seems to say he’s slightly warmer than usual), but he does say he feels a little dizzy when he lies down. The rash …

Race picture

Since Sean wasn’t there to take pictures this year (miss you guys!), I was pleased to see that there was at least one decent shot from yesterday. 😉 Running in the USA has over 500 photos, and I saw a bunch of people I know, so if you ran yesterday, it’s definitely worth the clicking!

Race Report: Lighthouse Run 2009

EDIT: I came in second in my age group! They’ll mail me my medal. That…that was warm. 😯 I appreciate what you’re saying, Cory, about other climes being much hotter, but we’re used to something a bit more temperate up here, and we train most of the time in cooler temps. Mid-seventies is at least …
