until we run
I hijacked Mum's personal planner today and wrote in the dates for all our major events for the year. I wan to be sure we have the Gumps "booked" for race support (or, in some cases, babysitting). We might even get them to enter a 5k or two. I'll keep you posted!
And now, because I'm on my mesozoic laptop (read: big, old, slow) I'm refusing to spend another age adding much more to this blogpost, so here's a synopsis of the week:
Lots of logistical calisthenics to accommodate running, rehearsal and social schedules. Nancy drags Alan on a shoe-trying-on excursion so she can fall in love with $140 running shoes (funny story for a future post). Madeline is selected for District V chorus along. I do my first treadmill run (very slooooow, much fiddling with settings, have to learn to time it so I can watch a whole TV show instead of missing the dramatic conclusion, felt super dizzy afterward). Sponsors and a second speaker are found for Administrative Profs day event (much to my relief). I'm approved at work to go to a conference in Montreal this summer. The kids go to Nana Mary's in Milo from Thursday until today; Madeline yanks out a baby tooth. Alan and Nancy enjoy Wii time without the kids. Mad and I both get our nails done (an early birthday treat for her). I hit all my miles for the week but don't do any cross-training. More snow + fluctuating temps = lots of icicles.
