(sorry, I've got Model UN on the brain...taking 20 kids downtown to compete for the next 2 days! yay!)
CONGRATS to my buddy Jacks who ran a 1:54 at the Country Music Half this weekend! Might as well throw in a congrats to Rae, too, while I'm at it! Great race ladies on what sounds like a tough course!!!
More congrats to my Soler buddies Courtney and Jen, who PR'd at Louisville with a 4:09 this weekend! Musta been somethin' in the atmosphere!
I, myself, had a VERY SLOOOOOOOOOW 13 mile run on Sunday. Sooooo humid. Sooo underestimated the humidity.
Sooooo ran outta water. Ouch!
But, thanks to Wil, the Kahuna, and the Arctic Monkeys (currently playing for ya) I got through it. Then I had to go play TWO opening games for our RETURNING CHAMPIONS Weasels beer-league softball team. That title is right up there with completing an Ironman.
Um, no it's not.
But we're still proud. :)
We won, 12-7 and 16-9. Yay! I was 4-5 with 1 BB. Not very exciting hits, but hey, we'll take it since I hadn't SWUNG A BAT since last August. Whew.
Definitely decided to switch my LONG run to the middle of the week, from here on out I think. Not fun, but necessary. I was soooooooamazinglytired for the games and it sort of took the fun outta it. That's supposed to be my fun social release time. Plus, Joe and Gordo (the Going Long tag-team) say that it's actually better if you can spread out the long stuff a bit. For me, the long run is more fun than the long brick (at least right now). So I think I can get through it fine on a Wednesday, and then go to my church group to chill and stuff. We'll give it a shot this Thursday and see how it goes.
I'm rooting for everyone's school levies to pass tomorrow......GOOOOOOO school levies! Yeah, um, cuz if they don't, it will be even HARDER for Matt to find a job. So get out there and vote for your levy.
One more thing that's a bit heavy on my mind--just found out tonight that our buddy's Dad was diagnosed with stomach cancer. One more reason why I don't ever take off my Livestrong bracelet....from the sounds of it they caught it early, but he still has to have surgery on Thursday. Very scary. This guy is Matt's best friend, and his Dad is a great guy. So send any prayers and/or vibes this way for him.
