Wednesday I was able to get in a 3 mile run while my daughter was at Bible Study. Thursday I got in a 4 mile run. I really like to get in a 4-5 mile run at least 3 times during the week and then a long run on the weekend, so I'm still not getting in exactly what I want, but it's better than nothing.
Friday night I had the Nike team over for a picture party/reunion. I had gotten pictures from several of the participants and put them all in a slideshow. We watched that, ate food and reminisced about event weekend. It was lots of fun, but made my bedtime much later than normal! I didn't get into bed until almost 1:00 am this morning and then got up again at 5:30 so I could go be there at the start of the run for the winter team. I didn't run with them today because my daughter had a meeting she had to attend at 9:00, so I missed my long run today. There was no time to squeeze it in because we left her meeting at 11:30 and headed straight to my son's first soccer game, which started at 11:30. We got there just after half time. After that game, we grabbed lunch and headed for game #2. Luckily his indoor game got cancelled, so we hit Dairy Queen for an ice cream cake and headed home to get ready for my daughter's birthday party. Her real birthday is on the 25th, but since it usually falls over Thanksgiving weekend, we celebrate early. Right now, my daughter, her two cousins, a friend from church and a friend from school are upstairs watching Transformers. They've already opened gifts, ate pizza and had the ice cream cake! It's hard to believe she will be 12. (And my brother and sister-in-law traded kids with me and took my son to a monster truck show. I can't wait to hear about that. He was very excited about it!)
Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in some kind of run tomorrow. I doubt it will be as long as I need it to be, but I need to run. This week is going to be crazy and the holidays are always stressful for everyone. Running keeps me sane.
I also want to mention that I came across a site last week that I marked in my favorites. The man lost his wife to cancer and is starting a new site for people to share their stories on. The new site will be www.bloggersagainstcancer.blogspot.com. It's just getting started , but check it out. It use to be a rare occurance to actually know someone with cancer. Now it's a rare occurence not to. We need to find a cure - for ALL types of cancer.
