Drippy Drawers(AKA: Sandy Pockets)
summer fun, 2011
Yikes! BS and I played GRANDMA for four straight days with Drippy Drawers. ! Drippy's Mom and Pop went to Hawaii for the paddle board race. Drippy stayed and kept grandma Meg BUSY, BUSY, BUSY. OMG, how did I EVER have the energy to raise two kids, work and function? 5 days with Drippy was more difficult than the San Francisco Marathon a few years ago. No kidding.
Today Drippy's Mom called to tell me he is potty trained!
It's been a most excellent summer!
Today the MASTERS GIRLS had some great runs at the 56th Annual Balboa Park 8 miler. Well, Sweet Alexis in the light green shirt isn't a masters runner but she was sure a great cheerleader. THANKS ALEXIS!!
I didn't have a stellar run, it was actually a minute slower than last year and I felt pretty tired the whole time but I ZIPPED up the MAN/WOMAN suite(Marathon TALK)and just pushed through. No negative thoughts, just pushed. I was happy with that. I'm feeling the affects of
NOT running the long mileage on the weekends during these longer races, those that are longer than a 10k. I might have more speed for the short stuff but the endurance is something I will integrate later in my training.
Two Other major YIPPEES from the race
1. I had no poop/potty problems thanks to Imodium
2. My foot did not hurt during the entire race, despite the hills and terrain. It's been 5 months since my Boston episode with my foot and today, it was confirmed that I am back to having a foot and body that is 100% healthy.
There is HOPE and HEALING for all....believe.
Finally, here's proof that the WEST COAST bloggers got together for Jill's visit from Colorado.
We had a fun get together and it was GREAT to visit!
Miss you already, Jill!!!
