Saturday was Little RazZDoodle's party. Cake, ice cream, and some obnoxious kids. Pretty much your typical kids party. Earlier in the week, our daycare provider/sitter offered to make us a cake. They were finishing the cake when the storm hit. They still managed to finish the cake by using generator power. They said that they didn't want to trouble us by having us go to our grocery store and pick up a generic cake. Are you freakin' kidding me??? It was a great cake and a cool story to tell the little guy later on.
Long run (7 miles) was yesterday. That, in and of itself, was nothing spectacular save for the fact that it was a completely new route. We went down to visit my in-laws and I decided to run on a trail that was about 1/2 mile from their house. Always nice to shake things up a bit for a run, especially a long run!
This week's focus in the marathon training will be nutrition. I'm doing OK with it, but it could be a whole lot better. A double cheeseburger at McD's was probably not my best choice this Friday. Nor was stealing my daughter's fries. Nor were the Milk Duds. Nor the popcorn with butter. Nor WAL-E. You get my drift.
Today was Day 1 of the Hundred Push-Ups Challenge. I thought I'd give it a try. I have 6 weeks to kill.
My next focus is to have a post that is somewhat interesting, introspective, and/or humorous. Whichever comes first.
I have the kids this week, so we're off to the zoo. The perfect babysitter! (insert joke here). With any luck, I may take the 4 year old to the Olympic Swimming Trials later this week.
