They say a picture is worth a thousand words...
|Just a few blocks from the hospital...|
|This is a huge park that my sons' run XC in & also the site of STAC championships...no meet there anytime soon :(|
|Bridge 3 blocks from hospital...|
By the time I was finally released from work I was exhausted, collapsed into bed & for the first time did NOT travel to Thing 1's XC meet on my saturday off. I felt like a bad mother...especially when he PR'd by a minute and a half, finishing 17th overall with a time of 20:34 for 5K!!!! He told me tonight that he may snag the 7th Varsity spot for this weekends meet! I am so proud! 1st place wins for Varsity & JV boys and JV girls!
By the time sunday rolled around I had a measly 8 miles in for the week & my long run that had been scheduled for thursday had been thrown to the wayside due to the circumstances. Sunday came & though I didn't get out until the afternoon, I finally...FINALLY....got in a GOOD 20 miler! It took 3 hours 58 minutes, but I did it without any walking! Less than 3 weeks to go....I think I got this!
