This morning I ran the Frostbite 15K. It was awesome. Probably that's how I feel because I beat my ideal "goal" by 1 minute. It was amazing! I was super proud of my time. I ran 15K in 1:29:01, for those of you who haven't heard me announce in in 3 other ways today! And, I won a gift certificate for dinner for 2 to The Tavern, which H and I have never gone to, but we're looking forward to it b/c it's free. So, HOORAY! My race paid for itself! For more details on my race experience, read about it here.
Then G had his Pinewood Derby Car race today for the Cub Scouts. H and G headed out to the Derby at 1:30 for the official weigh in. As soon as B woke up from her nap, the girls and I sprinted over and arrived just in time to see his car go down the track. He got 2nd in all 3 heats, which no, that does not mean that he won a thing... but he didn't come in last, and he did have a mighty cute Dunkin Donuts Coffee car. I'll post photos shortly. And the cost of this adventure? The car "kit" was included in his dues, so after we added $2.75 for paint and hours of work... the total cost came in under $3. Pretty darned cheap. And he's as PROUD of that car as I am of my 15K time.
So now, it's Sunday night and it's another madcap heres a cap wheres a cap handicap dash to ice skating, hockey, home for dinner, baths, bed and whew- hopefully I can get a few minutes of sanity this evening too!
