Downtime

The day you run a marathon, how do you relax afterwards?

So.  After I rocked out my 37:40 PR ( see how I just slipped that in?), I....

...threw a 4 year old birthday party.
Yea, well, I never said I was brilliant....

We had kids.  We had sugar.  We had kids who'd eaten sugar.  Add a bunch of tired adults, and you've got a recipe for disaster.  Somehow, it worked out great.
By the way...
It was a
WILD.
Party.




Happy Birthday B-NUT!

Pillow pets are great! S'ghetti girl has the unicorn...it goes to school with her for reading time.

You are a wickedly smart mama. You hopped them up on sugar so they'd crash and you could rest. Evil plan! I hope it worked.

Just found your blog and read your race report. NICE job, very inspiring to see you took so much time off of your PR .
