Once again, if I want anyone to read this and leave me comments, I should probably write more often, so here's an update since last Thursday.
Thursday-presentation at Frederick Country Day school. Those preschoolers were so cute, and they got a kick out of crawling out from under a blanket to practice crawling low under smoke from a house fire. So much more effective than that last presentation.
Friday-Really slow day. I did get in 5 miles in the evening though.
Saturday-10 mile "long" run with the NCR Trail Snails. Most of them were either recovering from Marine Corps last weekend or tapering for a 50 mile ultra (http://www.jfk50mile.org/
) in a couple of weeks. I'd almost forgotten how much fun it is to run with someone-running may be an individual sport, but it doesn't have to be lonely!
Saturday evening Dad and I went to Eric's final marching band competition of the season. I thought they did a lot better than 78.5, but there's always next year. And those cowbells that the River Hill spectators took delight in ringing constantly were really annoying.
Sunday-Spent the morning sleeping in and watching the minute-by-minute NYC Marathon (http://www.ingnycmarathon.com/home/index.php
) elite results. I had to leave around noon so I didn't get to see the end or the highlights on TV at 2. We spent the afternoon on Dad's boat and the evening at Heidi's GBYO concert, which was even better than I expected. Especially blue cathedral.
I also ran 4 miles, uptempo at a 9:50 pace. I'll take that as a good sign that my legs are well on their way to recovering from Baltimore (http://www.thebaltimoremarathon.com
) and getting ready for NCR (http://www.brrc.com/
) in 3 weeks.
And today it's once again really slow, but at least I have a presentation tomorrow that I need to get ready for, not to mention Coleen and Tom's wedding on Saturday and handbell performances Sunday morning.
Now that I'm actually updating again, I expect comments!
