I’ve been out of touch with the blogging world for a while since we went on a quick trip to family in the Carolina’s and since I’m transitioning to the VFF my runs are pretty much non-existent and well…lame. I was hoping to get a few short runs in over the extended weekend but that never happened. The closest I got was chasing (in the VFFs) the kids around the yard for about 30 minutes. I wish I had my Garmin on so I could actually see how far I ran and to see how the the GPS would track me climbing all over the fort/swing set. The good news is that my calves weren’t sore at all. I can’t wait to “officially” run tomorrow.
Since I don’t have anything running related to share I’ll torture you with a story about my kids: About 7 hours into our 8 hour drive on Friday, my two oldest girls were singing to their praise and worship CD. Lady M and I couldn’t be prouder as they sounded like angels. Attempting to provide some fatherly love, encouragement and wisdom I started to tell the girls how proud I was of them. I wanted to tell them that not only did they sound beautiful and look beautiful but they also had a beautiful character in that they were praising God. I didn’t get that far. After stating that I was proud of them my middle daughter (age 2) yelled out, “Anybody want to see my boobie!?” The oldest daughter just laughed. It was all I could do to stay on the road!
Needless to say I had to rethink my words about their character! It’s a good thing that she is only 2 because if was older I would be really worried! Now, that you’ve heard my girls are already being scouted by the producers of “Girls Gone Wild”, I feel I need to provide proof that they didn’t start with those ambitions. Here is my youngest taking a nap while loving on a baby doll. How can something this sweet turn into a flasher?
Maybe it is because they come from the same gene pool that gets excited about beating silly games. Here is a picture of my finest moment of the mini-vacation. I’m not expecting a Nobel Peace Prize in their future!
Finally congrats to all you Boston finishers! I am impressed and motivated to run in your footsteps. I can’t wait to read all of your race recaps!
