Oh Hi!

Um, yeah.  Marathon the day after tomorrow.  Busy busy busy!  Here's a quick recap.

Post-run pic, of course
Saturday - Last long run with Mel on Orting Trail.
Rainy rainy rainy.  It was cold and soggy, but we chatted the entire 10 miles.  I even made Mel run the hilly course option on the return 5 miles.  Heh!  It was really pretty out though.  And there was a car show going on in the town, despite the rain, so it was neat seeing some classic (and gorgeous!) cars.  Mel was awesome and treated me to chocolate milk and a croissant afterwards.  Yum.  It was delish!  Very thankful that Mel has been training with me for over a year!!  **Note:  I got some interesting remarks about my sunglasses on Mel's recap...and I want to say that unfortunately no, it wasn't wishful thinking...I'm just a bug magnet and I need eye windshields.  Hee hee!  I always wear the sunglasses or glasses, even though I may tend to forget to put them on my face and end up wearing them on my head. ;)

Sunday - Trav's first father's day with Goober!
Trav & Goob
We went to the Mariner's game with Trav's family, and the M's won.  Woot!  Goober has already been to a game, so she's a seasoned pro now.  She absolutely loved looking around and seeing everything.  She actually slept in Trav's arms for a good half hour too!  It was fun hanging out with Trav's fam, even though I missed my Dad and siblings that morning.  Oh well.  Next year!

Monday - Ran with Kerrie & our munchkins.
Quite the experience!  Goober was not happy at all and so I had to stop and feed her some pears for a bit at the 2 mile mark.  Still wasn't happy after eating, so Kerrie and I found ourselves pretty much sprinting with the jogging strollers.  Oh boy.  Goober is a Speed Demon Coach I say!  I actually had to take her out and carry her for a 1/4 mile because she just wouldn't stop the big-tear crying. :(  But once she was carried, all was good.  Silly girl.  Ooooo!  And Goober started swim lessons...and she LOVES it!  Yay!

Grumpy Goob, happy T Jr.

OH GOODNESS.  The rest of the week has been Goober swim lessons, working on the blogger meetup surprise and trying to get my head together for Saturday.  

I'm bib #16020.  Track my progress!  :)
