So, as Chris said: let's give it a try. Ask me anything. No holds barred. No subject too serious or frivolous. I can't guarantee that I will answer every question, but I guess we'll see.
Want to know something about my prior training?
Want to know about my heel?
Want to know the secret to being happy?
Want to know what I do when I am not running my kids all over creation?
Want to know what I'm going to do to my hair today?
All sorts of thrilling questions are out there just oozing with anticipation to be answered, so ask away.
In the meantime, I spent a little time up in the mountains on Friday where I
Ryan took off like a bat out of hell, he can now run probably 2x my speed,
|These trees were all leaning over sideways - very odd. Any ideas why?|
Anyway, when we got into Idaho Springs, I noticed the river was running crazy wild with all the rain we've had this past week so the boys wanted to run the rapids, as they say...
They had an awesome time. Because the water is flowing like wicked crazy, they were done in an hour and I barely had time to tag along on the frontage road for pictures, but said it was the best rafting trip EVER (and those boys have done a lot!).
Saturday I was fortunate to meet up with blogger Matt of Matty Run Run for some lunch at Whole Foods. Matt's one of my favorite blogs to read - he's articulate yet funny and really provides a good read. He and his awesome wife just had a baby - meet Matt, his wife Sara and their new baby boy, Henry!
|Henry obviously notices his daddy!|
Thanks, Matty - was great meeting you and your beautiful family and can't wait until you're back in town again.
I'm happy to report that my ankle is better and I am back to running my ploddingly (that's a word you know!) slow pace. Going to head to PT today to make sure I didn't do something drastic to it...and have him check out my rib muscle, which is obviously better but still hounding me now and then. And that bee sting from last week??? Um, yeah...that sucker swelled so bad it looked like someone slugged me, but thankfully it's now almost all okay (a little itchy, but the grapefruit-sized growth on the side of my face is thankfully gone. Check back next week to see what new catastrophe I endured).
Ok, that's a wrap! Chris states I am to bestow this Q&A Award to five people who have to do this on their blog, then pass it on to five others - and use that same image file above. Since I'm horrible at picking, I'm going with the first 5 who commented on my last post. The lucky recipients are:
Marcia @ The Studly Runner
Julie @ You just have to TRI
Jamoosh @ Last Mile Lounge
Abbey @ Have Dental FLoss, Will Travel
Liz @ Runner Mum
Ha - teach you guys to rush out and comment on my posts, huh??
I'll give you til Sunday to ask questions (you know I can't rush into another blog post this week already) and I'll post the answers early next week. In the meantime, RUN STRONG, Friends!
