Happy Birthdays

and what am I thinking?!

Happy Birthday, Gabe.

Happy Birthday, Lilly.

The years go faster and faster as I get older. If I could put in an order I would want the next five to go super fast, and then slow to a crawl. You see, in five years I can attach to the ex's social security...nice that 28 years gives me a little bit of financial security after the fact. However, I don't want the grand kids growing up any faster. I guess I will sit quietly and bide my time. Of course the lady at the SS office DID say there was one way I can get on earlier...

I am signed up for a runner's class. This is a "what am I thinking" moment. I wrote the Tri-Turtle and asked her if she was up for the challenge. What a great response...she said that we BOTH needed to be up for the challenge. I then told her I had already put it on the calendar. Nervous? Absolutely. I honestly am not sure it can be done, but the only way to find out is to try, eh? I predict a bit of scrapes and bruises in my future. It will all be worth it to be able to run again.

With that, my day begins. And it looks to be a good one.

YAY FOR YOU!!! did you sign up for that class through the pousbo rec center? I had heard of it but am still running with last year's tri training pals. (sundays at 8 if you are interested!)

This is a one day thing thru the turtle herself. If I can get a handle on the mechanics and all I may join you later. At this point I just hope there is a way to make this work with the leg I have. (I will be looking into a running leg, but fear the price tag.) You two legged folk have no idea the difficulty involved in keeping a steady pace with a lead weight attached to one knee ;-)

Time does fly by alright.......
And congrats on the running. I loved it when I ran....but my knees just can't take it. I've tried several times to 'go back' and always end up worse. It is sad. But, I can walk.....and when it quits being frozen outside, walk I will.
You have cute grand kids. I wouldn't want them to grow up any faster, either.
