Okay so my 2016 resolution was to run a half marathon a month, I'm proud to report month 2 is DONE. It was my worst time by far, but I ran with a friend 20 years my senior and I was NOT leaving her. I am thankful for the chance to talk and impressed she was steady in her pace the entire time. It was the first half for our school librarian, Ms. Newman, and she KILLED it. So proud of her. Best surprise of the day was to see Jett Boy and Cullen at the finish line...that never happens so it was great to share this one with them.
So finally there was another close half marathon. I ran in Oxford. It was not a PR at all. I ran with my friend from church Donna. It was hilly. The weather was fine. I finished but I was very disappointed with our finish time. It's really the first time I had promised someone I'd run with them.
The highlight was my two boy being at the finish line.
Sometimes choir just gets to be too much for Jett. It is too much time I'm not giving him attention, too much time he has to be still, too much time he has to be nice...I guess it is just too much. The last couple of weeks he has put himself in time out, outside the classroom.
Mary Collins is his partner in crime and they seemed to have the best time in time out. So much fun in fact, they told me to go back inside, they were fine.
They look like they are up to no good, but they are the sweetest of friends.
These precious babies were adorable at church this morning sharing sugar before the sermon. I mean they shared a seat and snacks and smooches. Valentine's seems to come quickly after Jett's birthday. We spent the day at church it seems. I gave Cullen a phone cover (romantic- I know...) and Cullen decided at 33 he was too old to give me anything. I see a new pair of running shoes in my future...just the perfect pair to make up for it. I should remind him the last time he didn't get me anything for Valentine's he got a nasty case of Pitiriosis Rosea... itchy hives that hang around for six weeks.
