Priorities

Oops I forgot to get a picture with your wife in it! 

Dear AJH,


Why have you not kept me in the loop?  I just found out that one of the last races you did was the Speedway 5K. And your friend T told me that you have not even been running for a month.  I am so sorry to hear that.  I know how running keeps you sane.  But I also heard that you have taken up biking. That is such good news.  You know that next to race car driving biking is one of my top loves.  It seems like we have some common interests.  I will be back in New England this coming weekend.  If you are around I have a great opportunity for you. It is not a race but you can raise money for a good cause and we can get together again.  It is the Dempsey Challenge.  As you see not only will you raise money for a good cause but you would get to shop at LL Bean and the outlet stores you love in Freeport. Perhaps Patagonia or Horny Toad are having some good sales.  So, AJH, will I be seeing you?
Love,
McDreamy
The marathon course


Dear Patrick,
I would love to be in Maine this weekend being part of the Dempsey Challenge. But you will understand when I tell you why I can't be there.  Family is important to me as it is to you.  I will be in Corning, NY to cheer my daughter on in a marathon. I thought we would be running it together (I mean that in the loosest sense - running the same race not side by side believe me) however I am not running so I will be the best race fan ever!  But I am sure our paths will cross again.
Love,
AJH
My Marathon Girl I will be Cheering for on Sunday!

Hehe Emily over McDreamy hands down :)

Is there any improvement with the foot? When you start back, will you do it very progressively using run/walking?

Have a blast in Corning!

Amy said...

you just made me smile - those are just the normal everyday sacrifices moms make, right? have a great time and good luck to Emily!

Char said...

Would she make the same sacrifice for you, I wonder.

LMC said...

You may now be in a class all by yourself, the one with ladies who shunned McDreamy. Good for you!! Good luck to Emily and have a great time cheering!

Dash said...

Julie said...

You are so funny, kicking Patrick to the curb:) Yes, he has a broken heart but will get over it with time. Go Emily! She is such a great runner and is going to kick butt! Have fun!

McDreamy-Schmeamy. Family is way more important. Hopefully she will one day repay you... Lol.

Darlene said...

I would do any race where McDreamy is...but sorry Patrick, I am running in the Susan Komen Race for the Cure on Oct 2 in honor of all my friends who have survived breast cancer.

AJH, Good luck to your daughter. Next year, you will be running along side her.

Emz said...

I loved this post. awesome. He's not really married, right?!

GO EMILY!!!!

Fran said...

Any posts of you with McDreamy in it results in me licking of the screen of his face :lol:

His challenge would definitely be something for you to do but cheering on your beautiful girl is indeed so much more important.

Heidi said...

Awww, it's so sweet how you two write these little love letters all the time. ;) hahaha

Good luck to your daughter in her race. I know that is one of your biggest joys to watch your kids doing what they love. Enjoy!

I think you should have posted a photo pre-mcdreamy, from Can't Buy Me Love!

Have fun @ the marathon!

egb said...

Velma said...

Love me some McDreamy, but I am sure he is not so great in person - family (much better!)

Jennifer said...

Love your post! He is my favorite doctor!

Molly said...

You are hilarious. It was time for Dr. Shephard to be put in his place. Not all women can drop everything when he needs them. :) Way to stay strong...and not give into those baby blues.
