1. Last Saturday night we drove quite a ways to see a student of mine in a play. It was a long way to go but so worth it. It was a great play with a lot of kids in it and well done. My student was Chip and did such a good job. Once she knew we were there (after intermission) she was so excited! She loved that we came and it made me feel good that I made the effort and took the time. Sometimes it's the small things.
The last time I ran in Portland (I think) was also my last
2. I got a new camera today. It was a pain. I'm still not sold on the whole extended warranty thing yet I got another one with the new camera. I would have had to buy the camera today and I only had to pay the difference. I am rough on cameras but I do use them a lot. Tomorrow I will have to play with the new one and make sure I know how to use it BEFORE I GO TO MAINE THIS WEEKEND! Why am I going to Maine this weekend? To run in the Shipyard Half Marathon. It looks like a great race, a well organized race and a fun race but racing (running in my case) 13.1 miles in July??? My friends going with me are more excited than I am and that's because they're not running it! I must say when I look at the course map I think I remember why I signed up for it. Fun, AJH, have fun. Don't worry about your time!
The course looks pretty sweet. I'm all about the scenery.
3. Today I ran at home after sleeping rather late. Sleeping late takes a big chunk out of your day. Then I went to Burlington and biked on the bike path and causeway which I always enjoy! Tomorrow morning I'll try to get one more swim in this week and then I am done until Sunday and the half.
4. Did I mention that there will be food trucks after the race? And one of the trucks is a cupcake truck? I think my excitement is building!
