Yesterday I went for my first double digit run since the marathon. I ran a hot, sweaty, slow ten mile run from Iwo Jima out to near Belle Haven and back. I really hope my legs aren’t completely recovered, because the last five miles were darned hard. I have a spot behind one knee that announced its presence towards the end of the marathon and decided to give me a little trouble again yesterday. I’m not sure what it is and it feels more sore than actually painful, but I’ll definitely be watching it. Thankfully, a friend asked me to run with her, so the miles passed pretty quickly despite the heat, hills, and tired legs.
We’ve had a nice weekend so far, with some playdates, a birthday party, a cookout with friends, Rolling Thunder, and “How to Train Your Dragon” at the Cinema and Drafthouse. It’s summer here this weekend, so I’m sure there’ll be some playing in the sprinkler at some point today or tomorrow. I, on the other hand, really need to knock out a couple more miles today to hit my goal of 20 for the week. I’m dreading heading out in the 85+ degree weather. Bleh.
And now, the winners…
Shoo once again dressed for the occasion. Today he decided to get with the Memorial Day theme and dress in uniform.
He also chose a new vessel for the names – his knight helmet.

Check out the remaining items (the sunglasses, SPIbelt, socks, Bondi Band, nuun, and Mad Fox glass are gone) and let me know what you want. Three more winners will be announced in the next couple of days and then the final winner will be announced by the end of the week. And trust me, being winner #13 is not a bad thing. ;o)
