1. I thought about becoming a streaker. I ran eight days in a row, including a strong 10 mile run, 6 miles of hills, and a 4.5 mile speed workout. Yesterday I gave blood. I spent the rest of the day with barely enough energy to walk up the stairs. I feel better today, but I know from past donations, my runs will be impacted for about a week. Since I want to run a really strong 11 miles on Friday, I’m taking a rest day today.
2. Last night at Cub Scouts, Jones heard about a sleep away camp this summer. He REALLY wants to go. The catch is, he’s never been away from us for more than two nights. I’m leaning towards letting him go though. He’s one of those kids who doesn’t want to try things until he’s ready, but when he says he’s ready, he’s usually right. Any thoughts from those of you with kids who go away to camp?
3. I walked the boys to school today wearing my Vibrams without socks. The air may have been warm, but the ground definitely wasn’t. I couldn’t feel my feet by the time I got home. Note to self: if it’s been cold out, don’t wear the Vibrams or wear a pair of socks.
And the winner of the ALO capris is….
