Last week we did not have the official clock at the practice race and we figured 50 minute 5 K for my time. This week had official clock and finished in 47:50!
I ran for Gerald Gregg who was a runner and passed. He is the uncle of Haley Gregg the race coordinator who has a bum knee and couldn't run this year. So I ran for her in his honor. I was blessed to have done this all by it's self but it did make it special to run in memory of someone so double blessing and to her as well. Boy God show up!
OK then the baby shower. She got many nice things. It was a diaper shower but while many gave diapers and wipes (tradition for second child) she got many other things. She came to my home to embroider the baby's name on an outfit for the hospital and was sad that Baby Benjamin would use so much hand me down stuff that had Asher's name on it. Would the Baby have an identity crises? The whole time I know I have a bunch of burp cloths, multiple clothes, and a very special baby blanket for her. I also have a big brother shirt for Asher but Mums the word. So I help her embroider her 3 things :). They also turned out really cute but I forgot to get pictures of them.
She was delighted at the shower and smiled and laughed with me about her worries. I told her bring the stuff and what we can we would simply put the Benjamin's name on too!
Today I ran/walked 3 miles in 53:42 min. Could not beat my race time but I will keep trying!
