Day 162 - Golfed and Jogged!

Sunday, September 08, 2013

I had the day off with my husband and we golfed 18 holes. I finally got my first ever par! This is my third year ever playing! I don't get to play much husband and son like to go on the bigger and harder courses. Oh, and I am left handed playing with right handed clubs! I actually do much better with right handed clubs, strange...

Afterwards, we drove about an hour to where our youngest son and his two friends were playing. There is a huge airsoft / paintball facility where they go to play their war games. It is huge and there are several maps (courses). We were able to get in and watch in the viewing sections. One map was where the people run around in the forest and the other one we saw was set up like an old, abandoned town. Tons of people, mostly kids, dressed up in fatigues and carrying airsoft guns or paintball guns. (it's the old Santa's Village in Carpentersville, IL)

When we got home, I had energy to go for a jog. I have been itching to go for a jog! I took my inhaler and off I went. I mostly jogged 4 miles! It felt awesome! On my 5th mile, I walked with my husband. He is in good shape, but I don't think he will ever jog...

Today was such a great day! I need many more of those days!


My friend Kelly completed her Ironman event in Wisconsin today. It took her 14 hours and 21 minutes to swim 2.5 miles, bike 110 miles, and jog 26.4 miles!!! She rocks!

    I'm glad they did something cool with Santa's Village. I thought they had made it into a little petting zoo/smaller amusement park. But this sounds a lot cooler. Glad you had a great day off! 93 degrees today! emoticon
