The Good, the Bad, and the Terrible.

Thursday, April 26, 2012

So, apparently, Thursday is my blogging day. :-)

Something rather interesting is going on in my life. I'm going to be working on two 5Ks over the next few months. By working on, I mean helping to organize and plan, not working on running.

They are both small events - one for my kiddo's former elementary school and one for my daughter's cheer squad, but it's still super cool to me to be helping with the planning and organizing of these events I love.... Already thinking about all the things we need to do: get it on Active, come up with some cool theme, get the local gym/running clubs involved. This is going to be super fun!

In other news, I'm still running with my son. Last night, he was a little unmotivated. The C25K program is at the point where it's like, "Run 25 minutes," but we've been breaking it up for him to 12.5 run, 3 min walk, 12.5 run. It's still hard for him, but he's making it through. We leave for Disney in a week. Hope he's ready!

This past weekend, I got my first win in my division of a race. There were only 35 people or so, but it was still kinda cool because not only was I the first wan in my division, I was the first female adult. Two young girls, one 12, one 15, beat me, but hey, none of the other women did. Chris, my fiance, also won his division, his first win ever. My time stunk (28:56 when I'm trying to get under 26!), but there were still many positives, so I'm not going to complain.

One last thing for this blog, the brother of a boy my kiddos have known since kindergarten got diagnosed with stage 2 lymphoma this week. It's been hard seeing the pictures his mom has been posting and knowing there but for the grace of God go I. Really, this has brought into perspective just how blessed I am to have two happy, healthy kids. Everyday, I pray that this little boy has his health restored and that his poor mother is given the strength to get through this. Please keep them in your thoughts or prayers, as well. I know that there is not much I can do, but this simple request is my way of asking for help for them.

Thank you, Spark friends. You encourage and motivate me to be a better, stronger person. I hope you all have a great day! :-)

    I suspect your son may be worried about his friend more than he is the race!!! emoticon
