And Dad is coming home from the hospital today. YAY! This is really really good news! He still has a long recovery ahead of him at home - but the fact is - he's going HOME. No more hospital. This is a good thing.
Speaking of good things - tonight is the opening of Beauty and the Beast at the Village Theatre (www.villagetheatre.org) and of course, Amber and I will be there to see the show. It looks to be amazing!
Now - as for me. Things have been holding pretty steady weightwise. I've made strides to not let this Oklahoma plane jumping throw me off track. Exercise though has been a little inconsistent. But I DID do my 5 miles as planned on Sunday! And I've been continuing to workout.
As we work on getting re-settled after the last two-and-a-half weeks, however, I'm focusing on getting BACK on track. This Saturday I'm doing another 8 miles. And hopefully fixing our treadmill this weekend (the belt slips) because the torrential rainy season is upon us here in Seattle. Flooding etc have been occurring, and although it comes and goes, I'd like an alternative for days where being outside isn't the smartest. Although I plan to do my long runs outside regardless of weather. We'll see how long that lasts - at least until it starts snowing!
The fact is - I'm going to do this. We hit a bump in the road. And it looks more and more likely that I'll be at the back of the pack, striving to finish in under 3:15. But finish I shall. And celebrate we will.
Right team? I mean - if I haven't given up yet - nothing can stop me! :)
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
