Good Morning Y'all! Busy weekend here.......a little running, and a LOT of walking. Saturday was an emotional roller coaster......We drove to Ashford to the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp which was totally AWESOME.....I was blown away. Only 5 of us team members showed up out of 90, but we got a tour of the camp and learned a lot about it. Alex was so motivated that she wants to help with my fund raising and one day volunteer there, and Conor said, "Wow....I want to come here!!" Of course, I said, "OH...NO sweetie, you really DO NOT want to come here!".....I tried to explain so that a 5 year old could understand that the kids who go to the camp are sick children. The clinic was amazing and was called the 'Okay...corral' ...there were horses, a 35 foot high, totally handicapped accessible treehouse, and SO much more. Ray was not very supportive of my plans for this marathon, but he was in tears after the tour of the camp and now he is behind me 100%!!!!
Then there was the football game! Nick and his teammates played Coast Guard and they were fully expecting to be slaughtered by them! They ended up being beaten by ONE STINKING POINT!!! HEARTBREAKING LOSS
Yesterday the kids were out of school and we walked around historic Old Wethersfield where we visited a church that George Washington visited. The church has an ancient buriel ground from the 1600's and we wandered around there for awhile (Yeah, Alex LOVES old cemeteries!) and then we went to a park for a picnic!!! SO much fun!
Okay......as for running.....I am hoping to get in a pretty long run today. I'm not sure how long......I'll let my knee decide that one.
Oh yeah, today is Ray's birthday......gotta bake a cake SOMETIME today!
Have a great one folks!
