Where a kid can be a kid

After a chilly run this morning, we took a trip over the mountain to Altoona to meet up with Beth's friend K, husband T, and three kids. Our meeting location was Chuck E. Cheese's. Good pizza and good times. It turns out that I have a skill at lining up the scalpel with the joystick in the 'Operation' game and, once I get in a groove, I don't miss in the basketball. Mucho ticket-os for the kids. (Of course it was all about the kids, that's why I spent $10 on game-playing tokens).

On our way back, we stopped at the Indiana YMCA to get our lift in because it was going to cut it too close to make it the whole way home. The lifting has been fairly consistent for me two times per week since December. Hopefully this will make those leg muscles stronger and cramp-resistant come marathon day. For training, I did 17 this morning for a total of 56 for the week. Last week I did 52.5, so things are off to a good start with 16 weeks to go. Three hours or bust!

We've got a teacher in-service day tomorrow and we're giving midterms Tuesday and Wednesday. Then it's a normal day Thursday and a teacher grading day on Friday. This week is always nice for a change of pace. I'm looking forward to see how things go for the students from the first semester. Also this means we're already HALF WAY through the school year. Where did that go?

Halfway through the school year?? WOW, where does the time go?? Mild winters I guess make time even go quicker. When you get to my age it goes quick anyway. :)

I was surprised at your mileage total. That is really good. A great year of training last year has you all set up for a good spring I think.

3:00 or bust. That speed is easy for you, and now it sounds like you got the legs. Don't injure yourself by playing too many games at Chuck E Cheese. :)
