Hi friends and family! I am getting my root canal part 2 completed today and will not feel up to my chipper ole self for a piece. I will be, Lord Willin’ and the creek don’t rise, running more this weekend, potentially in the rain. I did, as previously mentioned, decide to suspend my adding 10% to each week for the next 2 weekends, but will pick back up with a 26-28 miler on the weekend that includes May 21-22. I will have 4 weekends after that to prepare, so they will be important. I will also be running a lot during the week… In short, I am Runnin’ Til I’m Purple on a slightly new schedule, but I will somehow be ready for the 37.5 miles of joy on June 19th :).
Update: I had a nice visit with mom yesterday. 15 minutes flies by so fast, it is hardly a visit, but it beats zero minutes I suppose. They told me that next week is Nursing Home Week, and visits will NOT be allowed while they celebrate. I have a better idea…open up and let us celebrate with and at you? Frustrating…
In the meantime, have a great, life-giving weekend. To all of the mommas out there, I salute you! You make a bigger difference than kings, presidents, sporting figures and the like just by being you. May God richly bless you and your work. 🙂
Here are the last couple of (sort of) Mother’s Day posts for your viewing pleasure:
