I have started making a list of new things I would like to do. I am trying to get back into an exercise routine after taking most of last week off. I ran about 3 miles today while Zach started a new gymnastics class. That will be a good thing each Thursday! So here's what I've come up with so far:
1. Conquering "The Beast" on December 13th. The runner's club is hosting its 2nd annual run here in town which is a difficult, uphill run for a total of 9 something miles (that's why they call is the beast). I will not be running the whole way, I already know that, but it is to raise money for the Food Pantry, which I know does a lot of good around town. If anyone wants to join me on this one, it's a $20 registration fee and all the money goes to the Food Pantry.
2. I'm thinking that 5 hours and 12 minutes just is not going to cut it for me. So I am hoping to run in the San Diego Rock and Roll marathon on May 31st. After having a week and a half to recover and think about it, I'm thinking it would be fun. I was thinking about training with "Team in Training" who raises money for Leukemia and Lymphoma because the first time was just for me, but now I feel like I should do it for something else. But, that brings me to my third thing on my list.
3. The Susan G. Komen 3-day walk in San Diego, November 2009. A walk for breast cancer has now become something that will be at the top of my list to sign up for. Cancer seems to be popping up all around me and I know I can't raise money for everything, so I am choosing this one as it has become closer to my heart over the past week. I haven't signed up yet, but am looking into walking with a former client's mom who has done the walk previously. So, you know I will be looking to all of you for support during this one! ;)
Those are my 3 biggest things I've planned so far. And in between all of these I am going to be continuing to spend time doing my everyday mom activities. We had a nice short week this week. Kevin stayed home on Monday with the sniffles and cough. He entertained himself at my work for 2 hours by playing chess against himself. I'm sure he will be challenging anyone who comes his way soon.
Zach and I are off to the store to buy some more clothes for these boys who are growing too fast. Kevin went to school yesterday with pants and a shirt that were way too small for him!
