1. Recurrent nagging (rather than serious) injuries have been haunting me lately - Despite the amount of Body Glide I am using, I always have two blisters (one on the inside of each foot) and one patch of skin on the underside of my breast (TMI, I know, sorry but at least I didn't copy Marlene at http://www.marleneontherun.blogspot.com/ and take pictures of it, since my injury is in a more R-rated place!) and one pulled groin muscle that refuse to go away. The groin is starting to concern me, it was so bad after my 7k/4.4mi run this morning that I was hobbling and having some problems with stairs, so I will probably be seeing a massage therapist soon. Don't want it to interfere with my newly paid for run in September!!!
2. Yesterday a FedEx guy came to my door bearing gifts:
I knew it was coming, but didn't expect it to be so large and filled with stuff! 35 pounds (15-16kgs) of marshmallows, graham crackers and 96 large Hershey chocolate bars, which according to Hershey, is a year's supply of s'mores making material! We'll be having a s'mores party very soon to thank our friends who voted and to celebrate our win.
3. As mentioned in previous posts, we are in the middle of organizing all the last minute details of our fun filled trip to Niagara Falls and Toronto. As a result, I won't be checking in probably from now until Thursday at the earliest. I am packing my gear and getting at least my 12k long run in, so you will have a running update, and I promise lots of fun photos to share!
Here's my bag and my stepdaughters, which I have pretty much packed (they both need a few things here and there:
Here's my ever so organized and prepared husband's bag:
Two things to note with this picture: 1) he takes a bigger bag then both of the girls in the house, because he wears more clothing then us, and he shops more. 2) all items currently in the bag are ones I PUT THERE!!!! He'll probably start throwing things in tomorrow night.... grrr...
So that's it for me for the week, hope you all check in next week for my post-vacation report!
