1. First up - Happy Birthday to our oldest nephew, John, whose 7th Birthday is today! We love him so much and loved getting to spend some of the weekend with him and his family. Happy birthday also today to Aunt Suzi -- the chef of the Rouse family! (Our family has tons of birthdays from Jan 20-March 9 so several birthday buddies).

8. We made it back the next day in time for Ro's 2nd birthday party. It was a woof woof themed party and full of fun, big dogs and little dogs, black and white dogs, etc.... It was also nice to see my siblings who I have seen very little this month!
10. For the first time in this training cycle I missed a run --- shocking I know given how busy and exhausting my weekend was. I was back on schedule today, but it is shocking how much I do feel it when there is a gap in my training. Sigh. It is going OK. As usual, running is a largely psychological game for me. That said, last Thursday's run was totally awesome so there will be good days.
This weekend I am celebrating my birthday with family and friends. Thanks to all you readers who follow our journey and encourage us in this crazy life. Love you!
