1. Little League season is in full swing. (Pun intended). B and Zane are both playing this season and happened to both have games on the very first night. Zane's game really made one appreciate how much the 8 yos know about baseball rules, but was completely adorable. Everyone had a great time and he did seem really glad to see us. The red fez was a gift from the Blakleys upon their return from Turkey. And yes, if you want to turn lots of heads set 5 boys loose at little league with red fezs on. B and Zane were both second up in their batting rotations and both got thrown out at first on at least one of their turns. B's team seems to be doing much better at fielding and his game ended tied 0-0 in OT. It was a lovely evening and great to share it with our family, the Korenaks, Grandma, Granmmie, Granddaddy, and the Blakleys. LOTS of family support here and I love it.
10. The race is 5 weeks away. Sometimes I say that and it seems so near. Mostly it seems so far and I find myself counting how many runs there are between here and there. (Probably 13ish....) It looks like I'll be running a 10K leg, which is a little daunting, but I accidentally ran/walked for 6 miles on Sunday and it was OK. I mean it took a very long time and was very slow, but I did it and felt OK. It was the first time this training cycle that my feet have really hurt though so I remain nervous. Here's hoping I can keep up the program for another few weeks and that the rest of our team pulls through their various struggles. Our goal is to finish in less than 6.5 hours, which seems very modest for a marathon, and I think doable. I think we'll be able to finish it in 6 hours, but we shall see. I apparently am running the last leg so the later it is when I start the hotter it will be and if anyone has to run past the 6.5 hour mark when the course ceases to be fully closed to traffic it will be me. So, yeah, I'm nervous about my own body, but also about the timing. I'm sure it will all work out somehow, it usually does.
