Week in Review

| 14 Comments

I'm sore today!

Week in review:
Monday - rest, fun dinner and conversation with a friend, then walk around for some time (an hour?)

Tuesday - Halloween! Win 2nd place in costume contest for wrapping myself in foil and going as "leftovers." Spend the rest of the day in "gas station attendant" costume. Trick-or-treat with Spiderman (aka Ash), two Hello Kitty butterflies and one bat. Eat a little candy, but not much.

Wednesday - run 3.3 hot, lonely miles at lunch, thinking of a friend in Kuwait who was doing the same thing at the same time (well, I don't know if he was hot or lonely, but he was running at the same time). Also contemplate challenge thrown down by said friend - get in enough shape in the next month to kick his ass upon his return. What motivation!

Thursday - run 2 miles at lunch with Paki. Ahh, now that's what life is about. Get horrible haircut, then get haircut fixed (sigh, much better). Have nice evening with Johnny.

Friday - pizza party at lunch for a friend moving back to Chicago. Hill repeats at the park in birkenstocks with Ash. Ouch. Have fun at a concert at the school Johnny student teaches at with Johnny and Ash, laughing at how into it Ash gets. Send and receive multiple texts from Kiera, who is off for a cruise for a week. Volunteer to watch her kids so Mike can run.

Saturday - four miles pushing the stroller on dirt and pavement roads with hills. Walk about a mile with Ash on trails, contributing to the trail running group's trail work by throwing sand around. Go to children's museum to make sugar skulls and a mask for the All Souls Procession. Go to a friends house with Ash, so he can play on a tree fort and with chickens. Smile at how much he giggles while playing with a balloon. Eat yummy steak dinner, then walk around for an hour. Stay up waaay too late.

Sunday - late start to 7.5 mile run up Sabino Canyon road to check out the damage (road is finally open, woo hoo!). Push too hard on first two miles, walk most of last 1.75 up to top. Run down, stopping to walk about .25 mile up a hill near the end. Marvel at how my knee is feeling better. Enjoy the satisfaction of a great run. Stretch. Shower off and pick up Ash to go to All Souls Procession. Walk around downtown for about 2 to 3 miles with Johnny, Ash and jogging stroller. Get in people's way. Marvel at giant cool costumes. Laugh with Ash (he LOVED it). Crash at home and finally sleep.

Totals:
Running: 12.8 miles
Walking: 9ish miles
Fun: too much to quantify!

Wow - too much fun is right. Sounds like it was a great week. Nice costumes too. I'm not sure if you have Chipolte's around there but dressed in that aluminum foil you could have gone in on Halloween and received a free burrito (for looking like one - which bascially means be wrapped up in aluminum :)

Great week!

My biggest blessing/curse is that the oldest kid has developed a sense of permanance - meaning he notices when I filch candy out of his Halloween stash now...

What a week! You've got running, time with Ash and own fun for a glaze!

It sounds like a great week for all. Reminds you of what life is all about.

Great week Angie. Good to see you getting in a longer run and very happy to hear that Sabino Canyon is finally re-opened.

Your Halloween pictures were too much.

Now that is quite original - left overs! funny! You've had a busy week Angie! My favorite sound in the world: children laughing - especially my Gson!

As Borat would say, "very nice!"

Sounds like a fun week for sure! Neat costumes, too.

Hill repeats in birkenstocks. Interesting concept. Just don't break your ankle.

sounds like you and Ash had a blast!

I just ran across your blog (no pun intended)! Love the "leftovers" costume!

Angie, you're awesome. Thanks so much for the impromptu baby sitting. The kids definitely enjoyed it.

Wow, what a full week. You got to do a little bit of everything. Any further thoughts on the OP50 next spring? I know you were on the fence about it.

Later...

Houses are expensive and not everybody is able to buy it. Nevertheless, personal loans are created to support different people in such cases.
