I hope everybody who is running Boston is having a great Marathon!
Last week was a an up and down of emotions, one day I was happy and fine, other days I was irritable, then I realized that the anniversary of my grandmother's passing was in April 12, and that my body was adding extra hormones on my moods. All my runs this month are dedicated to my Grandmother and my nephew Mario.

My son's Baseball Junior League had practice 2 days this week, so we worked on homework. I cannot believe my son is working on fractions! He is in 1st grade and learning fractions!
Baseball practice, followed by Concessions stand meeting. Some days people really blow me away. When the kids get signed up for baseball, their parents agree to do 1 two hour shift at the concession stand during the season, everybody has to volunteer, they check the box, they sign the paper. So we are at the meeting where the Concession stand coordinator is telling parents that during our shift, there HAS TO BE FOUR adults helping out in the stand, and that IN ADDITION, her son and herself will be there to help out.
At the end of the meeting, the coordinator asks if there is any questions and a mom asked "So, you said you and your son will be here to help, so that means I only need to send two parents to help? because the parents won't want to miss their kids games". The Coordinator is a pretty awesome kick butt lady, so she simply replied, "All of our kids are playing, and no, you need to send 4 adults to help out." There were a few quiet chuckles in the crowd.
Zumba with Denise was really awesome! We did some of my favorites, Agua Vendita by Victor Manuel, and Limbo by Daddy Yankee were there among the awesome playlist.
2 mile run with Roger, with sprints. This was a strange day. I was very happy after zumba, but didn't feel like running. I wanted to go home, eat and take a nap. But made myself run with Roger.
Baseball practice. Rest Day.
After practice and picking up dinner. We got home at 8:50. Past my son's bed time. I need a better Thursday baseball practice plan.
After all the fun of Thursday, we overslept and My son was almost late for school. Ooops!
We went to Breakfast at Sofia's and then headed to Hershey for our 15 mile run.
The 15 miles went ok, the weather was really nice, but I wasn't feeling the run. But it got done.
|I saw the three ends of the Jonathan Eshenaour Trail|
Baseball Opening Day and 1st game. After all the fun we had not eating hotdogs or concession food, we headed out to Gettysburg. As it's only 40 miles away, we had to check the route and look for a place to eat breakfast the morning of the marathon. It looks very hilly. But oh well! something else I can't control, no use worrying about it. It should be an interesting run!
And of course, we walked some of the stores and I found an awesome hat... I wish I could wear it to the marathon!
We also found super tasty tacos!
Saturday and Sunday we got up early and made pancakes, they were super tasty!
We did 8 easy miles, with easy hills. We are now entering taper town.
Zumba - 1 hour
Other - 1 hour
