Today is a BUSY day!!!!!! Had a 10 mile run this morning, and I needed to start EARLY!!!!! So, I showed up at the local meeting place praying that someone would too be running at 6am..... and lucky for me, there were 4 others!!!! YAY!!!!! 10 miles flew with company!!! Conversation always makes a run better especially with AWESOME people like this morning!!!!!!

This was also a "test" run to see if the new kicks that I bought a month ago were going to be "the ones" for the full marathon in one month!!!! I have been running in them periodically on treadmill runs trying to break them in.... and today ran a long run in them and guess what........ the kicks were fabulous!!!! So, one important part of the event day apparel has been selected! :)
After the run, it was back home to shower and get ready........ coming to and from town takes 40 min from my house!!!!! Anyway, my son has a Pine Wood Derby race today!!!!! Below is his car!!!! Yesterday we weighted in and were found to be under weight!!! UGH!!!!! This was at 5:30pm and the check in was from 5:30-7:30.... so, I was then off to my husband to paint and add weights!!!! Back to the weigh in and PERFECT!!! YAY !!! And all before 7:30pm!!!! Let me tell you, this derby thing is SERIOUS!!! Some were over weight...... no problem, people came with drills in tow to drill out pieces of wood to make their cars lighter!!!! WhoA!!!! Were talking BIG time racing here!
I think all the cars pictured below look AWESOME!!!!!!! Can't wait to see them race! There will be others, these were the ones that were there when Ben and I were there.......
Yesterday, my son's school had a luncheon.... Granny Jo came to eat with us!!!! Good times! :)
And, I just wonder, how did the school know I would be carb loading!!! SCORE!!!!!!
Gotta run....... after derby racing, I am off to Tallahassee with my friend Arlene to run the half marathon there tomorrow!!!!
