- Jonny got his finger slammed in the bathroom door last night shortly before bed time. He's a quick little guy that tries to get in places he shouldn't be before anyone can stop him. Well, technically, Emme stopped him this time. I was fairly concerned because, for a finger, there was lots of blood (sorry if you're squeamish) but other than a smooshed nail and some missing skin off the top, all is well.
|too bad it wasn't his middle finger... then we really could have shown it to you :)|
- I think for my long run this weekend I'm going to split it up. I plan to do between 7 and 8 miles tonight, then another 8 tomorrow morning followed by a quick 3 sometime tomorrow afternoon/evening. Although it won't quite be the same as running one long run I'll still get my miles in and a little practice for Hood to Coast at the same time. The final 3 miles will be in honor of Amanda @ Run to the Finish turning 30. She's hosting a virtual race in honor of the event. It's not too late to sign up if you're so inclined. I personally love being in my 30's. I think I can say that because I'm barely into my 30's. I have a feeling that once I start creeping up on 40 and have kids well into their teen years, I'll be slightly more hesitant to celebrate. That's not true, I'm always happy to celebrate, it's the aging that I might want to slow down a bit.
- I won a tutu!! I'm super excited. I won it from Barefoot Angie Bee and Glam Runner. When I told my mom about it she said, "like for Leona or Emme"... "No mom, for me... to run in!" I know she thinks I'm crazy. I am planning to get a yellow and green glitter one to show my Duck Pride when I'm racing on game days. I'm thinking that this tutu coupled with my stripey Oregon socks will be an awesome start to my race outfit for the Columbia River Power Marathon on Oct. 22nd that just so happens to be the day that Oregon takes on Colorado. I hope Heather (my running partner/marathon training buddy) won't mind all the looks/comments we might get. :)
- This weekend is the annual Scandinavian Festival in Junction City. We haven't been for a few years and plan to go. I think it will be a great time with lots of yummy food. We'd probably fit in best (with our blonde haired blue eyed kiddos) today on Swedish Day but since Dan's family is all Finnish I think we'll head out to the festivities on Sunday after church so that Dan can wear his Finnish soccer jersey and we can enjoy the Finnish themed activities.
I think that's enough randomness for now. I hope everyone has a fantastically wonderful weekend. Run happy!
