As far as baby tricks go, he still hasn't quite mastered the sitting, but he's really close to having crawling figured out and he can roll and roll and roll to get at anything he wants. I thought maybe he was kind of early on the crawling thing, but apparently Jonny was crawling by 6 months too so maybe they all were.
As far as running goes, I think I've done a decent job of getting back into it. After Jonny was born, 6 months was where I really felt like I had really gotten into the running groove. It was actually on his 6 month birthday that I ran my first half marathon ever, the half that started all this crazy long distance racing desire. I'm not sure if I'm back up to the speed that I was then, could I crank out a 1:46 half marathon today? Hmmm, I'm not sure. I do know though that I could handle the distance, so that I'll be happy with... the speed will come.
Tomorrow, I'm planning to test out that speed in a 5K, it's been a while since I raced a 5K and I'm kind of looking forward to it. It is one of those prediction runs where you estimate what your finish time will be and then whoever comes closest to their time wins. You can't wear a watch and I'm terrible at pacing so it could be interesting. I don't even know what to aim for. This will be my first Turkey Trot though and I'm excited. I'm trying to convince my mom and sister to come do it too and maybe Emme. It is a walk/run so I'm pretty sure they could all handle the 3 miles (my mom is struggling with a knee injury otherwise it wouldn't take any convincing for her).
We're heading to Klamath Falls today to spend the holidays with family. It is going to be a lot of fun, I have been looking forward to it for a long time. Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays. I hope you all have a great weekend. Enjoy some time with friends and family and eat some tasty treats and take a little extra time to think about all the many blessings that you have in your life. Happy Thanksgiving Eve.
