6 miles

I haven't said anything about this on my blog, because, well, mostly because I haven't said much of anything on my blog.  My silence does not mean that things aren't happening.

They are happening.

Still trying to figure out house stuff, yard stuff, maid stuff.

But really, who has time to figure out any stuff when there is always stuff that must get done now?

We had fun with friends yesterday at the Children's Museum. 

Because of that, today was a work day.  Sorting toys, organizing rooms, shredding paper.

Love it.

And running, because really, that is the point of this post.

Guess who ran 6 miles today without stopping or walking?

yep, that would be Noah!

I am so proud of him, he has been embracing running, losing weight and pretty soon we can be one of those couples that run together :)  Maybe we can even get matching jackets. 

But probably not.

We really aren't into wearing matching attire.

But then again, I never thought we would run together either.

The "running together" window may be short, though, because if he continues to run and to lose weight, there is going to be no stopping him.

And me, well, getting better and faster seems really hard.

My 9 year old just ran a 8 minute 5 second mile for gym class.

I can barely beat him in a sprint.

sigh.

I am old, and I am a girl.

Guess it is just going to be the way it is.

And do you know what? 

I am ok with it.

(but that doesn't mean that I am going to quit trying to win!)
