A quick three things for this Thursday morning
- It's snowing. Right now. Outside. At my house. On October 6th. CRAZY. Haven't decided yet if my 10 mile marathon pace run this morning will be outside or on the treadmill.
- One month from right now I will be in my starting corral for the NYC MARATHON!!!!! Seriously, I am beyond excited for this. Running this race is an emotional dream come true for me. AND I get to see my parents, family members and friends. AND Josh and I get a little getaway without any kids (which hasn't happened in....hmmmmmm.... a really, really long time). It seems like so long ago that I signed up to run the NYC Marathon for Team MEB and I can't believe it is only a month away now. I will write more about my goals and thoughts about this race as we get closer, but I AM SO EXCITED. (And I am just $140 short of my fundraising goal for Team MEB. Please consider making a donation here to help kids in need in the U.S. and in Eastern Africa have access to health, education and fitness).
- The little square on my calendar today is EMPTY. Empty! That means there are no therapists for Noah today, no field trips, no appointments, no meetings, no sporting events for any of the kids or Josh...NOTHING besides the usual stuff... running, child care, cooking, laundry, etc. Josh is playing hooky from work today and we are going to go to lunch and spend some quality together (with Noah too!)
