I. Am the happiest mom. On the face of the Earth...


This is my oldest son Nick about one month ago, after taking his senior pictures.



















Hell has officially frozen over. Pigs are flying. The cow is jumping over the moon. (I think I stole that from TriDummy, but Shhh, what he doesn't know won't hurt him)

This is Nick today.
He got sick of waking up with hair in his mouth. Or so he says.









Side view. Pinch me I think I'm dreaming!













In other news Mike and I took what was intended to be a long run tonight. It was just over 8 miles, but felt like 800. I was not great running bud tonight. I had some er... shall I say... gastrointestinal issues that forced me to walk or slow down A LOT to prevent embarrasing moments. I only share this little overshare with the masses because I'm sure Mike will post his little Garmin picture and highlight the slowness, so I will just spill my guts preemptively.
He promises to punish me with another insanely long run tomorrow night as a chance to redeem myself.
I am beginning to wonder if I have any business attempting a half Mary in a week and a half. Fact or Prerace jitters? I don't know.

you'll do fine. a half marathon isn't really that long (i can't believe i said that) But, you'll do fine.

I fart my way through half my runs. It's the runs on the runs that scare me.

Blink - the runs on the runs!! Nice!! LOL Hopefully J-Wim a little noise is all youwere faced with!!

Oh, if only it were a jet propulsion problem...... I have no problems setting off the speed jets on the run.
It was more of a doubled over with gut pain on the side of the road kind of run.
ick.

Now you know I stopped and walked with you and would NEVER leave you behind in case you needed me to call for a ride or help you out. The run work out is not as important as you. Even though you lead people to believe I fell that way..it is not true.
Fart, poop, pee and repeat as needed and get ready to run a 10 miler in 90 degree heat tonight.

You will do great in the race. Add me to the farters (you don't want to run behind me).

I believe you are doing two races that weekend so best of luck in both.

J - remember you can walk as much as you need to - walk a little, run a little, and finish. Really. No shit. HA! Get it, no.shit....

Do you think that old man mistaking him for a girl had anything to do with the new hair do?

TAK said...

Whew...glad he cut it first...it was either me or him. We couldn't have the same hair cut forever!!!

J-Wim said...
