My husband is threatening to unsubscribe from my blog. He tells me it has been a week since my last post and he teasingly says that he no longer knows what I am up to. One week to gala day. We had our last pre-gala committee meeting at our house and had a nice time of it. I estimate that I spent about 60 hours over the past two weeks on the eight page program booklet with Silent Auction catalogue. Finally, this morning I sent it to print.
I took a day off from running yesterday. It is just not the time to push too hard but I did do 4 x 7 minutes hard today and had a good weekend of running with 13 miles on Saturday and 7 miles on Sunday. On Sunday I ran with a 19 year old from Namibia who told me that he doesn’t really run long distances. We ran through High Park up and down some of the steepest hills and his breathing never changed from that of someone walking. Well, he is after all 36 years younger than me but still. I expect more of myself and he certainly led me to expect less.
I look forward to having the time to blog and take photos.
