This post is going to be too long. I just know it. It already is. But I should do it now so that I don't just never do it.
I saw on my brother's facebook that he registered for a half-marathon in October. He's a paramedic and my stepdad is a firefighter and this is the first race for that group. I went to the website to see if there were other events and immediately, before I could change my mind, registered for the 10km. It's October. I can do this by October. I am relieved to have a real attainable goal. I then emailed a few friends and one registered for the 10km and one registered for the half so I'm guaranteed to have people to eat after race pancakes with! And I roped them into it, so I'll do it. And there's a medal. I'm all about the bling. :) Oh and the health benefits are pretty good too.
Okay, that's enough for now. There is much more I want to write and I want to share a super delicious recipe I made yesterday but that will wait a few days. Yes, a few days, not a few weeks. And here's a photo of my biggest (smallest) spirit lifter, my niece. She comes over for supper every Tuesday with two other grown-ups and I usually babysit her once on the weekend. I can't say no because it's a great way to spend an evening!! Can't wait till I can pose her pretending to drive my car like Toonces the driving cat.
