Sporting Extravaganza

Tomorrow is a huge day in the sports world.

Nora Robinson is making her T-ball debut at 9:00a.m. and Chris Robinson is coming out of competitive retirement to run in a 5K at 7:00a.m.

So far I am not sure who is more excited about Nora's T-ball game, her or me. My excitement will probably make me run faster so I can get to her game as quick as possible. I can hardly contain my excitement as I type. This is going to be a long day!

Nora and I have been working on her throwing and catching, (we will have another session tonight) and Robin has worked with her on her hitting. My little girl has a pretty good arm and I think she is trying to be a power hitter. She gets under the ball a bit. You can expect to see plenty of pictures from the game.

As for my little event. I will have been running for 2 months on race day, and it will be my first ever competitive run. So, I really do not know what to expect from myself. I am just going to get out there, have fun, and make sure I do not hurt myself. I am running with a friend of mine, Josh who is training for the Chicago marathon, so I will have someone there to help with my pace a bit. That is until he gets tired of waiting for me and takes off. Wish me luck!

Sometime around 1992, when I watched Chris in his final Pony League Baseball game....I thought following my son's ahletic events was over and it was the final culmination of many years of wonderful memories upon which I could reflect until it was time to resume watching our grandchildren's events. Now, on one day, it starts again; and how glad I am to be here to watch my super star son along with his super star daughter.
