Brotherhood of the Traveling (under)Pants

Todays run brought more hills and with that more traveling underpants. I did make an interesting observation, however. My drawers seemed to go the same direction as the hill. Up the hill, up the...well you get the idea. Unfortunately I ended my run with an uphill climb. My warm down was not comfortable.

A little over one week to go until my next race. On Nov 23rd I am running in the Peoria Park Dist Turkey Trot. It is a four mile run and includes a pretty sizable hill, thus the hill training. I am pretty excited about this race as it to be my first cold weather run. Fortunately I have had some practice lately in the cold. Maybe I will go extreme and start training in the freezer at work.

Tomorrow is a pretty big day for Nora. Her class is having their reading celebration. They get to have this special day because they have read over 500 take home books since the school year began. All the kids get to go to school in their pjs, bring their favorite stuffed animal, and spend the day reading. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

That's all folks!

I'd like to sign up to be in Nora's class. It seems she has a teacher who knows how to motivate the kids. 500 books since the beginning of the year is no small task!

Even though you haven't met, you and Eric will get along great this summer. He's a runner, loves Spider-man, Batman, Star Wars, etc., and would love to learn how to make beer. I'm constantly amazed by how similar you two are when I read your blog. Looking forward to the big reunion! It's great to read about what's going on. - Cousin Jodi

There used to be a guy living here by the name of ThemGuys. When the kids all moved out, ThemGuys moved too. I've often wondered where he went and now I know. He's living with that truck driver as that's exactly the type of shenigan he would pull. You can't believe the things he did around this house over the years. I could write a book! I'm glad to know where he is so I can keep an eye on him. I don't want him slipping back into my house.
