|Running through Buffalo Creek|
|Post Hogback run...I don't even want to know |
what that foam was from.
Thursday was awesome! Dan and I took the day off to play in the mountains. We went out to Buffalo Creek for a perfect 20 miler. It was slightly overcast and perfect running weather. Overall we just had a blast. By no means a fast 20 miler, but it was fun to have a little 4 hour date run. Some people go out to dinner, Dan and I go for long runs. Also good to get in my first 20 in awhile and feel good afterwards.
James and I flew to Wisconsin for the weekend for Parker's Baptism. I managed to get in a few runs on the Ice Age Trail which I always love. He and Parker were adorable together. I'm so excited to watch them grow up as friends. James has gotten so much stronger the past couple weeks in terms of sitting, eating, and interacting. For everyone that hadn't seen him in a couple months they were amazed at how strong he is now.
This week I also read about some new cognitive research being done on Down syndrome. Trailblazing at its finest...while I was trailblazing my way to the top of Green there are people out there trailblazing their way to a better understanding of what causes learning and memory impairment for people with Ds. Its unbelievable to think some of this research may have such a profound effect on James' life.
Week March 25 - 31
Miles Running: 48.3
Hours Running and Hiking: 9.5
