So this past Saturday was the Race for the Cure. This is a special event for me and I look forward to it every year. Jen, Karen and I have participated since 2001 and though our team Sooner Girls for the Cure has grown and shrunk in size over the years, we still manage to show up!
Let me just say, it was freezing! Seriously, it has never been that cold for the race. I actually invested in long pants and a long sleeve shirt to run in this year. I did have to take my jacket off about 100 yards into the race, and managed to drop my ipod on the ground in the process. So that slowed me down a bit. I still managed to finish in 28:24, which is a good time for me. Not as fast as the 5k at the end of the Tie Dye Tri, but it was really cold and you have to weave in and out of the thousands of people that are participating! Something to be said about the smaller races, you don't usually have people with strollers at the 9 minute pace marker!
I did have a little pain in my hip the next day, but now on Thursday, it looks like that is going away. Thankfully, the Fall Classic duathlon is on Sunday and I would hate to have paid my $40 and not be able to participate.
Stacy has also asked me to join her in the Monster Dash on the 24th. Of course I am in. I hope I get to see some little kids doing the fun run in their Halloween costumes!
Looks like Josh and the kiddos are going to head up to Tulsa this weekend for the girls' and Jill's annual Halloween costume expedition. They just love that tradition. Josh will get to watch the OU Texas game with his dad, and I'll probably give the house a deep cleaning. Now we just have to figure out which dog(s) go and which one(s) stay with me. Here's hoping to it being me and Lucy this weekend!
So Lucy is going back to the vet today to get her stitches out. She had the hematoma drained from her ear two weeks ago and it really looks like it has healed up nicely. Thankfully, she didn't have to wear a cone so we didn't have to deal with the ackwardness of all of that! She really seems like a different dog in the last few weeks. We are thinking that her arthritis meds and the one for her heart are making her feel better. She has actually been sort of running around the house a bit, and she even wanted up on the couch with me on Monday when I was home with a sick Camy.
