I need to post more


Kids had Karate and ordered Chinese food for dinner. So I wanted to run Friday night but after dinner that desire quickly faded.


I got out at about 7am in some of the best running weather I can remember. It was so nice I didn't want to stop. Due to time (Kim was testing a Kid that morning) I logged about 8.15 miles in 1:22:57 for a 10:10 mile pace. Showered and took the kids to Story Book Land while Kim worked. We went to Famous Dave's for lunch. This is where my weekend eating went wrong. Oh wait I already mentioned the Chinese Food didn't I? So this is where my weekend eating continued to be bad. Hey I ran 8 miles I can eat what ever I want... At least that is how I think sometimes.


Was to be a long day with many hours in the car. Kim and I went to Crestmont Country Club for a function for her family. Had a great time but we were out of the house for the whole day with traveling and dropping kids off and picking them up. And having to have someone come let the dogs out. Again wanted to run that night but decided to stay dry and not run in the rain.

For the week I am happy to say I was back over the 20 mile mark and back on pace for 1000 miles this year.


Rain all day and night. No running AGAIN (hey don't I have a membership to a gym with treadmills?).


So Monday night we had to call an audible at the line. See we had planned (and when I say we, I mean Kim) that we were going to take the kids to Dorney Park on Tuesday. Well with more rain in the forecast we needed an indoor activity, so we decided to take a trip to Baltimore and do the National Aquarium. We hit some rain on the way down but later in the day it cleared up for the most part. Kids had a blast and I think we will try to go back early November and stay a few nights in Baltimore.

Happy to say I did get out for a run Tuesday night. I logged 8.5 miles in 1:25:30 for a 10:04 per mile pace.

I uploaded more family pictures if you care to see. You can actually get a look at Kim in some of them.

Here is one from the Cruise. We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.

Boy am I a lucky guy.....

You gotta love Famous Dave's. Sounds like you had a great time with the family and got your running in too.

My kids are starting their third week in school. So, no parks - but we did see Rush Hour 3, good flick.

Yeah we don't start school until after Labor day in these parts.

Pictures are great - your kids sure like to ham it up for the camera!

Haven't been to the aquarium in years, but there is lots to do in B-More. Too bad, you coulda stuck around to see the Rangers slaughter the O's!

Nice pics.
