Just checking in.

As previously mentioned we were in Baltimore from Thursday to Saturday morning. We had a great time as we visited the National Aquarium, the Science Museum, and a few other places. I think the kids liked the pool in the hotel just as much as all the other things we did.


Nothing to report. (edit 11/14) Swam in pool with kids for a few hours. But no real laps to talk about.


Nothing to report.


Thursday I got in 6.25 miles before we left for Baltimore. No running while in Baltimore (yeah there was a treadmill there I just chose not to use it. Sunday I got in 5.5 miles but I cut it off early because we were going to my nieces Baptism and thought we were leaving earlier then we did. So I was a little bummed that I didn't do 8 or more. But oh well. I got in 19.5 for the week and considering no run Friday or Saturday I will take it.


Hey I was on vacation for a few days so as you could imagine I didn't eat all that great. I will attempt to get back on the wagon this week and more importantly stay on the wagon.


We were happy to learn that our daughter no longer needs speech therapy. She was not enjoying having to go every week. Her brother and sister never poked fun at her but I think she was feeling different when she had to go. That's tough as a parent when one of your kids doesn't want to do something but you know it is the best thing for her. But the speech therapist and her teacher both agree that she no longer needs the extra help. She did great with it and really came a long way in the 10 months of therapy.


Well I am happy to say I think I am all caught up on all my back blogs. Yeah I had to SKIM some but I think I am all caught up now (I had 140 when I got back from Baltimore). I still need to leave some comments but all and all my "Google Reader" is clean.

20 miles is good stuff. That is typically my goal for every week is 20.

Welcome back! And ya still got in a respectable amount of mileage.

What's a Google Reader? Sounds like I would like that.

Science museum is my favorite Baltimore attraction! (Well, non-sports attraction, at least.)

Great that you hit almost 20 with travel days in there, too! Tough to exercise on vaca, especially a short one.

Dan, I don't know who the hell you are but I like what you're doing. My entire family could use you on their side. I may or may not rest as I had unexpectedly planned to do.. my compulsion is always to never stop.
Thanks for the good word and keep fighting the good fight.
