Last night the kids and I ran in the â€œ1st Runâ€ 5k here in town. It was a great way for us to start off 2018, with both Nora and Jonah running the whole thing. Noraâ€™s goal was to literally RUN the whole race, without walking which she did. Jonah ran a fast 9:34 pace which helped him take first place in his age division.Â
I also acquired a cool little â€œscratch-offâ€ calendar for the year put out by Tracksmith in New England. Itâ€™s a â€œNo Days Offâ€ calendar where for each day of running you scratch out the day and beneath the ink is a word which will make up a complete story as the year goes by. Now, I donâ€™t plan on literally taking no days off from running as that is not how my body works, but Iâ€™m looking forward to scratching off the dates as this year rolls by.Â
Happy New Year!
