Right now, my twin sister is on her way to the hospital to be induced with her third child. I wish I could be with her. The anticipation of this new life will make this be an agonizing day of waiting for news. News that everything is okay - that mom and baby are happy and healthy. This is a special baby that is being born today. My sister is choosing to name him Kenneth after my brother who went home to be with our Savior in August of 2002. Kenny was a great athlete who LOVED the Lord. This is a wonderful day for our family. Can my prayer warriors out there please say a prayer for my sister Janet this morning?
The other baby news is that Baby A turns 1 today. Brock and I are going to celebrate with her during the 4 hours I have her. I got her a new outfit and cute cars since she loves playing with Brock's cars. This year with Anya has been quite special. It was an awesome way to get a baby fix especially since I would love to have more children. Baby A is very special to me and I have loved every minute of this year. Tomorrow is my last day with her.
Speaking of figuring out how to get my run on, school is out for SUMMER starting Thursday. It will be more difficult to run since I will have two kids to manage. I am hoping to teach them to ride their bikes without training wheels so they can go faster. The negative is that my hilly neighborhood makes it hard to get them to want to ride a long time.
Last night I ran 3.7 miles with my friend J and we walked another mile to cool down. The steam rising off of the pavement after the rain was amazing. It was hot and steamy. We took it nice and easy. I was just aiming to get some miles in.
I wish running made me sleepy. When I run late, I tend to stay up late. I mentioned I have early risers, right? I mean before 6am risers. I need to figure out a way to run in the evening, but still go to bed early. Suggestions?
