The best part about doing multiple races? You get multiple recovery weeks!!!! I took it easy this week yet again, with some biking and some walking before I got back to some low mileage. After much thought I have decided to take the plunge and make my goal race the 6/12/24 hour race in wichita in November. To get the 50K belt buckle, I will have to run my 50K in 6 hours or less. I really think I can do it on an easy course and this is a 1.33 mile loop. While mentally I think it will be challenging, I am hoping with my hubby's help as crew, I can get it done. SO this means chicago will just be a dress rehearsal for the timed race. I need to maintain an 11:35 mile per mile pace the entire 6 hours to finish and get that buckle.
Speaking of sports, we are done with T-ball clinic for the second year! Next year, we get to do the real thing! Overall, much better this year with him staying on the field and participating. If a drill was not the best, he would get very distracted, but who wouldn't. I really liked that they did more game specific drills this year to prepare them to really play. I have indicated that I am willing to coach next year and i hope tony agrees to coach as well!
We also celebrated Tony's birthday this week with some cake (hello 540 calories in one little dessert). It's always fun when we are the same age for a few months! Andrew and I got daddy a new Royal's shirt. Hoping it will bring them luck!
I tried for my sort of longish run again on sunday. Luckily, I woke up to nothing on the radar, BUT I totally forgot I was out of my breakfast fuel for long runs. Oh well, another experiment I guess. Other than the humidity, it was a good run. The dogs enjoyed the giant puddles left over from the rain the day before.

Have a GREAT rest of your weekend and Memorial Day! Remember the Fallen! I may not run Monday since it is a rest day but I will more than likely bike some miles in remembrance.
