LEGS FELT GOOD, WANTED TO RUN, BUT NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY:(

Another crazy day, but the good news was my legs were ready to run. But, had to go on a class field trip with my second grader, so the run got shelved:( Bummer, but had a blast on the field trip. Actually met some really nice moms, and it was a joy to watch the kids. Oh, to be 8 years old again!!

Field trip brought us to the local fire department, bank, train station, post office, pizza pub for lunch, library and a few local shops. It was the community field trip for Social Studies. All of the above was in about a 1/2 mile radius, thankfully. Though I didn't do much walking, my legs were a tiny bit sore at the end, as the trip lasted close to 4 hours!!!! Lot's of standing:(

The only plans for tomorrow is to get my oldest her halloween costume. She wants to be bat girl. BR411 picked up the little ones costume last night. She is going to be Aurora, the character from Disneys Sleeping Beauty. Hopefully when the time comes, I'll have some good pics to share:)

And, last night my beloved NYRangers lost their first game of the season. To Buffalo, no less:( Oh well, knew it couldn't last, but hopefully this team has what it takes to get passed the first round of the Stanley Cup Finals. It's only one loss, and till last night they've been doing great!

So, if all goes well I'll get a good run in tomorrow, after laying low for several days after the half on Sunday:)

I foresee all the flexibility and not fitting in runs will come with being a mom. The rest is good though! sounds like a good trip!!!

Sounds like you had a nice time on the field trip.

When I was in college I did an internship at the HSBC Arena where the Sabres play. I always use to sneak away from what I should have been doing and watch their practices and peek at the visiting teams too.

I wound up running 2:36 and some change. Nearly 14 minutes off of my PR. No biggie, as you can't prepare for the weather conditions or how your body will handle it. Keep puttin money in the bank (mileage) for NYC.

Standing can be more tiring than running! But that sounds like a fun trip with the kiddies. I wanted to tell you I REALLY appreciated your kind words and advice on my blog-- and took 'em to heart, too. Hope you can fit in that run today!
