Pushing kids and my super cute little niece.
As a side note, I was getting all geared up for this half-marathon in October and running steadily and feeling good and pretty good distances too. But last week during one of my runs, my knee gave me some serious problems and pain. I thought that it would be good the next day, but it's not working out that way. I got some Glucosamine to try but it's not seeming to do much yet. I'm kind of decided that running just isn't something I can do anymore. I had knee surgery about 10 years ago and I'm having the same problems I had before the surgery. I kind of think that I shouldn't push it too hard and permanently injure myself so I can't do any physical activity anymore. I LOVE going to the gym everyday (which oddly doesn't bother my knee at all) and getting good exercise and making new friends so I would prefer to keep being able to do that instead of running and making it so I can't even do that. I don't know, I really really wanted to run this race and it felt good working towards a goal. It's frustrating and I don't really know what to do. Anybody have any ideas?
Also, tomorrow we should finish up our sprinkler system (thanks to some awesome friends who came and helped yesterday) and then hopefully grass this week!! Here's how I tried to keep the boys out of the way while we worked. I'm totally not a healthy mom, they're eating Popsicles and chips in their fort.
