Marathon Monday, now with actual participation..

The third Monday in April in Boston is always Marathon Monday aka Patriots Day. This year, 2009, Michael ran in the marathon. Here he is on the course with a friend/running partner from the Liver Foundation team. They both ran for the charity.
Michael finished in 4:09:31, a steady 9 and a half minute per mile pace. I was able to follow him quite easily with text message alerts so that I could time it exactly when he passed me and get this picture of him and his running partner on the course.
Here we are at the end of the race where we met up. He started to be sore a little while after this, but I am so proud of him for finishing!

I am still in the midst of my Chuppah Knitting marathon and sock and scarf knitting.

I hope you are chugging along, I know I am! Here is a sock picture with a heel to prove it...

Here are some good pictures I got from Monday.

Here are the elite women runners.
Here is a woman dressed as Wonder Woman!!
Here is a guy in a pink tutu!
Happy Knitting!!!!

I have a dilemma....

The wedding is in the first week of September.

I have a lot of guests coming from the Portland, Oregon area (family and friends and family friends).

My 10 year high school reunion is July 31 in Portland. Sock Summit is August 6-9 in Portland, Oregon. I would really like to go to them both and the economically and environmentally friendly thing to do would be to stay in Portland for the week and see my family (Mom and Brother included) all that week. It would involve taking off a week of work right before the wedding-I have the vacation time, but still, not that responsible. I could always fly out and back twice but July 31 is a Friday so I would definitely miss that day and honestly flying across the country twice in two weeks for minimal time is not my idea of fun....

What's a girl to do??
