Races and "Boo-boos"

Funny title, I'll explain.

This past weekend, my friend Margo and I ran a 4 mile race in Ft. Wayne. We signed up for it back in April, with the plan for it to motivate us to get in shape through the summer. Despite 1st trimester nausea and fatigue, I continued to jog/run and we both finished under our goal time. I don't know if I will continue to run 4 miles (Paul prefers that I don't) But maybe 1-2 miles with some longer walks thrown in... we'll see...

The other picture is of our little Rambo. Hannah tripped over her own feet last night and hit her head on the coffee table. She put a nasty gash in her forehead which Paul and I mended together with a butterfly strip, a bandaid, and a large piece of tape so Hannah couldn't rip it off. Today she is acting fine and is showing no signs of any pain. I'm just praying for no infection...I'm keeping an eye on it. Her forehead was dented in pretty bad right afterward but in about 10 minutes time the dent was gone. It was very odd but maybe it has to do with little kids and soft bones. I am also thankful for the thick padding she has on her forehead, something odd both our kids have been blessed with : ) I think that Hannah is going to be our accident-prone one...again, we'll see... : )


  1. Hannah, sweetie, you look mighty pleased with your "Rambo" bandage:(
    ....I agree with Paul...long walks, long walks~! Glad your run went okay~!

  2. congrats on your race time. and "paul's" time too, might I add! We are still laughing about trent breaking his own personal records by loaning out his ticket ( :

  3. I saw Hannah fall at Bethany's baby shower. :) It looked like she bumped her head in the same place. :) Kids. They are so cute. I told Margo that if you guys run that race next year I'd love to run it with you. That looks like tons of fun.
