Once again we find ourselves at the day of the week called Thursday (o jueves en espanol), which on this blog is the day dedicated to sharing three thoughts. The
more random the better, even if you spontaneously erupt into another language (como espanol). However, if your three thoughts are related, nobody is going to fuss. This is a no fuss, no stress, no drama sort of blog.
Since I can, I'll go first.
1. Yesterday Mathews High School's boys and girls cross country teams beat Gloucester. Mathews is a much smaller school than Gloucester, so this is quite an accomplishment. Daughter ran her personal best, I believe she came in at 27:29 (give or take on the seconds).
2. Speaking of running, I went for a six-mile jog near Bethel Beach
yesterday. There were no mad dashes from
coyotes, however I did almost run into a goat that had sprung free from his pen.
3. Baby Sis and I are signed up for the Outer Banks Half Marathon in November.
If it is a fraction of the fun of last year's race, we'll have a blast. Yes, as strange as it sounds, it is possible to have fun jogging 13.1 miles--but only with the right people. Never underestimate the fun that accompanies an out-of-town adventure with Baby Sis.
4. My three things seem to be related to running and aren't random enough for me. Therefore I must toss in another thought for good measure. Remember that three is just a suggestion, one I rarely adhere to.
5. The Guinea Jubilee
is this weekend. For reasons I can't explain, I've never been. It's not that I don't want
to go; something always seems to prevent me from going. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective) Daughter's birthday celebration is this weekend, and I feel confident that attending the Guinea Jubilee isn't going to be high on her list of ways to acknowledge turning 15. I'd like it noted for the record that in spite of
numerous inquiries as to how she does
wish to celebrate, I do not have a solid answer yet. Maybe if I threaten to take matters into my own hands and announce we're going to Guinea Jubilee, she'll come up with something.
That's it from me.
Now it's your turn to share three or more things. Whatever is on your mind. Any
thing at all.
