I'm 59, retired RN, happily married, Nana to 8 beautiful grandchildren. Picked up running in 2005 at age 50, to stay healthy so I can take care of my hubby who has AVR and MVR in 2004 and End stage RF in 2014. We have 6 children (1 daughter, 5 sons) who are kind, hardworking, caring, wonderful people... Wish they live closer to us!!! :) :) :)
Slept in the downstairs guest room; got 5.5 continuous sleep...very tired when Karen's text "kicked" me out of bed! :p Ran with Karen and Wendy on rail trail. I was pathetically slow on the uphill. Love the sunny blue sky.
Got 5 hours sleep, albeit broken up, was the most I've ever gotten lately! :) Ran with Karen and Leslie for 3, then ran to pick up Amanda for 2, last 1 home by myself. Was windy and cold at the start but the sun quickly warmed things up.
