18 Miles and Give Away-One week left

Saturday I had a great run in, considering it was 18 miles. The longest I have ever ran at one time in my life so far. It felt really good until about mile 16, I wanted to quick so badly, but got in a mental zone, and completed the full run in almost exactly 3 hrs. (3:00.46)

I had a crazy dream about tornadoes the morning of the run, which left me a little uneasy, because I had a dream about a tornado ripping through my childhood home the day Ryan passed away. So, thankfully nothing out of the ordinary happened on Sat.

Sunday morning however, Max woke up with non-stop vomiting. Poor little guy. He's holding down liquids now, but feverish. So, probably staying home with him tomorrow morning as he recovers from the bug he caught.

So, I stayed at home all day and cleaned the puke, and baked Christmas cookies, wrap some gifts, did some laundry, and made some fresh bruchetta and some pretty good chicken with garlic pasta as he cuddled on the sofa and watched a bunch of holiday movies...sucking on pediolyte pops.

I have a couple of new team members, Andrew, and Joey, hooray! Have to mail out a bunch of letters again this week for the fundraiser, and continue to spread the word. Pretty tired from the run and got Max snuggling next to me so going to end this for now. Goodnight!
