Grandma’s Half Week #1 recap

In honor of Mother’s Day, a picture of me and my mom (blog reader #1!):

Bad camera angle, I look like a GIANT.

Another active day with some quality time with the kids for Mother’s Day.  I’m loving the bike riding.  It is very cool to be able to get so much further, so much faster.  Went the other way on the Dakota Rail Trail today and made it to Waconia, which I’ve never done while running.  Fun stuff.

I don’t know whether to call this Lansing Recovery Week #3, or Grandma’s Half Marathon Training, Week #1.  I felt completely recovered, so I think we’ll go with the later.
