Flattened Out

That’s what running has been for me these past few weeks: a squished bottom half of a hamburger bun. It has the potential to be great but there is so much on top that it is just there – and not too enjoyable.

This is the dreaded Report Card week which means that I have spent the weekend helping my co-workers with marking, lots of marking and report cards. It means that I have been running – but on 4 or 5 hours of sleep to get the job done. And, of course, I can’t simply put my mommy-duties aside; the boys do have homework (and, sadly, lots of it this week), soccer, piano, dinner to eat, bathing to do…. You get the picture, right?

So, simply said, my running for the past few days has been non-existent. However, that will change tomorrow when my youngest, who feel asleep at 5:30 p.m. tonight will likely wake up bright and early tomorrow morning and be quite happy to go for a run with me before school.


Thank you to all of those who are supporting this fundraiser for Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, Canada. The hospital was there for us four years ago when we needed it. This 1K race for kids is a way to give back and help strengthen the foundation so that it can continue to help other families.

Between the dates of June 19th and June 27th, run 1K with your child, children, neighbour’s kiddos – anyone who is under 16 years of age. If you have a Fun Run for Kids at a race you are participating in, use that as your distance. Perhaps there is a Father’s Day Run in your neighbourhood that you can do with your family. After the run, send in a picture of your mini-me so that they can be put up on my blog. And, of course, one lucky, randomly drawn runner will win a prize.

Anyone under the age of 16 years (the same ages who receive treatment from Sick Kids) can participate. Simply donate $2 to our fundraising page and let me know that you are participating by leaving a comment.

WACKY WEDNESDAY is here tomorrow. Stay tuned…

  1. 5:30PM? That's nuts.

    I'll be sure to donate since the kids continue to promote no-more-jogging-stroller in favor of a new routine of run/walk/stop-to-look-at-birds.
