It’s Been Too Long!

I apologize.

Too much time has gone by without a post.  Somehow the time got away from me.  I promise to do better!

But since my last post, I’ve had some wonderful experiences.

Brendon leaves for the wedding of his good friends, Pete and Emily.

Our son, Brendon, came home for almost a week over the Memorial Day weekend.  One of his best friends got married and he was honored to serve as an usher.  He kept busy that weekend with dinners, a brunch, and of course, the wedding itself.  We enjoyed his visit, as we always do, and had a lot of fun, including running a race together.

In fact, since my last post, I’ve run three 5K races, something that gives me great joy.

On Mothers’ Day I ran in the Susan Komen Race for the Cure; on Memorial Day I ran with Brendon in the Brian Kraft Memorial Race around Lake Nokomis, a beautiful lake near our home.  Then last Saturday I ran in Lola’s 5K race in Waconia, Minnesota.  We had a beautiful morning to run–one of the few hours of sunshine we’ve had for quite a while!

I received this medal for finishing the 5K last Saturday, June 8.  This was entirely unexpected!  Had a great time!
