The good news? Kathleen won 2nd place in the female masters category in this morning's Run Away with my heart 5-mile run in Spring, north of Houston. Our running club the Houston Striders swept all three places in the female masters group! Congratulations! The bad news? I was in 12th place overall and feeling strong when a left calf muscle popped and I was reduced to hobbling back to the finish line. Looks like I will be MIA from running for the next 4 to 6 weeks; will be spending more time than I care to, on the ergometer. My calves have been supertight since the half marathon in mid January, so this was no surprise, will just have to re-instate a regular calf strengthening/stretching program. Just when you think it is safe to get back in the water...
Other news: the boys will be back from Uganda early next week - they had some amazing experiences with gorillas and chimpanzees. We will be posting a trip report and pics soon! And I managed to snag a heavily discounted ticket to South Africa, so will be there from March 4 to 15, and will be attending my 40th High School reunion.
