NDSC convention. But then I got distracted by a sciatica-thingy, Thanksgiving, and back to back to back Winter Festivities. Couch girl was winning. And while I'm not quite back down to one mile, it's close.
But Carrie, who I met in September [which she still refers to as an "awful" race but she doesn’t seem to be holding it against me], sent me a fun bit of news: Research Down Syndrome (RDS) now has a running program, including fun runs. Perfect! Motivation AND a good cause! And what location would better to host a fun run then at the convention of thousands of families they're trying to help?
I'm not going to extoll the benefits of running - if you run this one mile and sally forth from there, awesome. If it's not your thing but you come walk with us, just to enjoy the people and morning, and to support the kids, more's the better. This is just going to be FUN outing, probably from the hotel to the zoo through the park. It shouldn't be too hot first thing in the morning and what better way to justify that extra muffin at breakfast then knowing you've already stretched your legs?

Bet they had pancakes AND an extra muffin at breakfast.
So if you want to snag a shirt and hang with the cool kids, drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know this was the BEST idea you've ever heard of and can't wait to Race for the Extraordinary. If you know people who know people, or if you're on FB or the message boards, that would be super fabulous too (since I'm too shy & uncool to join either). The more runners, the more balloons, and the more muffins at breakfast. No limits.
