When Pigs Fly

Hell froze over.  However you want to say it, something very unusual happened early this morning: Tony went for a run.

As he was lacing up his sneakers, he joked that his hips already hurt.  Did Tony get a "runner's high" afterward?  No, he said he felt like he was going to die.  Rachael didn't help either.  She wanted to trot along, pee and chase squirrels.  I guess they'll both have to get used to the new morning routine. 

Tony and I are getting ready for a few upcoming races.  We're signed up for the Nantasket Beach Relay 5K on May 7; the Warrior Dash on June 25 (nice and relaxing wedding anniversary weekend [insert sarcasm]); and the Dighton Run for Heroes on September 10 (just me so far).  Tony's only motivation for training?  He doesn't want to embarrass himself at the Warrior Dash.  The course is like boot camp - it looks painful! 

Today is Andrea's birthday.  Happy Birthday, Aunt Andrea!!  We hope you have a great day :)


  1. You're doing the Warrior Dash!!! That looks like SO much fun!!

  2. I hope it is! Muddy, fun and not too miserable!
