The girls are back home…

Recently, when Reagan prays, her prayers are approximately 8-9 seconds.  Tonight, when she prayed, she went on and on about Saint George, her bedroom- everything.  It was really cute.  Roxie said a nice prayer, but there was nothing out of the ordinary with hers (they are always a little long and interesting).

I spent a little time with Lucy, tonight, playing with her.  She chased the TV and cable remotes from one side of my legs, to the other.  As soon as she’d get within reach, I’d slide them other my legs so she’d have to move again.  I think I wore her out.

I read a few books to the girls, tonight.  They seemed to enjoy it and I did, too.  Everyone is now asleep and things are almost back to normal…Wendy is at the Twilight: Eclipse movie with the Langford girls, tonight.

This past weekend…

On Friday night, I biked in the Antelope by Moonlight 22 mile ride.  It was a lot of fun and full of mosquitoes, if you like that sort of thing.  It started at 10 PM and took us halfway around Antelope Island.  It was a lot of fun, but when I got home at 2 AM, I only had hours before waking, Saturday morning,  for the…

Cascadia Trail Series Gruesome Grizzly 8k, which is a horrible, horrible race that I’m sure I’ll do, again, next year.  It is the mean little brother of Sapper Joe.  You climb for approximately 345 miles (2 miles) up and up through dirt, rock-trails and eventually free fall for another 2 miles.  When you hit the bottom of the canyon, your run is over and you get a t-shirt before you head off to the hospital.  It’s great and like I said, I’ll do it, again.

On Saturday, I moved the lawn and felt like I’d pass out.  It was the 3rd event in some horrible triathlon dream sequence.

On Saturday night, I worked all night until about 5 AM, then fell asleep.  Woke at 8 and worked a little.  Went to church at 11 and left at 11:30 so that I could work some more.

Yesterday (Monday), I worked all day, then went for a 4.5 mile run.  It was very difficult.  I attribute its difficulty to the weekend and hope to feel a little more like myself tomorrow (I’m not running, swimming or biking, today).  Today is a day off).

Transitioning to a cold…

So the sore throat is all but a memory.  Although, singing to some Jackson Browne in the truck, this morning- it’s evident that I’m not back to full on that front.  My body feels tired, asthma is a breath away, runny nose in the morning…lots of mucus.  Other than that, I’m in a much better place, now that I can eat, speak and sing without major pain in my throat.  I’m not quite to the point that I can exercise without a problem…and Wasatch Back is only a few days away.

The sorest throat I've ever had

Starting around last Saturday (so about 8 days ago), my throat was so sore that I went to an urgent care on Sunday.  I was prescribed a ZPAK, which is an antibiotic.  After three days, it didn’t seem to be helping, so I went to another doctor and was prescribed amoxicillin and Magic Mouthwash.  MM was supposed to numb my throat (which it did) and the amoxicillion was a stronger antibiotic.

Finally, a week later I am not hurting so bad.  In fact, I’m almost better, throat-wise.  But now I feel like I have a cold or something.  Tired, asthma, morning sniffles, etc.  Just a heath update, is all.
