A lot of them are charity runners. And then there ae the ones who are pushing a stroller of some sort. Those are the ones I would be worried about. I am also curious to see how the wheelchair entrants do. They may just fair better as they are the first ones out before the temps start climbing. I will listento the noon news to find out who won and then change the station quickly.

Got done with work about 5:00 then I had to get up to church for a meeting. It was nice to get home dh had a nice supper made, now he's doing the dishes. It feels good to be sitting with my feet up but I feel a little guilty.

{{{{{Alix}}}}}

I am catching up on last night's Canada's Got Talent so I can watch the elimination round live tonight. I should really watch the first show live because when I watch it the next day I feel bad that I didn't vote for someone!

I am also finishing my homework for tomorrow. I did my 10 minutes of cardio, my stretches, breathing exercises and just have to finish the reading - on memory and concentration!

Finally, just remembered I need to do a load of laundry for us both tomorrow.

Never a dull moment.....it is so GREAT to be able to be busy, and yet I am still taking care to pace myself. The Motto of our pain management program is "No pain is gain!" Think about it for a minute .
