So this is totally my kind of thing — I’m doing the Virtual Games – Track Start 2012.
This virtual event is being hosted by Run with Jess and will include the following events to be completed between August 3-12, 2012!
The 8 Virtual Olympic Events…
** You do not have to run the full marathon in one shot. Break it up into segments and challenge yourself to complete a total of 26.2 miles during the 10-dayVirtual Games (average of 2.62 miles each day). And yes, the challenge of this virtual event is to run or walk all eight events. Be A Champion!
You can find all the details on her blog post about it here. My only fear is that I’ll get a little crazy and try for the marathon all at once, cold turkey!
We had company! Hooray!! I made some Peach Pie Bars. I love to bake, especially when I have someone other than Kevin to force feed it too.
Of course, I had to send a plate of dessert home with my friend, Jake when he left!
Jake and I taught at the same school for three years when I lived in the Dominican Republic, and it’s always so good to see him. I’m so lucky that he has family in Parker so he’s generally around every summer/holiday! I have so many good memories with him in the DR!! Plus last night he saved our house from burning down. Somebody isn’t used to gas stoves any more and put a pot holder a little too close to the burner. Jake to the rescue!!!
Jake, by the way, IS SINGLE!!!!!!! Do you like the way I set that up by telling the hero Jake story? Lol.
Teacher, artist, bilingual, motorcycle owner, loves to travel, not a runner (I know some people would consider that a plus – lol), lives in the beautiful Dominican Republic. If you’re interested, email me. Lol. I’m not joking!! He’s a young 30-something! He knows me so I don’t think he put it past me to advertise him in my blog. But I don’t think he reads it —too much running and girly stuff.
Another highlight of our evening was that we got to use our Butter Boy!!! Kevin’s Aunt Julie is from Iowa (haha) and gave us one after I was so fascinated by it at dinner one night. I’m from the Midwest, but we never had one of these beauties in our house! Kevin is now asking for more corn-on-the-cob accessories like trays and those little pick things. Hilarious.
Guess who was annoying the whole time Jake was here?
Boyd Jose!! I thought he was learning better manners around people after spending a week with my family, but no such luck!
Have you ever tried a virtual race or event? This will be my first. Fun!!
Do you have any corn-on-the cob accessories? Seriously!
