Rest Day Cubs Day

Well today is Friday. A rest day for Jason and Leah. This is quite good news since we were up late last night after the dentist appointment from hell.

Today is also opening day for the Cubbies who are back home at good old Wrigley Field. I'm excited to have the Cubs back in town because the neighborhood just gets busy and lively and I love it. It's especially fun to run by the ball park while a game is going on. We used to hope that we would be running by right as a home run was hit out to the street and it would just fall right in front of us. Then Jason or Leah would complete a spectacular catch and continue with the run. Now with the new bleacher expansion I guess it will be pretty hard to hit them out of the park anymore....but I was once at a game when Glen Allen Hill not only hit the ball out of the park, but hit it onto a roof across the street from the park! Now that is a hard hit ball.

Tomorrow is 5 miles at pace and then Sunday is 10 miles. These should go fine with just a small variation from the norm in that we will be running these in the evening due to me having shifts from 8am-4pm at the lab both days.

Go cubs! Is that Bartman guy still in town or did you run him out on a rail?

Even though the Cubbies beat my beloved Cards I'm happy that the baseball season is here. And, for your sake and my boyfriends I hope the Cubs win the world series as well. Sporting News did claim it was the Cubs year but we'll see.
