Ever since I decided that I would renew my registration for the Mt. Hood 50 for 2021 I feel so excited and more motivated. I always do better when I have a real event on the schedule that I am excited about. It feels now a little bit safe to plan for a mid 2021 race. We haven’t been back to see family in Oregon since 2018 so that is also overdue.
Cannon was only two and Emmy was three months last time we were there.
I have 32 weeks from now until the race. 8 weeks of prep to get myself ready for the real race training. Then 24 week race specific training including a 50k that I would love to do an actual race for but we will see what the state of Covid in our state is around May/June.
Today the kids both stole my phone and took a total of 80 photos. In those 80 pictures I found these gems:
They were very good models for each other.
We decided to go for a hike together in the foothills, we also decided that Cannon is too big to ride in a backpack so all hikes have to be Cannon appropriate from now on. It was warm and beautiful. December here is notoriously mild. Please send me strength for January through April when our trails are icy and the highs don’t get above freezing.
Cannon has decided that the activity that he is most passionate about is rock climbing!
It’s too bad we can’t take him to indoor climbing gyms but until then we will have to find little rocks (and maybe a helmet) for him to climb.
Emmy loved climbing too, but her true love is running.
This popped up as “on this day” from last year.
This was last year at our neighboorhood Christmas party. The kids look so little and this is the first year since Cannon was born that we are missing the party and photos with Santa. Hoping to be back at it next year.
Anyone else finding new passions?
Missing any traditions this year? Trying my best to not be down about the things are missing and embracing a new way of doing things.
