Yesterday my daughter had a mean stomach bug. We went to her pediatrician in the morning to learn it was just a virus and to let it run its course. By 5pm she had vomited a zillion times and was screaming in pain from the cramps. The doctor suggested I take her to Urgent Care. So off we went. They gave her a small pill that dissolved under her tongue. Within ten minutes she was a new person. Cramps stopped. She was able to hold down a sip of liquid for the first time all day. We got to go home. She is fine this morning. Now why in the hell can't they give you those meds at the doctors office? The doctor at Urgent Care was FANTASTIC. He checked on Audrie multiple times and was very personable. He gave me a prescription of the meds to keep on hand. He called it the miracle drug, originally used for chemotherapy patients. It's good stuff!
Okay, yesterday Doug was having me check my calendar for dates he might have to travel. He kept asking me about races I had planned. Then I realized...I have no 2012 races actually planned! Today I have been trying to decide what I want to do. Below are a few I'm considering. I haven't hit "register" for anything yet.
|Talia is wanting to do this race on February 11, because of the great swag. It's a bit pricy for a 5k, but you do get a jacket!|
|My brother has started running and wanted to do a 10K together. The Cowtown 10K on February 25, is my choice. I did great on this course last year, but I was 15 seconds over my goal. I need a rematch!|
|My parents are doing this race on March 3. I will do this at whatever pace they are going. However, dad if you are reading this...I think at least a slow jog is in order!|
|I'm only going to do one half marathon in 2012. I'm thinking about the Big D on April 15. I don't know much about it, so any input would be great!|
My other decision to make is a race where I volunteer. I really want to work an aid station. I think I need to give back! Especially after those nice people helped me out in the freezing rain at the White Rock Marathon. I'm looking for suggestions here. I also hope the entire gang will join me to volunteer. We can make it fun. I would also like to drag my kids out.
Other ideas are:
- The Mom's Run - On Mother's Day weekend. It will be three years in a row for Trent and me.
- I would like to do a Marathon Relay
