The pictures for the race were finally posted this morning. Now I know why I never wear tight shirts. Oh well. I was smiling because I was having fun and that is the important thing!
My son called yesterday and is no longer in Iraq!!! He is on his way home. There will be a ceremony on Sunday at a local Army Base and I will get to see him then. He will debrief there for a few days and then he will be HOME. I feel like I can breathe for the first time since July 10, 2006 when he left.
I feel just giddy I am so happy about this. I went out this morning and took a 5 mile run - it will be my long run for this week. I wanted to get that under my belt before this weekend so that I am not worried about it.
And then I showed up at work in an outfit straight out of a "dress for success" manual - for what NOT to wear to work if you ever want anyone to take you seriously. I am wearing green sequined flip flops, khaki capris, a hot pink camisole, with a brightly multi-colored tropical shirt over that! What the heck was I thinking? I just must be in celebratory mode!
