On Friday night our bestest friends, Tim and Brittany came up for a short visit. Brittany is running in the San Francisco Nike Marathon AS I TYPE THIS. She is pretty amazing. As I sit, fat and pregnant, drinking coffee (and no, it’s not decaf) she is RUNNING 26.2 miles through San Francisco! And it’s crazy b/c from our doorstep in Mill Valley to our church’s parking lot in Pacifica (a drive that typically takes us an hour) is almost precisely 26 miles!!! As I drove this distance yesterday, I was freaking out thinking that she was pretty much going to run from our apt to our church today. Wow. I give props to anyone who can run long-distance. But at least I can boast that Brittany, a marathon runner, used to be my running partner in college. JK. Anyway, I am very proud of her.
They came on Friday evening, I made dinner for us all, we chatted, and then went down to Woody’s Frozen Yogurt for a pre-marathon treat. Came back and played Sequence…the boys won. Slept in on Saturday, had our classic breakfast that we always have together…chocolate chip pancakes with p.b. and syrup, (fruit and eggs). And hung out for a little before they left to go register in the city and we had to get stuff together for church. It was short but sweet.
