Saturday morning we awakened to a monster snow ice storm! This was actually awesome because our games got canceled and we all had the day at home together. This lasted about and hour before Joe was already getting Max ready to go to a boy's hockey game that was still on and Ryan and Reese were already making plans with friends. My house is generally grand central station on the weekends we're home so we ended up with 8 kids sleeping over. Only one threw up on my carpet so I would call this a success!
I was still feeling miserable about my long run the day before so I knocked out 8 miles on the treadmill during the evening. From Sunday to Saturday I ran almost 64 miles so I was happy about that. I also did a home weight workout Saturday afternoon. 3-way lunges are still kicking my butt the day after so Sunday morning I was hobbling around getting 11 kids ready for Sunday school.
Sunday afternoon both Reese and Max had games. Joe had a work emergency and he is Max's coach. He had to call another dad to help out with the game! This game was a big deal for Max. All of my family and his cousins etc. came to watch him for the first time! He was pretty excited and had some confidence rolling over from his last game. Anyway, Joe was not on the bench to help coach and the other two dads just opened the box doors and let the kids go. Max had 3 goals in his first shift. This was exciting and we were all cheering. He also had 2 goals on his next shift. I'm going to shorten this by saying the final score was 19-2 and Max had 12 goals and probably 5 assists. Now, 6 years olds know nothing about running up the score but Joe would have NEVER let him score 12 goals. He played center the whole game and the coach's just smiled and let him go! I was proud of him because he was so excited but actually quite embarrassed that we let the score get that high and they let him continually score. Oh well, not my place, and I'll just stay out of it.
Viking lost. I'll leave it at that!
I'm working all week and playing single mother so although I will still read blogs I probably won't have much time to comment or post! Super congrats to Meg on her awesome marathon and I'm still waiting to hear how Julie did on the half. My sister and my dad ran and indoor half in Milwaukee which was run around a speed skating track. ( I think the track was 455 meters or so) so under 4 laps a mile. My sister actually loved it and thought it was awesome for spectating and easy to time yourself as all you had to figure out for pacing was how fast you wanted to run each lap. There was also an indoor full. Laurie finished in 1:41:18 and my dad in 2:05. They had fun!
Here are some quick pics from the weekend:

I plan on running 8 tonight and then a tempo 10 tomorrow! Hope you all have a great week!
