My sister at mile 15 - still smiling!
Barb finishing the last leg:
And Lisa finishing the whole marathon.
This week we received a LOT of new colors of Ultra Alpaca - many heathers and wow - are they gorgeous. They will be online soon, maybe today... though I have just put up 6 new sweater kits, and I think I need a break from Photoshop and the computer in general.
The big relay is on May 27th and it's RIGHT around the corner! I am running 8.6 miles (legs 1&2) and I've been working up to it. I actually ran 6.2 on Sunday and felt great! Well, I felt great while running it... afterwards was a different story! Kalen is running leg 3 (6.5m) and Michele and Barb are doing legs 4 & 5 (each 5.5m). So as a part of my training, last night I went running with a group of folks from Fleet Feet, which is just down the street from us here in Essex Junction. We only did 3.1 miles last night, but it was a little faster than I normally go, and so it was a great workout. Fleet Feet has a free running group - one on Wednesdays at 6pm - for people who can run a 5k but are working up to a 10k, and then one on Thursdays at 6pm - for people who are just starting and will run/walk and work up to running a 5k. Do any of you want to join? Two or three of us will be doing the Wednesday group. It's fun! A number of the people who were there last night had just run their first 5k. It was neat to see how excited they were - they never thought they could do it, but with practice and a supportive group, they all did do it!
They are both adorable - and people are knitting for kids and babies like crazy at this time of year, so now we have four new models to inspire people.
