east coast support crew

coming home to philadelphia for christmas is the best. the parents are recent empty nesters, so all 4 kids home at the same time is basically the most exciting thing ever for them....and us!

on christmas day, i mentioned that i might want to go running...most solo missions over the holiday quickly turn into a family affair (like today's father/daughter spin class), so next thing i know, 4 of us hopped in the car and drove out to the trails along the river at wissahickon valley park. we all started at the car and agreed to meet back in an hour and 10. ...
post family trail fun:

then we came home for a post-trail snackie...fruit salad and whole wheat blueberry muffies baked by mom.

after that it was "trip planning". my big christmas present was a vineman70.3 entry for july 20, 2008 plus a few days enjoying good food and wine country in sonoma, ca after the race...registration confirmed, hotels are booked, and i'm on my way to my first half ironman...merry christmas, beth, now get your ass in that pool! ....
