A Few Days Off - Sort of

Today, I take my superstar, runner wife to the airport. She will be flying up to Maine for the US Track & Field Masters Championships. She will run the 2000m Steeplechase at 12pm est. on Friday, July 3rd. This is the event in which she won 2 national championships in 1992 and 1994. The 1992 championship was actually at the Olympic trials. Unfortuantely, the Steeplechase was only a men's even in the 1992 Olympic Games, so even though she won the trials, she had no event to run in the Olympics. It will be added for the women for the first time in the 2008 Games. She did compete for the US Team in the Goodwill Games in 1994 in Russia. She's pretty fast.

So . . . I will be a single dad of 4 for the next 3 days. Which means I won't be doing much work, but it's not exactly time off. We will probably spend lots of time at the YMCA pool.

Pray for Gina to run well and for me to have some temporary "mommy genes" for a few days.
