A Few Things

I am writing a quick post to ask you all a couple of things.

1. Please pray for Tyler's grandmother, Mom Mom. She had hip surgery last week and is 91. We just found out some not so good news today. BUT we did just did Facetime with her and it was so fun! Tyler's mom teaches handicap kids and has her ipad with all of these games for the kids and Mom Mom has had a blast playing the games, too! Thanks for your prayers! She is getting her nails done tomorrow and is hanging in there. She is so sweet! :) She lived with Tyler's family when he was growing up so she is really special to him!

sweet mom mom!

2. I am running a 10k on Saturday and am SO not prepared. I am having a horrible pain in my achilles tendon and calves. I guess it is from running on uneven ground? Ideas? Do you have pain when you run? I am also going to need new running shoes soon, so those suggestions would be great too! I normally stick to Asics. What do you like?

Thanks for reading!

Ta ta,

A couple of days stretching the Achilles is the best suggestion that comes to mind. I had a similar-sounding leg pain a couple of weeks ago when I started a 13km and found it settled after the first couple of Ks if that‘s any encouragement.

Praying for her! She looks like such a sweet lady!

Oh no! I will add Tyler, his family and his Mom Mom to my prayer list for sure. And oh my goodness good luck this weekend! I just started hardcore marathon training today and my calves have been acting up too...maybe from the hills? (Do they have hills in Illinois... I am not so good with geography haha).
