family, running


In Seattle with the Miners, preparing for a family party this evening, to celebrate Nelle’s birthday (belatedly). Her birthday was August 28, the day before my parents’ wedding anniversary on August 29. Mia and I just made carrot cake and the Miners’ family recipe for blueberry cake.

Seattle is lovely. Blue and the light feels like it’s going to be cold, even when it’s warm. John and I walked to the overlook over the water last night.

I also managed to run this morning, the same path, about two and a half miles. I’m trying to train for the Rock n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon on Oct. 14 in San Jose. I’m starting at a place of being completely out of training, but the memory of running in New Orleans gives a small psychological boost to what otherwise would seem impossible.
