OK, it's official...i'm excited!!!!
Bring it, Chicago...you are gonna be my biaaaatch again.
And why???/ why the chance of heart. Cause i'm feeling the need for speed again...finally two runs of under 8 minute paces. Finally, a nice 3 miler yesterday at 22:41, ok not the fastest i have gone but each mile was faster than the previous, and today a great 5 miler at 49:00/ 7:48 pace.
Now, really i'm not talking about a bq or anything, but i think i may surprise myself this weekend. i think i have an outside chance to.....dare i type it?....a....fear not......just type.....PR??
Why not, weather should be good and i'm not even taking throwaway gloves with me...
but on to more important things like young boys and rockets.....Jimmy is a Tiger Cub this year and what a great way to relive childhood memories.....through your own child....without the nasty baggage of ugly childhood memories.
Now, while i do not, and most likely will not be donning a boy scout uniform as Den leader, what am i thinking? But the other den leaders do...and truthfully grown men wearing boy scout uniforms is a little odd. Sorta like baseball managers wearing the jerseys. i mean really picture Pat Riley pacing the sidelines of a heat game in a Heat uniform. weird eh???
but, moving on Jimmy had rocket launch day and man was it fun.....i think he had a good time too!!!! Except for the yawning part.
Oh yes the count down and the fun of hoping that the ignitor was correctly installed.
With cloud of smoke....yep...all things are good and i sure hope the parachute opens cause it may be an early day if it doesn't....
....yep it opened. yippee!!!! a rocket for another day!!!!
Anyway thanks for reading
and thanks for wishing me luck this weekend.
