I just started training this weekend.. Nagging illnesses and injuries have kept me on the shelf until now. I couldn't even run 3 miles on Saturday without taking a few walk breaks. I'll head back out today.

I have to start training again. I fell off the wagon, and it really affected my energy level last week.

Congrats to all winners, (and ties). We won 7-6 this weekend with DD team. Scored the winning goal with less than a minute left. It was a fun and exciting game. We are 2-0 now and get to play my friends 1-1 team this weekend.

Training is great a helping with the I'm-not-still-at -WDW-where-it's-80-degrees blues.


A couple random thoughts from our trip this week.

1. Our Tamron lens really doesn't perform at the same level as our Nikkor lenses.
2. The Go-Pro was a lot of fun to goof around with. It took really good ride videos, but the sound its absolute crap if it's in it's waterproof housing. It's low light performance is pretty bad too. The fish-eye lens can make some stuff look pretty wonky too.
3. I thought the Royal rooms at POR we're only kind of meh. I like the resort, but if we were doing POR again we'd rather have a location closer to the main building and the pool than a Royal room. Our building of Royal rooms was about as far from the main building as you can get.

I wondered about the location of those rooms. Too bad about the camera, will you still post any ride videos?

Good morning everyone, hope all is well, DD starts soccer this week so I'm excited to see how she likes it but also see how she does with a busy week, Monday's are vocab class, Tuesday cooking class, wed vocab class Thursday soccer and Friday vocab class so she has something everyday but she enjoys all of them so she should be alright, not much new, slowly getting ready for our trip, decided to hold off on any DL plans until I see how DD does with WDW trip, that's it for now, again hope everyone is doing good

Morning guys.

I'll try to catch up on the last dozen pages later. Happy birthdays and anniversaries to all. Nothing too exciting here.

I'm hoping to get back in shape. I just realized our trip to WDW is just over year away and I'm the heaviest I've ever been. I don't want to be worn out after one day in the parks with several more to go. I'm going to try and get to the gym on a more regular basis and tweak my diet a bit.

Got a busy schedule going. It only gets worse. You can just blame yourself for it. I have DW blamed for signing dds up for everything. Add another $120 for fall/spring performance dance tickets.

You will be better off than I will. 19 more days. My ankle feels fine and back is getting better. Still, there is no time to be ready. Thankfully, we're doing the Halloweeen parties, so I may be able to survive with the night temps.

There was no scoreboard, but the kids all keep score. It was such a mismatch that kids on our team who have never scored had 3-4 goals each. Both teams were smiling after the game, so it didn't seem to bother the kids that much.
Some of the kids know the correct score and most forget the score, regardless of the team that wins or loses, shortly after. It's the parents that make it such a big deal.
