Little Updates

It feels nice to just write about little things sometimes.

I have had a really nice recovery from the 50 miler. I have been out running every day beginning Tuesday. Just slow jogs. I am amazed how much faster my recovery from a 50 miler on trails has been than my road 26.2 miler 4 years ago. If only we lived in a country where all running were on trails... oh, wait, I guess we will in two months.

Speaking of that, we had to find a way to deposit $10,000 in a Danish bank account as "security" for my residency permit. We'll get it back in 7 years assuming I find employment and don't end up in jail.

The Lorax jumped vigorously in the jumperoo yesterday for almost 20 minutes. He was smiling and laughing the whole time. Could he be addicted to endorphins after all of the running I did while pregnant?

He also is surprisingly enthusiastic about joining us on our bike rides.

That pictures of the bois on the bike is hilarious. What skill that little boy has! ;)

Do you get interest back on that $10,000? It's like an insane landlord security deposit.

Okay, I have to ask - how did you managed to safely balance him on that bike?!?!?!? (he's so cute, btw!)

Funny you should ask about the interest, Danni. We actually have to PAY interest on it. This is all part of an anti-immigration movement as I understand it.

Okay, mollyd77, I'll give away the secret of the bike. SR was holding him in place the whole time until the last second and then slipped back (to the left) just long enough to snap the picture. Then The Bois tumbled to the ground. Of course I'm kidding.
