just finished watching Josh run a 1706 3 mile, a new personal... on TwitPic

Today was a day that started early and finished late…but not with the usual kinds of busy-ness.  It was a day full of sports!  The day started with Caleb’s football game at 9 am and his Pee-Wee team staying undefeated with a 20-6 win.  I had to leave that game before it ended for a two hour drive to Sterling, Illinois to see Josh in his cross-country meet.  And Josh made it worth the trip.  He set a new personal record by running a 17:06 3-mile time and getting a medal for being a top finisher (see pic).  After the award ceremony at the cross-country meet I hurried back to Naperville so I could run the first practice of the season for my 5th grade YMCA basketball team.  I love basketball and coaching is like therapy…fun!  But I still wasn’t finished.  The last sport of the day would be the most challenging – trying to help my daughter Amy negotiate the purchase of her first car.  As this day comes to an end I think we got her a good deal on a good car (more to come).  All in all, a sporting day!
