Winter Inning

The Indian Princess people do the big winter event indoors, so they call it an inning instead of an outing.  I thought that was cute.  They filled the Dorton Arena with fun activities and we let the kids run wild.  So much fun!
Bigun wanted a rainbow painted over her entire face.  They used a marker, I still haven't gotten it to wash off.

Fun with a lemon head

Evil Genius and I going up the hill slide

She was so scared to come back down.

Waiting in line for the Wizzer

The Wizzer would spin us around really fast
EG and I on the Wizzer.  Fun ride!

EG climbing her way up

The whole arena packed with rides

We ended up with an extra ticket so Bigun brought a friend of hers.  Afterwards we all went out for pizza and back home for a nap.  Everyone (including me) was completely exhausted.  Evil Genius was totally fried, she could barely eat the pizza. And to think they were actually riding a mechanical bull earlier.

Sunday it marked 10 days since my last run, so I was getting anxious about getting a few miles in.  I ran 5 miles in about 41 minutes which is pretty decent.  I was surprised at how fast my muscular endurance went away.  Those 5 miles felt like harder work than it normally does.  The foot felt ok during the run, but then about an hour later the inflammation wonkiness started coming back.  Not fun.  But it really wasn't that bad.  I'm going to take it kind of easy for another week just to play it safe.  It felt good and strange to be back out there, like I couldn't really find my form easily.  I know if I have some patience here it will come back so that's what I'm trying to do.

You will not believe what Evil Genius did on sunday.  It requires its own post.

That was the best kid day ever! Probably a big sensory overload for them, huh?

Looks like fun, your girls are so darn cute!

Oh boy, can't wait to hear what she did.

Hope the foot thing gets better and is 100% soon!

Looks like a fun dad/daughter day! :)

The running will come back fast... ease into it!
