The 'look' is very important to running your best race. Here we see IJ getting his 'game hair' ready.
All ready to go! Notice the hat (Duran Duran!) and turtleneck - winter is not far away! What you can't see are the first pair of wool socks I ever made. They worked their magic & kept my feet warm. The extra layers were in response to last year's frigid temperatures at the Jamboree. We weren't going to make that mistake again!
O.W. & I.J. pouring it on in the final stretch of the grueling 1/2 mile. See - they're running so fast the pictures are blurry!
The running jamboree is designed to help promote healthy futures of our kids. Kikkan Randall, a 2-time Olympian (Cross Country Skiing) and alum of East High (a former student of my program) was on hand to help get the kids warmed up & sign their bibs. Very cool! Be sure to cheer on Kikkan when she represents the U.S. at the 2010 winter Olympics. Could a gold medal be in her future? We hope so!
No new knitting news - just plugging away on my MSS3 socks. I hope to have them complete & in the mail within the next week.
Go U.S. women's soccer team - hopefully tomorrow they'll play a better game vs. Norway & bring home the bronze.
