Baltimore Marathon

Mid-October was the annual Baltimore Marathon downtown.  Tony and I ran the half marathon back in 2005, and it was a horrific experience for me.  I hadn't been back since.  Well, some friends at school signed up for the Marathon Relay and asked if I wanted to be the girl of the team.  Looking for some motivation to get back to exercising after baby, I said yes.  I ran the easiest (most flat instead of uphill) leg, but the longest distance (7.3 miles).  It was a lot of fun.  We all dressed up as Superman.  I even borrowed a cape from a student.  While waiting for my leg of the race to start, there were some of my students on the Cross Country team there, so I wasn't bored.  I was just so glad that it wasn't raining...  The 2 days before the race, we had the most rain I've ever seen.  Luckily, it cleared out just in time!!!

Here's me before the race:
And a pic of all of us after:
As I crossed the finish line, the Baltimore Sun news crew stopped me for a quick interview.  You figure they were there all day and interviewed a ton of people.  In the next day's newspaper, they printed 4 pictures... And one was me.  BUT it was a TERRIBLE pic!!!  Worst ever.  My colleagues were kind enough to post it all over school as a joke Monday morning : )

End of Summer

In early September, we had one last family trip to the pool and to the WV property before it gets too cold...
Scrunchy face...

8 months

Back on 8/31, Lydia turned 8 months.  It was much harder to get her pics...  Won't sit still or leave the "8" sticker on...  But, cute as heck!

Lake Gaston

Mid-August (our anniversary weekend), we met Mike & Cacile at Lake Gaston for 4 days.  They brought their boat and we had a grand ol' time...  Water-skiing, hanging out on the dock, lounging on the island, swimming, etc.

The night we got there, it rained like a monsoon while Tony & Mike drove the boat to our dock and tied it up...
Luckily, the next day was much nicer!  Lots of fun to be had!!!  Lucas didn't miss a beat water-skiing either.
The next day was much of the same...  I even water-skiid for the first time in 4 years!
This was the pic Lucas chose to show his class for his "about my summer" presentation!
Could've stayed a whole week for sure!!!
