It's Friday morning before a normally 'ho-hum' weekend. This weekend is different. I'm so excited! The weekend starts bright and early tomorrow morning with the YWCA Pancake 5K. I'm excited about a 5K? Yes I am. Excited and nervous. The event is the first for Danielle and I have the honor of pacing her during the 5K. It's the same course that I ran my first 5K back in 2006. Best of all, the proceeds go the our local YWCA -- and there's pancakes afterwards!
The second big event is Father's Day. It's really special this year because Ian and Lauren just got back from a trip to Texas to see their Aunt and it's been 3 weeks since we've last seen each other. Oh, Sunday is so needed. We don't have any specific plans but a trip to the lake or a nice bike ride may be in order depending on the weather. They both love riding and with Lauren's new bike she can finally keep up with her brother :)
Finally, I mentioned to a number of my friends that I'm giving up Gen-X in Janesville. It's time. I started writing a blog this morning, was a few sentences in, and just deleted it. I'm going to enjoy writing as Icarus Steve again. Marty KC gave me that nickname as I threw myself into running. I'd always get just a little too close to the sun. He didn't want my wings to burn :) Thanks for the many, many tips Marty!
Enjoy your weekend! I know I will!
