And Their Off!!!

We have had a busy week.

A couple of months ago we came by a free trailer. We like to take the kids camping and we had tent trailer that we used. It very old, had no amenities, but got us off the ground. It was great. We have upgraded to this trailer for a camping this year.

It needed work (what free trailer wouldn't?) Paul has been working on it for a couple of weeks. Fixing the broken door, ripping out the flooring, doing the electrical. All kinds of stuff. I did a lot of cleaning (as did Paul!) Steam cleaned cushions, scrubbed walls, the oven you name it its been cleaned.

Paul is taking the kids camping in it tomorrow. He is meeting some of the ball team at Wells Grey Golf course and campground to golf and camp (go figure) He will have tons of fun and lots of help with the kids. I bet he even get to golf.

(Just a little side note, The Giggle Queen kindly broke her finger playing softball for the Barking Cows. I say kindly because she is a golfer herself and is unable to golf right now. Our kids love her and will surely sucker her into baby sitting while Paul plays a round I am sure. I have to add that I think The Giggle Queen is especially kind because she was playing second base at the time the incident occurred. We both like to play second so we often switch in and out. She was playing second base while I was in Ca. Without me to switch off with. I am quite sure that if I had been home the bad bounce would have happened on my turn on second and that The Giggle Queen took for me. Thank you Giggle Queen!)

There is a point to all this. While Paul and the kids are having a great time camping I will be here doing this. It will be tons of fun. I will be running the second leg of the race, you can click on stage 2 if you want to see what I will be up to on Sunday morning.

I am looking forward to the run, we will have a great time. There are 17 teams registered for the race and of those 6 are from Kamloops. I think it is very cool to see Kamloops represented with so many teams and so many great people. It is fun to be a part of the running community here and very cool to see how much it has grown in such a short amount of time.

I will take my camera with me. I will be heading out of town after work tomorrow and I will back sometime Monday. I will let you know how it goes. Send good running vibes all day Sunday, its a long race!
