    Re: Happy Day of All Mothers!

    Well put, Immer!  You would not believe the number of men running around the mall today in search of gifts.  One gentleman in particular sticks out in my mind.  He was in the store, and he had all three of his sons with him.  I would guess they were all somewhere between five and eight.  And they were borderline incorrigible.  I would actually have been upset with him if he had been one of those detached parents who just didn't care.  Bless his heart, he looked like he was in shell shock.  As he was paying, I told him, "you know, I bet having today to herself is a nice treat on its own."  He looked at me blankly and said, "I'm going to have a nervous breakdown."

    Oh that is funny.  I think sometimes it is good from them (dads) to experience it if they aren't used to it.

    Re: Happy Day of All Mothers!

    Thanks Immer & Craig!  I spent today with my mom.  She just got an ipod shuffle to run with and loves it.  I warned her to be careful & pay attention to cars and stuff.  We had Lebanese food for lunch, looked at irises (flowers, not eyeballs), played Irish tunes together, and generally hung out. I was glad I could give her a big hug and tell her I was lucky to have her.  My college girls sent me mother's day cards. I hope everyone's mother's day is wonderful!





    Chocolate is very nice.

    That's funny, Lauren. My husband was not among those last minute shoppers. In lieu of a gift, he will be catering to my every whim today. I've gotten breakfast in bed, now it is off to the gym.

     

     

    Happy Mother's Day to everyone else, too!

     

     





    Dig deep, people, you can do it!

    I not sure how to quote  the message I'm responding to...still haven't got the hang  off this board, but I'm one of the other running "moms" (and I am an Oma as well) out there, so thank you for mother's day wishes and back to every other mom out there as well.

    P.S.  To the keeper of the MCM participant thread (I think Nita) - I'm in as well.  It will be my 3rd.  Have a great day everyone.

    Happy Mother's Day to all the kind and beautiful women on the board. As a young woman, you are all such an inspiration to me- juggling careers, families and maintaining yourself and your health with running. I hope when my turn comes to raise a little one (little ones?) I'll be as awesome as you all are. I feel so fortunate to have you to model and learn from.

     

     

     

     

     

    And an extra-special Happy Mother's Day to Nita because she's my marathon mom, always coaching me and cheering me on when it's needed most. She's so good at mothering, she's got some left over to share, and it is always very appreciated

     

     





    I do today what you won't, so tomorrow I do what you can't.

    To quote the message you're replying to, after you hit reply and get the box for typing your reply in... At the top of the box is a happy face icon. Just to the left of the happy face is a couple of word bubbles. Click that and it puts the quote into the reply box for you.. Then you have to click under the quote box and type your reply. Otherwise your reply ends up inside the quote box.

    Happy mother's day to all you moms on this board.  You're absolutely wonderful.  I'm having the time of my life in NYC, we're here with our daughter, our little granddaughter who turned three, our son-in-law's parents, and our son-in-law's mom's sister and husband.  Went out to brunch, going out to dinner, I had a good run, got a great pin from our daughter and son-in-law, a pea pod with two pearls, what more can one ask for, and not only that, we're all in good health.
