Weekend sports update

The best matchup of the weekend may have not gotten the media coverage it deserved, and it happened right here in our hometown. It was the rundown between Tim, my husband, and Austin, our 13-year-old son. They faced off at the junior high school, and the match was to see who could run the fastest mile. I counted down, and at "GO" they were off, running in opposite directions around the track. It was pretty close as they finished each lap, but in the end, Tim prevailed with a 5:55 mile time to Austin's 6:00 mile. So Austin has to wash Tim's car. (Austin would have won $10 if he turned in the fastest time.) What makes this so fun is that they are both so good-natured about it. When my arm is healed, we may have the Mommy/Tucker matchup, and I'll be sure to keep you posted on that if/when it happens.

5:55 mile....that's pretty darned impressive.

The test will be fine. You will do fine. Stop worrying and focus on the outcome...you becoming certified and LIFTING up all the sagging butts around town.

Austin should be a little more careful about making bets. Using the official age-graded scales, he beat his dad, unless dad's about 50.
