Roads are in, houses being built and sold. Very exciting for us Scholtens clan.
Cracking 5km run this morning at Lake Ginninderra. Paced it with a friend who is right on my speed and we went for it. Totally smashed both our previous best times to cross the line at 24:54mins. Loved it.
That’s me crossing the line.
Beat my old time by 56 secs, and came 27th out of 68, 10th lady, and first in my age group. Great way to start the weekend.
Today was the fun run that I dread! 10 kms of slow incline and hills, combined with the windiest season in the ACT. I told myself that if it was raining when I woke up I wouldn’t have to run, but I awoke to a beautiful spring day, so justin and the kids dropped me off at the hospital starting point.
The time went fast and much of what I remember is patchy, but I do know I was excited to do my first two kms in under 5 mins each. At the start the hustle and bustle to get going and find a gap in the crowd caused me to trip a girl over. I helped her up and on she went, but with bleeding knees!
The 5 km mark was at 25:40 which is fast for me, so I had to maintain speed. The hills were long and tiring right up to 8kms. Crossing over kings avenue bridge was a slog, but I really wanted under 55 minutes so I pushed on. The last 500 metres was rough. The end in sight but legs like jelly. Up a steep grassy embankment to the home stretch. Finish line there, cross over and check watch. Ahhhh, good time. Happy.
Made this for my beautiful friend Missy M.
It’s my Jessica Mary. 8 yrs old xxx <
Bacon covered meatloaf.
With homemade gingersnap sandwiches (ice cream in the middle).
And I found these great knives at Target. We have a continuous argument in this house about which knife to use certain things. Now it is written on the knife…can’t go wrong. And they are a great colour too. Love them.
Happy Fathers day to all you super duper dads out there. Xx
