HUGE weekend. Rish arrived midnight Friday, we went to Newcastle Saturday, and while we were on the F3, I got a text from my brother in law to say they were at the hospital because my niece was on her way!! :)
I got dropped off at my parents place, and got to muck around with my nephew for a few hours :)
We wore funnels as hats, tinman style
Had rides in the washing basket.
Did some gardening
Including a little repotting.
Had a tea party with the empty mugs
Build a tower and didn’t break anything
Then it was time to head to the hospital with my parents and meet little Ezri Rae…
Born 1:20pm, August 13, 52cm, 7lb 3.
A serious little thing, Ezri is like Ezra, and means “helper”.
Perfect timing, two days before due date. All are going well, but tired, I’m told.
After time spent with family, and a later than realised dinner with Rish’s side, we got back to Sydney after midnight… with the alarm set for the big race… City 2 Surf!
What a day! I arrived at the starting point just after my group (blue) started… not to worry it took 10 mins to get to the start anyway!
What awesome atmosphere. I may have been running alone, but I never really was!
Things got tough at the end of hearbreak hill, had to walk for a bit, but then finished strong, and got in around my estimated time – by my time I was in in 1 hour 47 minutes. Only an hour more than the winner ;)
I’m hurting now!!!!! :D
