Sorry for the absence... but I was away for a week, and now I am back again with loads that happen.

Last Friday I went to see a Knee Specialist. I am so glad I did that, now I know what to do. I have a typical 40ish (really???) knee. I do have injury to it( it show on the x-rays) and with  carrying the kids all the time it do put extra pressure on the knees and I do need to take care from now on.... No, running anymore ( sob sob, I like it alot) just cycling( hate it) and swimming ( love it, just not in cold water) ... and I did not tell him about the IMPI the next day.

So Saturday it was THE IMPI CHALLANGE. I did enter months before, did not have time or mostly energy to exercise for it. The last month did do hills( this save me) on the treadmill.

I think it’s our BEST friends( it mean alot to us) because they offer look after the twins for the day. Luv was sick the week before so he was feeling a bit down still so he decided to do it with me. As we drove off I wanted to cry to leave my kids ( first time ever for the day) but as we enter the impi-site I decided to just enjoy every single second of this day.! I needed this time away.

The week before I did think I am not fit for this what if I don’t make it, and then the old me kick in, There is a big reason why I want to do it( more personal after getting stuck in life) so come high or low water even I  need to drag myself... I will finish it. I never did an off road before.

The start was hectic with hills up and down that feel like forever, after that, we needed to swim though a ice cold dam with clothes and shoes... and after that 12km follow with loads of obstacles thing I never did before. The venue was absolutely beautiful !!!!! It was one of the races I enjoy the most, it was challenging and amazing!!! And the best Luv did it with me. I walk all the way after what doc said, and I think it was Luv’s ( hi is very fit) most boring race ever doing it with me, walking. But we talk and laugh and had so much fun!!!!

I have made it!!! all bruised-up and full of scratches...  it show I do have allot in me still!! Just what I needed now.

And when we got home the afternoon, the kids was lying on a picnic blanket in our friends arms chatting..... and they did not even miss us!!!!

I think this was what we all needed, thanx IMPI and FRIENDS!!!
                                 Just finish the race!
It was life and I decided to live it!!
Many people dress up!! here I already took an shower!!
Suro-sus and my brother also did the race the next day, here she is running to the finish. Go Sus!with brother cheering her on.
