Game Face

 

Look of pure awe, admiration and maybe a little fear....
 

HE can't hide it...he is having a blast!
 

Playing it cool with big boys!

My One and Only was drawn to be a PAC-10 ball boy a week or so ago and her LOVED it! Notice the long socks! He was sure they would be a huge hit. He took his brief job seriously and gave it his all. I know he had a great time, but he kept quite the GAME FACE while on the court. FOCUSED, DETERMINED, and READY!!

I am READY to get my game face on as well....my first day of TRAINING begins on Monday!! I have a huge mix of emotions and can't wait. This is going to be good!

Many of you guessed that Tall Mom was going to be my coach and you were.....drum roll....CORRECT! It is going to be an unique training experience since we have a mountain range between us, but I believe in Tall Mom and her mad skills! Thanks Coach Tall Mom for being so giving of your expertise!!

The funny thing that is so cool...is that she believes in me. She didn't laugh at my goals or tell me I was too much of a rookie she just said YES! I recieved my training plan and it is going to be great! She planed according to my family needs and that is much apprecaiated! This plan has me running four days a week which is one less than when I trained for Portland. I am guessing there is going to be lots of texts, pictures and emails as I begin my journey to my second 26.2!! I am so happy that I have all my support crew (YOU GUYS) to join me as well!

I believe in the act of TRYING and I believe in you!

So fun!! you never know what being a ball boy will inspire in him :) Maybe to play in the Pac-10 one day himself..

You WILL be great! The whole mountain apart thing...hmmm, will merge the gap here and there, when the weather is better. you CAN do this!
