Dodgeball and High Knees

Tonight our local PTA had a parent / teacher dodge ball tournament!  I wasn’t so sure this was a great idea when I first heard about it, but it was a huge success!  So many groups formed teams and it seemed like everyone in town who was not on a team came to watch.  A group of my running girls formed a team called the Ball-Erinas.  They did great!  Brave girls.

The boys were so excited to watch the gown ups throw balls at each others – especially their teachers.  :)  They thought it was great that so many of their friends were there too.

Here are my girls in action.

There was an all girl division, all guy division and a coed division.  Sandy – these are for you.

Hopefully they will have it again next year.  I heard a lot of people talking about forming a team…

Jen and I decided to run in the snow this morning.  It’s tough to keep up with a training schedule with the weather we are having!  We strapped on our trax, but still were not ready for what we got ourselves into!

The trail had a couple inches of powder on the better spots and icy footprints on the worse spots.  I have never run with my knees that high!  It was a great workout and as usual we had fun chatting.  No one got hurt (ankles beware!) and we managed to get 5 miles in.  And guess what?  I felt so much better after I ran!  It’s magic!

And so pretty!

So, I am wondering, would you play in a dodge ball tournament?
