Today, Norah is 8 months old, and while the past month has been full of fun developments, the most significant milestone has been her attempts at crawling, most recently, she's learned to get her knees up under her and get her tummy off the floor. She's most motivated to go after cans and water bottles like we've bribed her in the following video:
It's exciting to watch her learn this new skill, but it also means that soon she's gonna be a hand full! Still, though, so fun!
Anyhoo...aside from Norah cakes, tomorrow is the Turtle Trot 10K so I thought I'd outline a few preliminary goals for myself:
Pie in the Sky Goal: Beat the 60 minute time frame. McMillan tells me that I'm capable of finishing in 57:27 (based on my most recent HM finish time). I would be thrilled with such a finish.
Secondary Pie in the Sky Goal: Beat my previous 10K PR, which is 1:01:25.
Realistic Goal: Beat my time of 1:05:20 that I ran last Nov (3 months after Norah was born).
Base Goal: Have fun, save the turtles!
