My son and I had a chiropractor appointment this morning. When it was my turn to get adjusted, my son was chit chatting with the doctor and the interns.
Son: Do you know what my mom can do?
Dr: No, what can your mom do?
Son: My mom runs MARATHONS!!!!
ME: (giggling because I can barely run for 3 miles)
Dr: WOW....do you know how far that is?
Son: YEAH, like 100 miles....and she gets all kinds of medals.
Dr: That is amazing! Are you going to run a race with her someday?
Son: I would like to, but she is WAY too fast!!!
Me: (Audible snort) BWAH!!!!!!
Things like that totally make my day. It is nice to know that I am kind of cool even though I am the "meanest mom ever". I am never the cool parent so I am enjoying my moment.
I really think these adjustments are starting to help. After my adjustments, I am always sore. They have been working out my hip flexor muscles with The Stick. OUCH. OUCH. OUCH! It always hurts but it releases it and feels better. Hopefully keeping up with these treatments will keep me going all Summer.
On a completely different note....
I finally got the final piece of the replacement Garmin FR60. In this post, I received the device and the heart rate monitor but none of the other components. Ughhh....after several emails back and forth to the company, they finally sent the footpod and the ANT stick. Trust me, this is the most polite and condensed version of this drama. I truly appreciate that the agreed to make the exchange and ultimately I am happy....but it was a long road. I took it on a test run tonight and IT WORKED!!!!!! I probably just jinxed myself but I am over the moon that I have something that actually works as package indicates. Now I will spare you any more Garmin talk (this is what happens when my OCD takes over).
