Three Things Thursday

1.  My wife was given two tickets to tonight's Oriole's game.  She has to work tomorrow but I'm off.  Guess who's hitting the ballpark?  That's right!  Paige and I are going.  It's been awhile since we had a "date".  We used to do it about monthly.  We started it when Connor was born so that she didn't feel left out with a new baby in the house.  It will be her first baseball game and my first Orioles.

Oh, the best part is they are awesome seats.  3rd row right by 3rd base!

2.  I woke up this morning around 4:00 with my toe throbbing.  Damn this gout!  I'm having to get my runs in mentally, and boy have I been doing awesome!  Today I completed 6 miles in under one hour.  It was a tough workout (for my brain), and afterward I had a good cup of green tea.  If only my real runs were so good!

3.  Tomorrow is the kids and me day.  Since I'm off, and about to head on two work trips back to back I'm doing something special with them.  What that is I don't know.  Maybe we'll hit the park for a picnic.

That is prime foul ball territory! Nice!

The toe thing is a bummer. What kind of NSAIDs do you take for it?

Adam - We had a few fly by us. One nearly pegged someone in the head.

Andrew - I alternate. I have indomethacin but rarely take it as one dose knocks me on my ass. Mostly I switch between ibuprofen and naproxen. They're both hard on the stomach so when I'm on them I also have to take acid reflux or that gets me. Ya gotta love side effects!

Ha! You're run sounds awesome - I wish I had an excuse for a run like that! :)
