On the calendar, last Sunday was Father's Day, but in our house, we're celebrating tomorrow. You see: When I booked a trip to take the kids solo to see my parents in Connecticut, I neglected to look at the calendar. Thus, oops, my husband, Jack, was on the West Coast on Father's Day while his entire family was on the East Coast.
Jack was a great sport about it (as he is with all my travels), and it felt special to be with my 87-year-old father, who has seen better days, health-wise. But still I had some guilt--especially when I realized none of us had left a card for Jack in Oregon.
Perhaps as a make-good, I should give him a pair of 110% Flat Out Sox to ease the pain of his recurrent plantar fasciitis. He occasionally slips his stick-like calves into mine to enjoy the compression relief offered by these high-end socks. The compressive socks would help restore blood flow and ease muscle strain caused by Jack's strength-training workouts.
The winner of two pairs of 110% Flat Out Sox, and her partner's recent accomplishment, is:
Johnna Diedrichs: "Last weekend while I was out enjoying myself at Ragnar (Madison-Chicago)with other Mother Runners…my hubby stayed home to watch over our daughters. While at home he managed to complete all of his training runs (5 & 9 miles) for his 1st Marathon this fall as well as cut down a 60 foot willow tree in our back yard. He says…'All is a weekends work!'"
