Over the weekend I was shooting video (I’m a TV Producer) at a Jennie Finch Softball Camp in town. If you aren’t familiar – she is the face of fast-pitch softball. She is a wicked good pitcher and has an Olympic gold medal to show for it.
Obviously she’s an incredible athlete. And before I interviewed, her we were chatting. I asked her about the New York Marathon (which she ran for charity). She finished in 4:05 despite having a baby 14 or so weeks before the race! She said it was a blast, but that she also did a triathlon in NYC that she loved too. And she seemed quite amazed at my Dopey Challenge tale. So we bonded long distance race stories and became instant BFF’s! 😉
And B to the W, she was very nice and told the girls at the camp some very inspirational stories. Everyone at the camp was getting some great knowledge and having an amazing experience!
Anyway, the rest of the weekend was pretty good exercise-wise. I got in an 8 mile run, yard work, a long kiddie/doggie walk, and a very good yoga sesh.
And since the kiddos spent the night at their Auntie/Uncle’s house, the wife (who is also named Jennie) and I got to actually go out to eat! What? A dinner out? It’s been so long! Hahaha!
How bout you? Good weekend? Hang with any Olympians recently? If you have kids, ever get to go out to eat (children birthday parties don’t count)?
Love Jennie! She’s a Wildcat (boo!) but I’ll support any woman athlete from Arizona 🙂 Yay for getting in a date night dinner! Those are rare here too but we relish them when we can
