PM: No running today, just a 2 mile walk at xc practice...

Ann got in a wreck today so I had to leave school for a while to pick her up, rent a car, doctor etc. Not her fault and the other driver was insured. Just a bit of whiplash and a totaled 2007 Hyundai SUV with 200,000 miles.

Parent teacher conferences again tonight until 8 pm.
