Running thru Star Wars

My hubby is working sales today. I have lots of baking to do for Easter tomorrow. And I really wanted to get in a 4 mile run. My kids have already been to the gym’s kids room twice this week, my personal limit.

And I just finished my 4 mile run in 41 minutes. Here’s how I did it:


Yes, this is a picture of my humble garage. It’s been converted into a playroom/exercise room. This is where I do my walking in the evenings and some running. I’ve run through our VHS tapes…Top Gun/The Natural/The American President a couple of times each. Wanting something new, I grabbed our Star Wars Trilogy and put in A New Hope. We finished it last night.

This morning my kids asked if we could go in the garage for me to run while they watch the next Star Wars movie. So I put in Empire Strikes Back. They sit and watch, play horses and trains, color and play “sell”.

And while I run, I field questions like this:

“Mom, when are the AT-AT’s coming?”

“Mom, where’s Lea?”

“Mom, this is the funny part of the Star Wars Wii.”

“Mom, I where are the tantans?”

“Mom”, is Chewy fixing the ship?”

“Mom, is Darth Vader in the good guy’s place?”

“Mom, when can I play Star Wars Wii?”
