It Begins

Today (at 8:30 am) mom begins her quest for her second degree black belt. Actually, she has been working on it since she got her black belt almost two years ago, but today it's official.

Mom is in what is called the candidate class. That is the class for all the candidates for black belt, and all the black belts going for second degree black belt. (Like Mr. Karate, who just got his third degree black belt Wednesday night. Go see Millie's blog for a video of him running his form.)

Mom has to run twenty minutes solid, fifty push ups and seventy full sit ups. She will have to do this every Saturday morning for the next twenty weeks. Obviously with mom's shoulder injury she cannot do push ups, yet. The instructors know mom has a medical condition (as they call it) and they understand.


Mom can do the running and the sit ups. But mom will also be tested on material, and that's what mom will be working on big time. So while she is doing this, I will be doing this


Especially since it was only sunny for a couple of hours yesterday, before it rained. Almost all afternoon. Phooey.
