-My race is next Sunday! Blue 5K hosted by the Carolina
Hurricanes. Fox is running with me and I'm so excited!
-Joined a race training group on early Sunday mornings. 1st
2 were great - intervals and pick ups. Hurt myself a little
over a week ago so I may not make it back before I get my-
self sorted out.
-Was working on consistently running 4x/week, 3 mi each
but having to scale back until my knee feels better.
-Work renovations make life interesting. Busy busy busy not
only with my work but with some data entry.
-Birthday trip - Fleet Feet and Ikea. Also stopped at Mary Jo's
in Charlotte. Like the WEBS of fabric!

night at PNC Arena! 32, People!
-Preseason starts in something like 12 days. I don't get to
follow as most preseason stuff is not televised or on radio.
Minor Penalties continued. These are the goalie penalties:
1. Leaving the Goal Crease - a. goalie can't leave the general
vicinity of his crease during a fight. If the fight is near his
crease, the referee will direct him to a neutral place to wait.
b. Goalie can't go to the bench during stopages in play with-
out referee's permission unless it's a time out.
2. Participating in the Play over the Center Red Line - A goalie
can't play the puck or check another player on the wrong
side of the center red line.
3. Restricted Area - Goalie can't play the puck behind the
goal line outside of the "trapezoid."
