With everything going on at the Liebsch household it can make a person tired…
Grant felt the same way apparently, for the first time ever he fell asleep on the floor, poor guy!
On Saturday May 15th our family will be participating in a run/walk for celiac disease. Info can be found at www.twincitiesceliacwalk.org
Marybeth and many of her relatives (including her Mom, sister, niece, brother-in law, aunt, cousins etc.) have celiac disease and eat gluten free diets. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder. When people with celiac eat gluten (wheat, oats barley and rye) it causes a reaction which leads to damage of the small intestine. This can lead to many life threatening conditions.
We have decided to feed our children gluten free until we can afford the genetic tests for them. Since there is a genetic link, we would rather be safe than sorry. I have been eating gluten free at home (it got too hard to eat in front of Grant since he would beg for food). I actually feel great and have noticed that when I do eat gluten I feel horrible. I think gluten free can help promote healthy eating!
This past Saturday I ran the Trail mix. It was my first running race of the year and it felt good to race again. I ran the 50K team event; each team member runs 12.5K. I was on a team with Craig Cardinal, Travis Hinck and Dave Anderson. I ran my 12.5K in 44 min and 56 sec. That is a 5 min and 48 sec. per mile pace, not too shabby for not running very much this spring. Our team, Nordic Ninjas, won first place!
I didn’t get lost this year either (sometimes it is hard for color blind people to see the markings).
Marybeth and I suffer from horrible allergies…you name it, we are allergic to it! Well, now it seems our children suffer from allergies too. We are all so stuffed up and have had to close our windows and turn the air on.
