Running update:
July to date:
7/3  5.1 miles in 46:10
7/5  5.6 miles in 56:30
7/7  6.0 miles in 1:05:07
7/10  5.0 miles in 47:39
7/13  9.7 miles in 1:35:09
7/15  3.1 miles in 30:58
7/17  4.2 miles in 41:09

The heat and humidity of the past two weeks have really put a dent in my training!  90+ degrees with 90+ percent humidity is just too brutal—I’m running much fewer miles at much slower pace.  Thankfully it’s still early in the training season…

Jane update: 
Just signed Jane up for fall soccer (already!)  Jane started playing soccer for the first time this spring and was so excited to be part of a team.   At the end of the season her coach gave out individualized medals for participation—Jane got hers for being “keenest player”.   (Thanks Coach Mark!)  Before the season started a well-meaning friend had told me she had reservations about Jane playing soccer, for fear of Jane getting hit in the jaw where her tumor is.  I confess, holding her back from any activity has never even occurred to me.   I don’t ever want to tell her that she can’t do something because of NF.  And knowing Jane’s personality, I don’t think she would even take “no” for an answer, anyway :) 
More firsts:  Jane caught her first wave while vacationing in Cape Cod and started piano lessons this summer!
