I am really bad at coming up with titles. I'm sure, just like all those spam emails I get tell me, that I'm losing tons of traffic just from my lame titles. Ah shucks. Today I think the blog deserves a list. It's an easy way to just spew out the random happenings from the weekend so Imma roll with it. 1. This weekend was a step back week with running. Step back weeks are amazing when last week I ran 18 miles and this weekend called for a cool and easy 13. I've been doing most of my training long runs with the Pace Setters Fox Cities Marathon training group and this weekend was no different. Alicia and I ran together and she forgot her Garmin. I was sort of thankful for that because she started off the first few steps of running by saying "I don't know if I'm going to be able to do the whole route today." I think if she saw our pace for the first half, she would have wanted to slow it down a bit but it seemed like she finally got into groove at the half way point and we made our way through the 13 miles at a good pace. At one point Alicia had to get behind me so we were single file and she said "Whoa, you're sweaty!" She wasn't lyin'
I'm a weirdo and I am proud of sweat because it shows hard work.
2. Saturday night was sort of a bummer. I won 2 entries into a local race called the "Nite Lite" run. It is run in the dark with tons of cool lighting and stuff. Alicia and I had planned on doing it together just for fun but then I found out I had to work. Work was fine and all but I am still sad I had to miss a free 5k.
3. Sunday was a fun day. We ended the weekend by going to my parents, ordering pizza and letting the kids (and adults) run through the fog that was rolling in across the street. The kids thought it was the coolest thing and I thought it was totally instagram worthy. You can only see the adults walking back in this picture. There were 4 kids in that fog that you can't even see.
4. Today is Monday and I did this.
Rough life I live here. I love you summer. Please stick around extra long this year.
