Here is the one picture I have from the race Saturday. I don't think they had a race photographer, but a friend of mine sent me this one. I love how I am so focused on the garmin. We had to navigate thru walkers from the 2 mile race during the last stretch up to the finish line. A little annoying to have to weave around, thankfully there was not too many of them.
Saturday night we took the kids in for some more fair food and the rodeo. I could say they sat this good thru the whole thing, but they did through about half of it.
The other half I spent either entertaining them with self portraits.
or they took turns riding each other down the aisle. Luckily on one was sitting too close to us, since this entertained the kids for quite awhile.
We also stopped in and saw the traveling half size version of the Wall the Heals. It is the smaller version of the Vietnam Memorial. I found it so moving and by the end I was having a hard time not crying. All those young people. So sad then I would think about their moms hearing the news....too sad. It was really neat to see though and hopefully someday I will make it to D.C. to see the real one.
Sunday my husband decided to work so I was out a babysitter for a long run, not that I probably couldn't have found one I just didn't want to start calling people at 6 am so I could get out and run before it got too hot, I elected to spend two hours on the elliptical (I really need to get a treadmill) and call it good. I decided this wouldn't be a bad alternative, plus I caught up on some Desperate Housewife episodes I had missed earlier this spring. Three of them! A little sad it will be ending, but what more can they do!
I think my legs appreciated the low impact after the pounding they took going down the hill Saturday for the race. That said I can't wait to get out and run tomorrow :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

My weekend was amazing. I celebrated 23 years of marriage. It just better and better every year.

I really like the new header at the top of your page--it looks great! I think your 2 hour elliptical session was probably a great replacement, especially after your race!ReplyDelete

Great pictures! Missing a long run cause the hubby's gotta be at work in the am is always a bummer. I'm always scheduling my runs around my husbands job.ReplyDelete
Is that a new pic at the top of your blog? I like it a lot...ReplyDelete
Cute pics of you and the kids too.
I haven't ever run on an elliptical. Do you have to set it up for your own stride, height, etc.? There is one where we house sit in the winter and perhaps I will give it a try out.
love your new header!ReplyDelete
one word to sum up my weekend...."meh!" not good but not bad either.

I love the quote that you have at the top of the page! Good race pic - nice outfit - I think I'll be wearing the same one for my race this weekend!ReplyDelete
Great pic! I love it when I have a friend or relative who can be there and snap some photos. I get too focused on my watch too. Ha!ReplyDelete
Those kiddies sure are some cuties!! I have a Nordic Track treadmill. Sears usually has great prices on them.ReplyDelete
