It's unlike me to let 6 days pass without blogging! I've been swamped.
This week at work has been crazy; homecoming week and all of the festivities. Both boys are playing football..every day for Tyler and every evening for Troy. It's crazy! Township meetings and County meetings this week. The Township meeting was in the way of my weekly run club run. No fair I say!
So yeah, here is the weekend and I have a few minutes before Troy and I leave for his football game. I was able to run 15 miles on trail before we leave. Topaz was kind of skittish in the dark, in the woods. It was funny to watch him walk apprehensively up to a pile of shadows, sniff, and then decide it was ok to pass on by. Funny!
The sunrise this morning was spectacular. Too bad my camera was home charging for the game. All pinks and oranges and beauty.
Today is supposed to be 78F! I think this may be the last beautiful weekend before winter begins to dawn upon us.
OK, so the Twins sure didn't make it very far in the playoffs, did they? Yikes. Just didn't have what it took. Guess I won't be going to the game on Sunday! Ha. Well, not funny, really.
Next Saturday is the Ed Fitz 100K. The Big Lake Run Club has formed a team again so they will be up there, I'll be running it solo. Alicia is going to crew for both Scott and I, yippee! She is an awesome crew, not to mention an awesome friend, so we'll have a great weekend. A bunch of us are staying at Kathy's in Duluth so we'll have fun all around. I know I, Scott and John are running; I think Eve, Duke and Cheri and crewing for John. I'm looking to beat last years time of 1153. Anything less is good for me. Hell, a finish is always good!
The following weekend a few friends of mine are competing in a body building/figure competition in Elk River. Two years ago I attended and was going to be on stage in two years. I didn't make that a priority, did I. I love lifting. I love a muscular body. I love the way it makes me look and feel. I think I'm going to get back into it, seriously. Now that the running season is closing here in MN, that's where I may be..back in the gym, pumping iron. Of course, I would still run..there just aren't any races to train for, I need something out there to progress toward!
Have an awesome Saturday! I need to get to a football game.
