I’m only calling this Hump Day Miscellany because it’s Wednesday and that’s what Wednesdays are for. I’m not doing miscellany, though – I’m giving you my 2 fabulous weekends (the last 2) in pictures because pictures are worth 1,000 words at least. Maybe more. I might use a few words, too because sometimes you had to be there to ‘get it’.
Saturday September 19 – no pictures. I ran 2 hours and felt reasonable (which is HUGE!) and then I went to visit my CASA kid. If you haven’t read up on CASA please do and if you have any time in your life at all (as in your kids are grown and gone or you don’t have any) consider becoming a CASA – it’s a very important organization that does critical work. You really can make a difference in the life of a foster child. Enough said.
So here’s my run – yawn
Sunday was a great, great, day. It was the day my new triathletes had been training for – the Tri for Real. I already wrote about this in great detail so here are the pics and a little video:
I didn’t race – I helped someone on the swim and then I ran up to the water station to cheer. You can see me at about 7:00 in that video but what you really want to do is start watching at about 6:20 so you can see our Tres Amigos de los Speedos who did the whole race ‘old school’ in their Speedos. Words don’t do that justice.
Aren’t those kits gorgeous? I love our team kit.
After the race it was off to ride Mines Rd. This was a pretty epic ride for me because I was with women in their 30s who are all much more fit and fabulous than I, it was hot, it was windy and we had to do some serious climbing.
We took pics at the junction
We finally got back to the park where we started and took cold, outdoor showers, washed and headed off to the Challenge Weekend BBQ a mere 90 minutes late (for 2 hour party – oops). Some certain people were very worried about me although I had spoken on the phone to others. When I got there I did a little speech to congratulate my newbies and then they speeched me back and said all kinds of wonderful things that made me quiver and blush and then they gave me a present:
The Challenge Series weekend was hard to beat but I managed to have another one that came quite close. Summary – Bad Girls Book Club goes to the beach. Friday afternoon I drove over to Stinson with a not Bad Girl (definitely a guy) from my club and we rode our bikes from Stinson Beach to Marshall and back and it was spectacular. Friday night was dedicated to hot tubbing, eating, drinking and for the rest of the group, Guitar Hero. I was shot and went to bed.
Saturday I ran for 2 hours including running up the mountain. Then we had a massive brunch, went to a sand sculpture event and then I hiked back up the mountain to take pictures, dragging a couple of bad girls with me. I’m hoping they will forgive me any day now. Saturday night we made a fabulous dinner and then played Guitar Hero. Hysterical. There was hot tubbing, too. Sunday we kayaked and then we just played at the beach. The weather was perfect.
I think the reason I skipped Monday Monday is obvious. I’m staying stuck in my weekends as long as I can.
