This weekend there was:
Lots of dogs having a rumpus time.
A trip to one of my favorite stores. Edmunds Hardware. Can't think of many hardware stores with this big of an embroidery thread selection. I always try to stock up on sewing machine belts when I go to Edmunds.
A final trip to the lake. Unfortunately, I did not swim or go off the rope swing, it was much too cold. We did take Penny for a boat ride during which she jumped out of the boat onto land twice while we tried to motor away.
More dogs at the lake.
And! A 14 mile race. My fuel belt is on its last leg. I'm planning to throw it away tomorrow at the dump. But being the cheap person that I am I just held it together with wire for 14.2 miles. Then after I finished I wore it around some more because my fingers were too swollen to untie the huge knots I had tied in the wire. Do you fingers get bloated after a long run?
Here is my before and after. I consider the race a success. I didn't fall, even though it was a trail race. I did stumble a few times. I made a running friend who I stuck with for most of the race and chatted with. I also accidentally asked a woman where her husband was only to hear a sob story about how he left her and moved to North Carolina with another woman, that wasn't successful I guess. I didn't puke, gag, poop in my pants (always a fear) or even cry. Total success.
