I hope you all had a nice, long weekend!
For a few months now my laptop has been on it's death bed. Every day I wanted to smash it to a million pieces and help it die a quick death, because it was soooo slow. Well, last week it finally kicked the bucket.
I have a friend who works on computers, so I gave it to him, and he sorta brought it back to life. Sorta, meaning it's working pretty well again and is slightly faster.
So, I have rejoined the blogging world.
This weekend I ran the Buffalo Chase 5k. This was my 3rd year running this race. It's a beautiful course on the Buffalo Trace Distillery grounds. They've been making bourbon there for over 200 years. You can smell the mash along part of the course. Not a smell I'm fond of, although I do like bourbon.
James-Etta and I got there about 45 minutes early, walked around the gift shop, used the bathrooms and then it was time to run!
Surprisingly, it wasn't even raining. I think it's been raining every race I've done this year. It was cloudy, but still pretty muggy.
And James-Etta got a PR on only 3 hours of sleep!
I then spent the rest of the day at an exciting family reunion on Jeremy's side. (You know those things are always exciting)
We had a long drive, so I stretched out in the back seat with my pillow and my Beats and tried to sleep. Unfortunately, sleep didn't happen.
Today starts my marathon training for the Indy Monumental. I'm super excited! I love being on a plan, and having a schedule to follow. I just do better when someone's tellin' me when and how far to run.
As always, I'm linking up with the lovely Tara for the weekend update.
What did you do for 4th of July?
Anyone else starting marathon training this week?
