Well, this was a week I could not have foreseen...but not necessarily in a bad way.
We do what we can with what we have, am I right? And, we make the best of whatever situation we find ourselves in....well, at least I do LOL.
Biking was front and center this week, and Gustavas and Fritz went head-to-head for attention. Care to hear who garnered the most mileage?
Before I tell you all about this week's adventures, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 8:00AM (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
Anyways, here's what down this week:
|Stand tall amongst the weeds, and hustle along to beat the rain clouds chasing you|
|Yes, it was another hot afternoon...|
|When the sky matches your top...|
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair. Well, the weatherman was correct...the humidity did finally vacate the area (though it happened a good 12 hours later than was forecast). Friday's "cooler" temps had me feeling rather chilly at the office, so I was glad to have grabbed the raspberry cardi to keep me company. A pop of pink never hurt no one, right?
Did you catch the Field of Dreams baseball game Thursday evening? It was a major, big deal for the state of Iowa! There's already talk of making it happen, again, in 2022. The field is about a 90ish-minute drive from my house, and quite a neat place to see (though I wasn't in the stands for this event).
August 10th was the 31st anniversary for the hubs and I. Last year, we celebrated amidst our destroyed backyard, with no electricity, several hours after the derecho had hit. This year was much less chaotic.
Last but not least, we not only welcomed a new member to the family, but the hubby and I assumed a new title as the "in-laws." The oldest daughter, and new husband, eloped to Colorado and said their I-do's with the mountains as a backdrop. Yes, it's been quite an exciting week!
So, that's the latest in my little corner of the universe. Never a dull moment, and I don't think I'd want it any other way. By the way, Fritz had 78 miles, and Gustavas had 30.
How was your week? Any highs? Lows? Great workouts? Fall races on the calendar?
