Since making the decision to pull out of Way Too Cool, I have not run once. Days when it's raining and gray, it's really nice to not need to get a run in. Days when the hills and mountain are emerald green and it's beautiful outside, it's hard to maintain self control because I'd really like to be out there. But, I know that some serious down time is what I need right now, so I have been keeping really busy in other areas of life! Hanging out with these people-
Sharing a mid morning snack with two tables worth of friends.
Taking my boots for field trips...actually, this was not the plan, but there was no parking at the summit of Diablo, so I had to park down below and hike up, in this outfit. I got a few odd looks, but that's not really that unusual. Oh, the purpose of this outing was to dump Brian off at the top of the mountain and pick him up at Castle Rock a few hours later. He ran down Juniper to Summit to Rock City, down Wall, and out Castle Rock. It was a beautiful day for it.
|Not sure if you can see the pink candle on that table between the sofas. It is a watermelon candle and it's amazing. Thank you, Blake Shelton, for "lighting watermelon candles upstairs" and making us all have to search high and low for such a scented candle. It was worth it!|
Our old sofa's, chair, and foot stools were hand-me-downs from an old friend who had had them for years. They were white and green, checkered style, very ripped and stained. We had blankets over the cushions because they were worn through to the stuffing....they are now in the garage. I need to post a picture of that, too, it's been cleaned out and converted to a workout room/kids play room. Anyways, I needed to recover the foot stools so they would match the new sofas. Not bad work for a $10 curtain from Ross and a staple gun!
I'm honestly not real sure what my next move is running wise, other than when it's pain free, I'll run on it. Me not running WTC meant we could get a different hotel that would accommodate all 5 of us and the dog, and stay an extra night to make a weekend out of it. So for now, we are looking forward to getting out of town this coming weekend and having some fun!
Oh, also, my new boots are supposed to be here any day!!!
