One week from today I will be running in the Steamboat Classic 4 mile race with my sister so I did one last long run today – 5 miles. Instead of running circles around my tiny town I decided to do something new. I ran through the park and then out a country road until I hit 2.5 miles and then ran back home. It was nice to run over bridges and next to mellow cows. I did 5 miles with an average pace of 9:20. I am happy with that.
Earlier this week, when it was in the 90’s (now its the 70’s) we made a backyard water slide. Our neighbors came over to play. (Side note, G stalks the neighbor boy, looking out the window all day long to see if he is outside playing, constantly asking me what he is doing in house, as if I know.)
