Saturday turn of events

Got up early this morning
Met running group at trail head.
Nice slow run with friends.
Fun stuff.
Got in the car to head home
Car won't start.
Oh crud.
Called Husband.
He came to look at it, it's not the battery.
Called AAA for a tow.
Waited
Got towed to pep boys
Walked to a local eating establishment for some food.
Walked back.
Waited
Waited some more
Car needs new fuel pump & fuel filter
Due for an oil change so do that too.
Called Husband for a ride home
Rescued and brought home.
Maybe car will be ready later.
Or not
Maybe tomorrow.
Sigh.

  3. That stinks..

    I am from Cliff, near Silver City...I was thinking about doing the Sweetheart Run in Albq on Feb 14. Don't know for sure yet, I am so new at running and don't want to push to hard. I have only been running for a couple of weeks.

  7. Oh no. Sorry to hear. Hope it won't be too inconvenient. Not sure what you weather is like at the moment. Otherwise I would have said: Oh, well. A good opportunity to ride your bike more. ;-)

  10. Ah poop! I HATE car issues! They make me crazy. Maybe too many years of driving POS (piece of sh&t) cars and having no money.

    I hope it gets fixed quickly and as painlessly for your wallet as possible.

    Very cool to go running with your run group!

    Thank you for your comment. Yeah, this is a big year I am scared to death.

  15. man car problems always bum me out, I'm not really sure why I think they are such a big deal...maybe because they are always a surprise.

  16. That's not fun at all. I guess the good news is you at least got your run in first. :-)
