|Thursday's run splits in half mile increments|
FRIDAY: We had bought park&ride tickets for the Special Shapes mass ascension Friday morning. Woke up at some ridiculous hour only to find that it was raining. Waiting about an hour, the official status was that the events were delayed, not cancelled. Decided to go for it. Arrived at the park, had something to eat, and got the word that the morning events were now cancelled. The field was open and balloons had the option to inflate, but no flights. We saw a grand total of one single balloon while we were walking back to the bus to go home. It ended up raining most of the day, which is actually a good thing as we really need the rain. However, it also messed up my plans for a bike ride. Oh well.
|Move along, nothing to see here, folks!|
SATURDAY: They have finally opened registration for the upcoming all-terrain race. Yippee!! Met my running partner at 7:15 to run the course. Since it had rained all day Friday, the single track was slippery and muddy. Lots of puddle jumping involved. The footing on the dirt levee road wasn't too bad, and we had a nice view of the balloons in flight that morning. When I got home, my shoes were a muddy mess, but it was a really fun run. Still very much looking forward to this upcoming race.
|Yes! Finally able to register|
SUNDAY:: It was chilly in the morning. Husband & I were planning a 50 mile ride and postponed our start time a few hours so that it would warm up. This ride didn't go nearly as well for me as our ride last week. Not entirely sure why. But we got it done. When I got home, my bike computer said 49.8, close enough for me!
