Race #21 of 2013Time to admit that I've been in a running funk lately. I guess after three weekends of big events I was just tired. My Corner Canyon 50K, Ragnar, and then Top of Zion Relay(which I still need to blog about-especially since our team took first place!!) just about did me in. All I wanted to do was just lay in my bed and sleep. Getting up early in the morning for a run was not even something I wanted to do for about 5 days. Thank goodness I have races on the agenda already signed up for or I would probably still be laying in my bed being lazy.
Thursday morning I got up early and took myself to the Provo Freedom Festival 10K. Our family decided we were just tired of fighting the crowds to watch the parade so everyone opted out of that activity. It didn't hurt my feelings at all. Trying to stake out a spot and spend the night is really too much work for not enough enjoyment. So I went and ran the 10K which goes right down the parade route anyway. I got to see all the crowds without actually having to be in the crowd.
I ran the race, walked back to my car and came home. Everyone was happy they didn't have to go. I hung out with Pebbles on the front porch in the swing and relaxed after my race.
last year's time by 3 1/2 minutes. That made me happy. 1:05:47.
The rest of my 4th of July was complete randomness.
The weeds in my garden were bigger than the plants. (seriously) So I had to get out there and do some major work. Too bad I didn't take a before picture. You can just trust me that it was an ugly sight. I've been enjoying some yellow squash and zucchini so far. I can't wait for the tomatoes, love them.
This is all that remains of the steps that were once there. Mark spent a whole day alone jack hammering them out of there.
After Mark framed them all out my cute daddy came and helped pour since he knows his stuff about concrete.
|My daddy also knows his stuff about restoring old vehicles. This is one of the many he has done. He drives it all over town and gets lots of attention in it.|
Mark taking a much needed rest and lunch break.
