Friday I skidaddled down to River Boat Days (RBD10) to spend the night with Sheana (BFFF). I got to town, we gussied ourselves up, and hit the town. It is tradition to destroy eat many disgusting items of fair food between the two of us. This year we were classier than previous years, taking down some cheese curds and a funnel cake. Last year we devoured funnel cake, gyros, deep-fried Snickers (and I'm sure some others that I don't remember). There was also a bout with food poisoning. This year was much more successful only in the sense that I didn't almost die. :P
We got our annual powdered sugar mustache photo. And throughout the night thought it would be a great idea to take many cheesy senior picture inspired photos. Enjoy. :)
After shaking our tail feathers for a spell. :)
The fireworks show was a.ma.zing. So good! I have a soft spot for fireworks, but they were really impressive.
Tonight I had an easy 6 miler on the schedule. It had looked like it was going to rain for most of the afternoon, so I knew I needed to hustle otherwise I was going to get caught up in it. I changed and ran out the door. From the time it took me to change out of my work clothes and in to my running clothes, the temp had dropped at least 15 degrees, and the humidity had lifted majorly. Hey-o! It started to sprinkle and I was a-ok with that.
The first 3 miles were pretty slow and easy going. My iPod was dead, so I left it at home, and it was beautiful listening to the rain hitting the trees/leaves covering my head. When I got to the turn around point, the skies opened up and dumped down on me. Within a minute I was drenched, and for once it wasn't from my profuse sweating....score! There was a full mile where I was running in to the rain and wind and it was blinding me. As much as I love running in the rain, it was kind of a pain in the ass. My shoes were drenched and were at least 20 pounds each.
I finished up the 6 miles in 59:46.
