Last weekend was fun

I haven't been very chatty online but I have some time on my hands right now (SPRING BREAK!) so I will try to catch up a little. V, J, and I are signed up for a half-marathon tomorrow so 2/3 of us have been following a rigorously researched (Google I'm-feeling-lucky) training plan for the past few months. Last Saturday was our longest run in preparation for the event. The air was brisktrainingrun11mi and the ground was slushy/slippery in spots (the break you see in the map is the Starbucks where we stopped to let my toes thaw) but the distance was no problem. trainingrte_11I'm sure we're ready. V hasn't trained at all and I have no doubt she'll finish ahead of J and me.

The next day was sunny and warm. Really warm! It was the perfect day for an alleycat. I know you know what an alleycat is but I will explain for those other people: it's a bike race/scavenger hunt through a city. This one was organized to celebrate International Women's Day so most of the checkpoints had something to do with this theme, which was an additional element of fun. We were dilettante competitors but we hit a few checkpoints and enjoyed the day. V wasn't happy when she learned we'd be riding on streets; however, she did really well and I think it was a good intro for her.

Everything else has just been school stuff. It's been fun, but I'm ready to be done.
