1. This weekend is SAVOR. It’s by far my favorite beer event of the year. 64 breweries with two beers each. Plus we get to go to a pre-event educational salon. Friday night we are attending a beer tasting RFD with some of our favorite brewers. The problem? Despite my love of good beer and my frequent discussion of said beers, I’m a serious light weight. Drinking two beers is a lot for me. So, I’ll be working hard at moderation and only trying those beers I’ve never had or can’t get around here. I still imagine I’ll be sweating beer when I run on Sunday. ;o)
2. Today I wanted to get in 6 miles, but I didn’t get up in time. So, I hit the road for a very slow, hot, sweaty, disgusting… three miles. It was already 78 degrees and super sunny and humid when I went out. Despite not pushing myself at all, I was totally wiped by the end. My plan is to get in another three when Beer Geek gets home from work. I have a feeling a lot of doubles may be in my summer running plan.
3. I need some clothes for the events this weekend, so Shoo and I hit the store today. Shoo decided to “help” me pick out dresses. Apparently he thinks I’m a street walker – every dress he pulled out was either garishly bright or metallic and they were all cut down to my navel. Each time he pulled out a dress, he informed me that it was a princess dress. Not sure I’ll ever want him dating the kind of “princess” that would wear the dresses he picked. The best part? When he pulled out a black and white floral dress and declared “Look, mommy, a COW! princess dress!”
And our Final Winner! Lucky Winner #13!
Both boys insisted on picking this morning. Shoo went first and pulled a name. I looked at it and threw it back in the hat and mixed everything back up. Then Jones picked. I had planned on just going with Shoo’s choice (it’s not like the kids read my blog LOL). As it turned out, they both picked the same person.
Winner #13, chosen by both boys, is
AngieB is an awesome barefoot runner, who I hope to meet one of these days when I head to the midwest.
