LLRB 365: 2011 Week 30

This week just ROCKED.  Probably because a good portion of it was spent with Kirsten out in Nevada! Because it was such a great week, I had a hard time selecting pictures, so for some days, you get more than one.  Hey, it's my blog, I can do what I want :-)

Dropped the wonder twins off for a week at band camp - they got to be college students for the week!

Kirsten picked me up from the airport and the first stop was Lake Tahoe.  (Yes, it's as cold as everyone says it is - brrr.)

We went on a short hike in the Sierra Nevada's, climbing from 4900 to 5250 feet per my GPS.

I also registered for a little 1/2 Marathon while I was staying with Kirsten - The Disneyland Inaugural (I puffy-heart love that!) Tinker Bell Half Marathon!

Today was a great day.  Kirsten and I drove to Sacramento, CA where we met up with Beki (who had just finished taking the bar exam!!!) and Ashley for dinner at The Melting Pot.

I had to fly home.  So sad, but before I left, Kirsten and I went for an 8 mile run. I ran at 4700' elevation for the first time, in dry heat.  A totally different experience than the 600' and humid heat to which I'm accustomed.  I was treated to a beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan on the way home, but it didn't make leaving any easier.

That edge you see is Wisconsin.

We headed up to Central Michigan University (my alma mater - Fire Up Chips!) to watch the kids' marching band show and haul their tired butts back home.
It's amazing how much they learn in just a week!
Two tired kiddos - this was less than 15 min after leaving campus.

Since I missed my Saturday long run because we were on the road, I added in a 6 mile run today - with my new Garmin!!! Happy early birthday to me :)
BTW - I ran 89 miles during the month of July - my highest monthly total EVER!

Yes, my wrist is THAT tiny - I had to buy the velcro replacement strap so it would fit.

So, tomorrow is August 1st.  That means we have only 1 month of summer left.  What do you plan on cramming into the next 4 weeks?
