This weekend was Stephanie's wedding. We had a lot of fun, and in honor of the event here is an old photo.
I do confess, it made me wonder if my little running group adventures are ending. Things change and go so fast before you know it, it is just not the same routine as always. before you know it, you realize you haven't talked to this friend or seen that friend in ages. I hate that! I hate losing those bonds with people...so I hope the adventures continue. I hope despite the fact our lives sometimes go faster than we can all keep up with, that we don't forget one of life's great pleasures, of those moments spent with friends.
It was the hottest wedding I have ever been to, as the weather here has been dismal. how does 98-100 with 80% humidty sound? yesterday's low was 80 with 80% humidty. A little depressing to think we have 5 more months of this. I find myself determined not to become addicted to air conditioning, and still go out for evening walks, and the bike rides that I decided to start, but damn, it ain't easy. I guess it is a little eaiser to tough out the cold (and I may eat these words this winter).
Didn't do a ton of running this weekend, with all the wedding events. That was ok, since next weekend is my last race of the "running season" (In Texas, roughly Oct-May), The Loop 30K Should be fun. I have a goal to keep up at least one good 3 hour run every 3 weeks or so this summer. so far the trail races have kept me on track, but we'll see how it goes.
I asked myself this week..."why in the heck do I live in texas and deal with this awful weather?" The answer is my friends, my home, and a great city with tons to do. I hope that is enough this summer. I miss the outdoors in the summer, as hiking just ain't happening. I have some plans to try yoga and maybe indoor rock climbing this summer to make up for it, but there is something to be said about outdoor adventures. But, I have always been inventive and not one to sit and gather dust, so I am looking to this summer to explore some new interests. Gonna start right now, and start reading a new book...more to come.
oh, and I almost forgot the best news of all. I found out I am getting a little niece or nephew in a few months! I can't wait!
