Oh what a weekend

Boy oh boy. Just seven days left until the Marine Corps Marathon and thank goodness we’re tapering because there’s just too much going on these days. This weekend’s run of eight miles couldn’t happen yesterday because I was watching the Iowa Hawkeyes play Maryland so I went out this morning.

But first, some football! My friend Sijin went to the game with me. It was her first college football game and tailgate experience.


Before the game a friend asked her if she understood the goal of football. She said, “to win.” I think she gets it. Too bad the Hawkeyes didn’t.


After a fun but exhausting day (which included running into even more people from my hometown), I had too much sun and not enough water and fell asleep on the couch at 7:00.

Luckily it wasn’t too hard to get me out of bed on to the pavement this morning. 8 easy, but boring, miles. And it’s finally fall! I was actually under-dressed this morning! It was wonderful!
