|Some of the other "moms" from IC and one daughter who ran too (me on the right)|
Thursday morning (Susan's new day off) we agreed to meet at the Katy Trail for a long run (with plenty of walking - seriously, I'm just not a runner yet). So we did 8.4 miles on a mostly shaded trail before it got too hot. It was a nice time. She really needed it mentally and maybe I did too. The time always goes fast when we are together and I only was hurting a little towards the end. I didn't get much else done on Thursday as the internet was down and I didn't feel like driving somewhere to work. So I read the rest of a book and started another. I'll do a book review post probably next week.
Friday and today have been more slacking. Read the rest of that book and will start another probably. Tomorrow is the Epic Mud Run near Columbia, MO put on my Ultramax Sports. I'm looking forward to it as I've never done anything like it. I'm also looking forward to sharing it with my husband and two other friends (though they didn't get in our wave - they are 40 min behind us). Need to run out today and see if I can find a waterproof disposable camera to take with us. I'm thinking there can be some truly "epic" pictures. I've read there will be zombies, color, big slides and lots of mud. Lucky for the race directors, Isaac has brought the first inch of rain we've had all summer. Should be mostly gone by tomorrow, but leaving humidity in its wake. The goal is to just finish and have a great time - I like that!
