I’m starting to learn that being busy is just a state that we all know as adulthood. I keep thinking things will slow down, but they don’t! 🙂 I did take a very brief break after the race, but it didn’t last!
While I’ve been out on adventures, here is what you missed:
-An Earth Day presentation. Matt, my TU chapter president, and I, made a PowerPoint to share what TU does in our community. The Jensen Center was packed with friends of water in our area. 🙂
-I ran up to Wausau and did a few headshots and event photos from an oral health presentation sponsored by Fehrman Orthodontics.
-I cooked a killer batch of fajitas. They were pretty, too… -I religiously went to yoga at Community Soul.
-And last, but not least, Brian and I celebrated my one-week-post-marathon anniversary by running a little five mile race in New London. It’s called the Sturgeon Shuffle, and the course runs along the Wolf River while the sturgeon are typically spawning. It was a great race, though my legs were feeling pretty tired near the end. Marathon recovery is no joke! I do love running along the water, and this course is an out-and-back, with a two mile option. It starts and ends at the school, runs through a little park, then the rest of the course follows the river. I loved that part of it. Brian was a trooper and stuck with me through the whole thing, even though I felt like I was running excruciatingly slow. Post-marathon muscle fatigue is such a weird and very real thing. It was a relatively small race, with chilly and windy weather, and it was well organized. They had bananas and delicious cookies at the finish, so I was obviously pretty excited for that! We finished and warmed up inside the school until it was time for awards.
Brian placed 2nd in his age group. I got 3rd in mine, and we both came home with these fabulous mugs as awards.
I’ve been traveling all over the place, shooting places, people, and projects… and I can’t wait to sit still long enough to share them all with you!
I’ll be back soon. 🙂
