Every time I thought about blogging this week, I thought nothing exciting enough was happening to bother. But now that I think about it, I've been pretty busy:
I took Fiona out for her maiden voyage on Thursday, for a short ride, and was very happy with how she felt. We went out today for a longer ride and I'm getting better at changing gears and generally figuring out how to ride a new bike.
Stanley and I went herding again on Friday. My chin was split open from an enthusiastic greeting by a dog at Herding 4 Ewe (and while I feel quite disfigured, it is healing nicely and just looks like a big cut down my chin).
Hockey season is here! WOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO! We went to Sharks pre-season games Friday and Saturday nights. The season opener is October 9th.
I ran a trail 10K on Saturday. The folks at Pacific Coast Trail Runs put on many lovely small trail races and I could see why they are so popular. I was not planning to run all out but to use this as a training run - that said, I still came within 2 minutes of my (flat course, 3-year-old) 10K PR. I came in 6th out of 22 in my age group!
My running is going to pick up this week, as I start training for the Las Vegas half marathon. Last year I nearly ran this race in an Elvis costume and chickened out at the last minute. This year I'm hoping for a new PR and will be enjoying Vegas with several of the ladies of Smofit.* It's also my last week of pre-masters swim and then I have to get out of the kiddie pool and swim with the big girls in masters.
