It didn't happen. Lots of reasons, none of them great reasons, but we were a no show. Sam is still struggling with an injured foot and wasn't looking forward to running or walking 10 miles. I finally did the math to figure out wake up time, leave the house time, race start time (my heat was 8:20), race finish time, metro time, and then go out to my sister's to get the boys. It started to all become overwhelming and before I knew it my whole day was being spent on this race. I was not prepared for that. Since Sam was out I decided I was not braving 33,000 registered racers for the 10 miles I wasn't totally prepared for.
The expo was awesome - the boys got to climb in a Black Hawk helicopter and I tried on a bomb suit helmet. Pretty great day.
So what did we do instead?
We went out with another couple Saturday night for a fun date night. We had dinner, caught up, stayed up late (10:30!!!!!)
This morning we slept in until 7:30. Felt UH-mazing! We got on our bikes and rode hard for an hour. Then we went to get the boys, came home for a bit, and went to our Team Fexy Oktoberfest party. How do we feel now? Like this:
|barely on the couch, barely on the ottoman|
|Yep, fell asleep in a store|
I also have been meaning to write about some favorite things I've stumbled across lately:
|Magnet in the cap makes the design. SUPER easy|
|My husband brought these beauties home to me!|
|Loving this bubble necklace!|
