Back from Vacation!

Wednesday afternoon we packed up all our stuff and headed to the lake! I have been going to this lake since I was born!!


Brian started out Thursday morning with a hike up the hill behind the camp to look for firewood for a camp fire.

We made peanut butter s'mores (and regular ones too!)

It was a beautiful evening where I tried to take pictures in the dark.

And my family was there too!

Friday morning at 6am I headed out for my 12 mile long run! I felt horrible for pretty much the whole run but I just thought it was more important to run the mileage. I am in uncharted mileage area now! I really haven't done many runs over 10 miles! The other funny thing about this run - I sweated so much that the skirt bled black all over my legs. Opps!

And then I sat on the beach and tried to get rid of my watch and other weird running tan lines!

This was the view from the place we stayed. Not too bad except for that other house in the way!

Saturday we did a bit of hiking and enjoyed the area. The weekend went by too quick!

Sunday we traveled home, making a quick stop at my family reunion where it poured rain! Today it is back to work! Happy Monday!

Way to fit a long run in on your vacation! That is tough sometimes! I did 11 miles at the lake this weekend, which felt like a 'shortish' run after my 17 miler last week! :P

Looks like you had a great time! Hope you got rid of some tan lines. I have terrible ones and have given up on getting rid of them!!

Good job getting your 12-miler in while on vacation. I have to do that in September and I'm already researching places I could run near where we are staying :)

Well this is a first! I've never heard of sweating so much that the clothing bleeds. That's pretty freaking awesome. Go you!!
