Wedding, Marathon Training, Biking to Work and a Yard Sale

Out of all those activities, engaging in a yard sale is by far the most exhausting! So much crap had accumulated over the past 9 years with four people so it was definitely long overdue the task of purging all the useless items from our house. I hope another 8 or 9 years go by before im stupid enough to tackle another yard sale!

For the last two weeks, I've been hitting my running goals and just completed by first 15-mile run since October 2010. Makes me wonder what on earth I did in 2011 (or didn't do)?! Last week's long run was along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia and provided absolutely beautiful scenery, a much needed porta potty, and great people watching.

We attended the neatest wedding while in Philly. Greg's best friend was getting married in a Quaker wedding. This would be a first for us. The rehearsal dinner was held at the Mask & Wig Club, a male-only, theatre majors only club. Cool history and an even cooler vibe. The wedding was in what looked like an old warehouse, lit only by assorted sizes of mason jars with candles. So much fun dancing with old friends and making new friends!

Time to finish watching Olympic cycling. I've had to go a week without getting my Tour de France fix and I'm like an addict!

  1. I did all my long runs along the Schuylkill River Trail when training for my first marathon. Yard sales are hard. I have only done one of them and it was a long, grueling process--good mental training for your upcoming marathon.
