Sunburnt monday

Only have a few mins to write. I am going to be in training all week at work, so I don’t know if I will blog or not. I had a good weekend, hope you did too. It didn’t go totally as planned. Friday night I didn’t make the fundraiser, by the time I got home from work and the grocery it was already 8 and I was exhausted and Gary couldn’t go b/c he had to work, so I opted to just send in a donation and stayed home and read. Sat I went to the trail race, but it was just as hard as last year and I ran it with some friends and we opted out of the second loop and did the other 5 somewhere flatter. My time was so slow b/c we stopped for like 15 mins to help some guy with his dog that had collapsed from heat exhaustion, so I think I will take it out of my race list! Sunday was great, I met Beth and Janet and we rode the GCT course and the Fairport Harbor course. We met Tracie for a few miles too. Total we did 45. It was raining when we started and then hot as hell when we finished. Then we ran 6 miles. I was spent when we were done, tired, thirsty and sunburned, but I felt great! Love those hard workouts. Sunday night we sadly had to go to a memorial service for Gary’s friend who died. He had 2 kids and was only 40 years old. He went out to get his newspaper, bent down and had a massive heart attack. His sister said he was probably dead before he hit the ground! We had to wait in line for 3 hours to pay our respects, my feet were killing me, shows how well loved the guy and his family are. So, remember people between the swimming, running and biking, make sure you are living, laughing and loving. There is never enough time. Don’t let your training take place of spending time with loved ones.

You packed a lot into your weekend and I appreciate the last sentence of your post. Don't let training take the place of your social life. It's definitely a good little reminder!
