Trip pics and Wed workout

I fell asleep easily and slept hard last night, not waking many times like normal, but I was wide awake at 4:14 a.m. today. Had to workout at 5:30 so that was fine, I just wish I could sleep longer. Had a small chat with Rob about this plan thing; I think he and I are on two different planets about what I want - which just floors me and I won't say anything more about it. This whole thing is NOT going as I wanted and it's no wonder I am left frustrated and confused and upset!

Lifted weights with 1/2 mile run at 7:00ish pace at end of each circuit, felt good, came home, iced my knee, made a cake for book club this afternoon, went for an 8 mile run when it was way too hot, took a very fast shower, went to lunch with past co-workers (thanks, guys...great to see you after all this time), went to the mall (hey, lunch was next to the mall - gotta take advantage) and scored a great deal on some cute Steve Madden sandals, came home and crashed until well past book club time, went to book club late -- which is okay since I didn't read the book (again), got home a bit ago and now I need to head across town for a friend's birthday. I'm exhausted - again. And I had a nap today.

Here's some pictures from our trip to Glenwood. Might I just say that Brendan, who seems to fixate on whatever activity he has last accomplished, now wants to buy a raft and go for the summer down the entire 1) Mississippi River (omg, yuck! Not my choice but .... ) and 2) the Colorado River, including the Grand Canyon, which has like a 10-year waiting list to go down it. All the power to him!!

I am late for friend's party so going to close and head out. Will try to write more details of trip and life and running tomorrow.
