Enjoying dinner with the HR team downtown.
Two miles this morning before work. We have our annual HR Summit this week and that is going to interfere with running logistics but I’ll do my best. Happy Monday (that’s an oxymoron).

The weather here today is fantastic - overcast and 58° F. Perfection. I ran (mostly) across Big Dam Bridge and down toward Rebsamen Park and back for a total of five miles. I got there just as the Fighting Red 5K was wrapping up and scored an excellent parking spot. This run was better than last week’s, but that moment when everything “just clicks” has been elusive thus far in this training cycle. Sleep deprivation may be playing a role - I was up several times in the night with a sick Golden Retriever and ultimately got up at 5. Of course now she’s acting like nothing ever happened and happily running all over the yard (insert eye roll).
It’s time for football! And foam rolling.
Nothing says TGIF like a cold Shock Top! #tgif (at US Pizza Co.)
I ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill tonight. I was supposed to run three, but at the 2.5 mark I got a call from the car dealer where my new car has been in for repair for over a week. Something electrical was draining the battery. The good news: eight days later, it’s ready. Come and get it! The bad news: the car rental place is closed. Sometime tomorrow I’ll be reunited with my vehicle which makes me happy. In other news, I got an email from Nike implying that it’s time for new running shoes. Me and my Sauconys are good for a few more miles. And I’ll likely replace these with another pair of Sauconys. I just wish my current pair weren’t quite so fragrant. Friday is almost here! Peace and blessings.
We have a new family member arriving next month (a great niece or nephew) so the family was asked to get a flu and whooping cough shot. I just knocked it out at Walgreens and it was free with our Express Scripts insurance through work. Glad to have that done - bring on the baby!
Hey, where’d that nice weather go? It was warm and humid again this morning. I ran one mile with a pause to retie my shoes somewhere in the middle. Eight hours of meetings await me today, so I’ve got to get an early start. Happy hump day!
