My last blog post was a week ago. Did anyone miss me? Ha. (But I hope someone did.)
I've had quite the busy week since my last post. I left Thursday for Ariel's bachelorette party in Edisto Beach, SC. In order to be in Charleston on Friday morning, I had to fly in Thursday, but it actually worked out pretty well because I was able to have a surprise reunion with my Biffle, Steve, in Charleston on Thursday night. After mostly chatting on the phone for the past year, it was great to see him in person and do some catching up. I was also able to do a little reading while I had some downtime on Thursday.
The bachelorette festivities began on Friday and didn't stop until late Sunday afternoon, and it was such an amazing weekend! Everyone seemed to have a great time, and we all ate and drank very well. There was singing, dancing, swimming, and enjoying the sun, which are all some of Ariel's favorite things, so that was appropriate for the occasion. I came home a little tired but mostly really happy because I had such a good time.
This week, I've mostly been working and trying to wrap things up at my assistantship, as I won't be working this summer. I have an ambitious course load for the summer, so I won't be at home twiddling my thumbs during the hot summer months.
Other than that, I'm also making time for running. I'm still going to Happy's Run Club on Tuesdays, and Sandra is helping me stick to a training plan. I'm taking a bit of a detour from the training plan this weekend and going to Graford, TX for the Possum's Revenge 69 Mile Run, and that will be my longest run ever. There will be plenty of sun, heat, and humidity, but most of all, we're going to have a darn good time. So there. Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'll be rolling back into Baton Rouge with a pretty swanky new belt buckle at the end of the weekend.
So, that's a super quick catch up on what I've been up to for a week. I probably won't post Saturday, but I'm going to try to otherwise return to the daily routine so I can take a break and brainstorm some interesting content for days 300-201 starting in August or so. (I'll also post occasionally over the summer.)
Post-run today! 5 miles around the LSU lakes.
Something that made today great: I watched some pretty entertaining videos on YouTube today.
Time I woke up: 8:35 am
