The Weekend

Happy Memorial Day!  Welcome to my weekend round up. It’s the area that I digest my weekend run however good or bad it may be along with any other escapeds that I might have par taken in.

First off let me say thank you to all the men and women who have and continue to protect our fine country. You guys and gals are amazing!!

Memorial Day

This weekend took us to my mother-in-laws house. Depending on the number of family members that pile in we call it Camp W or just The Farm.  Either way it’s a little slice of heaven. It’s peaceful, serene and just wide open spaces. Kids can run and play till the wee hours and the adults do pretty much the same.  It’s just an amazing little place and the town is just as small. It encompasses 4 gas stations within 1 block and a handful of eateries along with a Piggly Wiggly, Freds and Dollar General. It has more to it than that but that’s the jest of it. I love visiting.  It always heals my soul for a couple of days.

Getting runs in sometimes can be challenging. With wide open spaces includes unleashed animals both two legged and four legged.  Since cell service is very limited I have to play it safe where I go and how long I’m gone.  It’s the kind of area where I’m sure people from the witness protection program could go and never be found.  So my running route is a 1.75 mile route. It’s got beautiful scenery and for the most part low traffic. I enjoy it.

My weekend run was limited to 3 miles. I would like higher mileage but since I’m nursing a hitch in my hip I’m keeping the miles low. If all goes well I’ll start increasing it here soon. That’s my hopes wishes and dreams. I’ve been walking to help strengthen my legs when I’m not running and I also started sporting these amazing new compression pants by BioSkin post run (after I dry off) (review to follow in few days) and I can feel it getting better. It’s just going to take time. It’s always something!   Putting all the negative stuff aside it just felt good to move and be outside.

Here are few pics from the weekend……

And of course many trips were made to the barn so we could check our phones. To get any real service we have to drive into town.

Another beautiful, blessed weekend in the books. Only a few more days and we can try it again next weekend!  Cheers!
