Tuesday Newsday – 8/21

Last week I didn’t post a tuesday newsday…. I didn’t really have anything of value to say, so I didn’t want to bore you with my babble.

Last week, running wise, I took it pretty easy because I knew marathon training was staring!!!!!

But I had a pretty awesome weekend. Friday, I didn’t do much because I was house sitting three crazy dogs. But saturday after work, I got to see my Dad, who is in town for a week, and I met up with one of my best friends and did this….

New Piercings! can you even tell which ones they are?

We then joined the company of other great people and enjoyed pancakes at a local diner. Mmmm…chocolate chip pancakes.

Sunday followed with climbing indoors and dinner in longmont with my mom. I drove to longmont for dinner but also to meet my friend from fort collins to do a hike.

We left longmont at 9 pm to get a few hours of sleep and start hiking at 3 am…….why in the world do I do these things to myself!? I conquered my second 14er, Long’s Peak, and believe me, I’m feeling it today. Hardest hike I’ve ever done, and no desire to do it again! You can definitely look forward to a post on this. Needless to say, I’m sore, bruised, scraped and my pride may be hurt a little.
