Good week - strange but welcome weather

So the 4th of July turned out to be pretty darn good. I did this weeks long run during a cool but humid morning. It was a solid effort. I usually don't train double digit miles so intense - but it felt good and I went for it. I am sure it will pay off in the future.

We have been painting in between workout and work sessions. The office is about ready to be reassembled. It has been completely remodeled and updated. We got rid of the carpet in favor of our new stained concrete floor. Carrie added a nice base color and glaze to the cabinets - which now match our office furniture. We painted the baseboards and walls. We also painted the hallway and the newly built closet. Our next painting tasks will be the den, the bathrooms, the guest room and the "mud room". We have painted about half the house thusfar. We are taking our time. It has not been too burdensome.

Prior to round two of painting we are going to celebrate our 15th anniversary. I suppose this is our official honeymoon. We are headed to Hawaii. We are stoked. We've been traveling quite a bit over the past couple of months so the anticipation could only start building once the wedding trip was complete.

Good luck to all those racing this weekend. I know several people are racing at JCC in Scottsdale. Be safe, stay cool, hydrate and go fast!
