So much fun, so little time :)

Here I am with some time on my hands, so I thought I'd best post some new happenings since David called me out earlier for not posting lately on the blog :) He likes to read the recaps of our latest adventures I guess, since they're always fun. I've got some time on my hands because I'm here supervising the window installation at David's house. Can you believe he left me in charge?! I'm drunk with power. Wheeeee!! The windows look soooo good, his vision for the house is becoming reality, a little at a time.

Anyway, what fun have we been up to lately? Padres games of course, and now that football season is about to start, you know where we'll be on Sundays. David at the home games and me posted on the couch watching them all. I love football, and I love it that we have a team with potential to do even better this year. Gotta love LT!!! David's been golfing a little and we even went miniature golfing! I don't think I've ever been mini-golfing! It was so much fun, but we are both very competitive, so even though it was only mini-golf, we both wanted to kick a$$... of course, I lost though, so I had to suck it up :( David tried to give me a couple of do-overs so I could get a better score, but that just goes against my nature!

We've been going to the racetrack in Del Mar too, it runs the end of July through early September every year. Besides seeing all the beautiful horses, it's fun to place little bets, even more fun to win :) and they have concerts and festivals every weekend too. There are people dressed casually and then there are people decked out in cute sundresses and heels, and huge hats. I did the sundress thing one weekend when we had a table, but otherwise, there's too much standing and walking around for my poor feet... it's flip-flops all the way.

We've been having very hot weather for San Diego, and yes I know that this is relative because everywhere else it is unbearable for much of the summer. But it is relevant to my story from last weekend. I ran the America's Finest City Half Marathon on Sunday morning and it was brutal because it was so hot. It starts out at Point Loma, directly on the ocean so normally at 7 a.m. it is quite cool there. Last year when I ran it, I had wished I had brought a sweatshirt to wait at the start line. But not on Sunday, I started sweating heavily as soon as we started the race. I knew it was going to be a tough 13.1 miles! At about mile 7 I had my usual thoughts of "Why am I doing this again?" But I actually had thoughts of quitting, which are not normal. I was not just drinking water at the water stations, but I was pouring it over me, which blurred my sunglasses so I couldn't wear them. Next time I'm wearing a hat and taking a little towel on the run with me! Anyway, it turned out to be a pretty good run considering the heat. David was at the finish line to see me cross!! He is such a stud, he got up at 4 a.m. with me to drop me off at the shuttles to take me to the starting line, is he cool or what?!

After finishing up the race, we had already planned to go the racetrack for the Pacific classic. Believe it or not, 13.1 miles is not a killer for me. I'm not a fast runner, but I can go some distance before it affects me too much. Well it was the heat that did me in on Sunday. As soon as we got to the track, we stood in the sun in the Paddock area for about 10 minutes, then went inside to make some bets. It was stuffy and hot inside and I realized I was about to pass out if I didn't get water fast and get outside in the breeze. I would have just been mortified! So out I ran leaving David to find me some water. As soon as he handed it to me I downed a 16 oz. bottle in about 5 seconds! So thanks to my baby for taking care of me :)

So David has his 20 year class reunion this weekend (where does the time go?!) He'll be catching up with old friends and I'll be catching up with Ms. Heidi, we're going to be hanging at the pool all weekend I'm sure. Now if I can just get back to posting every day! I won't have to bombard you with long posts at once!
