We (Blake included!) ran the Pacers Freedom 4 Miler here in Court House on June 28th. It was a easy downhill mile 1, followed by a flat mile 2 and 3 at the turn around, and then back up that hill for mile 4. My splits were quit impressive (8:36, 11:04, 11:25 and 12:27 - HA!) with that hill at the end! I was super proud though of my guy getting out there and doing it! And he RAN with a giant smile on his face across the finish line, too!! (I was busy getting photos taken with Courtney, I wasn't there to grab that pic, so hopefully they post finish line images soon and I can see it. I just happened to walk up as he was crossing with the silly grin. When I later asked what that smile was all about, he said a girl ran near him about the last quarter of a mile hollering at him about "losing to a girl!!" Ha! :-)

So in the upcoming weeks while I'm boyfriendless, I head to Atlanta next weekend to see family...and the next weekend some of my Oiselle teammates and I are running in the Crystal City Twilighter, followed by some adult beverages. I'm really excited for this little nighttime race! Should be a fun one!
PS-DC/Arlington folk - feel free to email me if you ever want a running or a happy hour friend! I literally have like 2 friends outside of work, and I will be sitting around my house bored while B is away, so please holler if you are bored too! Let's play!!
How's your summer getting started? I loved reading everyone's fun July 4th Race recaps!! TGIF! What's on the schedule for this weekend?
