No gym last night. Chiro today. Trying to see people registering for races and not sign up. Harder than I thought but I know deep down that I shouldn't right now.

The torchlight race officials put something on social media saying that the course was definitely long. They are figuring out a solution. Apparently it was a certified course but when they set the course up someone put a turn around in the wrong spot. I get that it's not a huge deal but my pace would have been one of the fastest 5ks I've run in awhile and it'd be nice to have that time officially!

Not much going on around here today. Home from swimming with enough time to shower then go right back to town for a chiro appointment for Little Miss and myself. My back is holding up, she didn't really have to do that much cracking at all. Went to the grocery store after that then home for lunch and help LM get through her chores. Now the kids are all off playing with their friends and I am honestly a little bored. 
It is hot, humid and dry here today. 
Interesting that LM ate a bunch of crap gluten and dairy when she was with my Mom but she is not showing any of her usual signs of food intolerance.

Wow, how is it Thursday already!?!? It's rainy this morning and Nate has a meeting, so I'm sitting in the cottage at Cedar Lake without anything to do. Reading my third book of the week, and updating my logs here. It's clearing up now, so I'm hoping to borrow a paddleboard and do some paddling on the lake in a bit since no boats are out. 
This week has been a whirlwind, between camping for five days in Steamboat and then heading out the next day for Chicago. Nice to be here and have not very much to do. Nate's got the kids going to daycamp at the conference grounds (this is where he grew up and went to camp, so he loves having them go), and we're not doing much. Puttering around walking the grounds like old people, hanging out with friends at dinner, etc. 
It sort of sucks that I'm off my bike for a week here after a very low volume week last week as well, but as much as I want to feel guilty about losing fitness, I'm feeling overwhelmingly like I need the break. I was [...]

Fingers crossed for a couple of good first experiences this week... hair appointment tonight at a place recommended by a co-worker. Hopefully they won't be snooty about my "no shampoo/no product" requirement. Curious to see what they charge - my Kansas gal only charged me $22 for a men's haircut but I have a feeling I was spoiled there (it literally took her less than 10 minutes to do a dry cut on me). Then tomorrow taking Bentley to a new vet clinic (he has fleas). We had such a good vet in Kansas, and I hope this new one is as caring and friendly to my old boy. And that the flea treatment works - poor B - I've tried two doses of over the counter meds and they just don't work on him.

Finally accepted an offer. I was definitely trying to get each company into a bidding war but one company wouldn't budge. Never did this before but I guess it is good practice what to do and not do if there is another situation.
I am starting to hate working out. Some people love, I don't it. I have to get outside and do something because running on the treadmill is KILLING ME!

Still just one run in France. It's going to be a battle of mind over body next week at my race. My studying has paid off though in that I've had perfect scores on both my wine exams. Hey, I had to STUDY hard for those. The joke is that pretty much everyone thought white wine was from green grapes and red fro. Red/black grapes. That's a big "nope".
