Enjoying a lovely day with nothing on the schedule. Spent the morning editing photos from Friday for the commission I'm doing - think I got some really good ones of their property, the house not so much. I'm crossing fingers that they choose one of the view, not the house! Sent those off and I'm playing catch up with bills and laundry for a bit. Will head out for some sort of ride before I pick up the kids.
It's been nice to just ride when I want, how I want, the past few weeks, but I'm kind of itching to have some sort of plan for the winter. I'd like to do some fatbike races just for fun, and then I'd like to do some XC races in April/May. I find I have a hard time sticking to a plan in the summer, so it makes sense to concentrate my training in the Spring - just didn't happen this year with the broken rib. Anyhow, I need to sit down with Galen and come up with some plans soon. 
The other thing I need to do is lose my 6-8 lbs of broken rib weight now that it's the off-seas[...]

I got a letter in the mail saying the man who threatened to rape me, who was convicted three times for "disturbing the peace" then sentenced to 65 additional days in jail, has filed an appeal and is out of jail on an appeals bond. I am waiting on a call back from the City prosecutor to let me know what to expect - I may be subpoena'd again for his new trial.
In the mean time, I'm going ahead with ordering an outdoor camera to add to my security system. They are running a special for free installation/no service call fees for employees through the end of the month - and I get a 25% discount on the camera. It's still a little pricey (will come to $130ish after my discount) but I will feel so much better knowing I can keep an eye on my house at all times and re-wind tape up to 10 days. Just getting one for the front door/front of the house -You HAVE to approach my house from the front/north and then turn around since it's a dead end/retaining wall, so a camera facing north on my door [...]

Slept kind of poorly. Woke up at some point and heard the wind blowing the pine trees outside the bedroom. I hope that means the predicted cool front has moved in and this stupid summer weather will finally go away. 95 degrees in late September is a bit much.

Finished London's Call of the Wild.  Such great narration and I found the book so moving for some reason.  I think more than just a story of a dog.  I felt weepy throughout.  Especially at the end.  Now I need something new. Something for race day when I need a distraction.  Suggestions greatly welcomed!

Monday! And 4 sleeps until I leave on vacation. YAY.
I have gathered most everything I need for the trip, now it's just a matter of trying to fit it all in. This is further complicated by a WONDERFUL forecast that might make it necessary for me to include slightly warmer clothing. #firstworldproblems
I would like to: get in a walk/run do my writing assignment for the class that I'm in try and see what will fit into the suitcase watch the debate without it stressing me out too much
I think that I might accomplish maybe 2 of 4. Batting .500 isn't bad, right?
Headache free today **fingers crossed**

I was excited for the pool opening today, but when I got there, it doesn't open until 1pm. Boo! Even the locker rooms were closed, so I had to drive back home for my shower. Oh well. Recovery run tonight.

I'm prioritizing run over all else this week. One last Ragnar push!
They changed the res system at the gym to not allow online cancellation within 24 hours of class.  I finally realized this means I am not going to schedule much in advance because I spend time worrying about how to cancel if plans change.    So I am only on the calendar for Thursday, which I know I will do for sure.

Just wasted 3 hours of my day on a 10 day old "new" issue. On a system that goes live tomorrow.
Wow, what a group.
