As if having a super packed Thanksgiving wasn't awesome enough, Saturday and Sunday were spent squeezing in as much fun as possible to make the break from work really worth it.
Saturday we tried to brave the elements and get some paddling in, but the wind and gray skies made the trip to the beach a bust.
Summer weather may finally be coming to an end.
Sunday we carved out time from lesson plans and grocery shopping to visit the Sand Sculpture Championships, which we try to see whenever they're local.
It's amazing what people can do with 40,000 pounds of sand!
The theme this year was Christmas. Some of the sculptures were corny, but there were quite a few funny ones, and even a couple that captured the ethereal beauty of the medium.
This week is looking good. I have a little niggling foot pain in my right foot, but otherwise I'm feeling great after slowly boosting my mileage again. (I got a nice 5-miler in Saturday before we tried to paddle.)
Hopefully it goes away and I have time to get in some training before our Sup 'n Run relay this weekend. 8 miles on a tender foot doesn't sound like my idea of fun.
How's your Monday going?
Can you believe it's December already?!
What races do you have coming up?
