Quick catch up

A very busy Memorial Day weekend, folks.
Friday night: Flew into Denver, rented a car and drove to Florence, Colo., for a bachelorette party for my friend Paula, who is getting married at the end of June (wrote about this earlier).
Saturday: Whitewater rafting at Royal Gorge. Awesomely beautiful. The water was frigid, but it was one of the most fun things I have ever done.

We didn't lose anyone -- meaning, not one of the girls in the party fell out of the boats. We took up two of them.
Sunday: Drove to Denver and Evergreen, Colo. Evergreen looks just like it sounds.
Monday: Ran the Bolder Boulder 10K, then flew back to Texas Monday night.
Tuesday: Work. Sigh. I'm really sleepy.
It was great seeing the girls, though. We don't all live in the same cities, but it's nice to be able to catch up where we left off. We cleaned up pretty good, too, after a day of rafting Royal Gorge.
Notable: Nailed the time I thought I would for a leisurely 10K -- 1:30. That's good, considering that I haven't run since the Austin Half Marathon in February. My IT bands are sore, especially the Austin knee (right one).
It should be interesting since I've got my eyes on the San Antonio RnR marathon in November. My training should officially start...about right now!

QoD: What are you training for?
