Incidents & Accidents

So here are a few of those fabled pictures from Seattle, courtesy of David.

25 gifts for Joel's 25th birthday:

Another gift from me was a website for Abraham, where the adoring public will finally be able to legally purchase their music. Coming soon!

Mom made an amazing French silk pie with homemade whipped cream and fresh raspberries:

April had her SCUBA check-out dive Saturday afternoon, so we all went to Illahee park with her:

Sunday, Joel and David and I took the ferry from Port Orchard to West Seattle. We dropped off the Rockstar and picked up the Englishman:

Oh, and a Blackberry photo--waiting to pick Joel up in Bremerton:

The weekend before that was the Lacamas Lake Half Marathon, which I ran and which kicked my butt. I did quite a lot of walking and finished in 2:20:55, a 10:45 mile pace. I guess that's what I get for not really training (though, to my credit, it did hit 93° that day, and there were some serious hills--including one in the last mile that was so steep I panted just walking up it).

Here's one official race photo and a few of David's pictures:

That pie was amazing. I'm hungry for more just thinking about it.

Your running skills are still amazing. Those hills were killer.

A hot running day is nobody's best running day, that's for sure. And are you wearing a camelback water thing? Didn't they have water along the course? That's hard core.

I beginning to wonder what the hell people are thinking when they run marathons in the broad daylight.

I've been jogging in the mornings here (BEFORE the sun comes up) and it's killing me it's so hot.

Runners are CRAZY! But you look good in your healthy runner's sort of way.

Oh, Leah, that cracked me up--"you look good in your healthy runner's sort of way"! Thanks for the laugh and the compliment. =)

Carissa, I'm wearing a Camelback David's dad loaned me. I'd never run with one before, but between the heat and the sparse water stations, it seemed like a good idea. I only used it a couple of times--but was very grateful to have it!

And David, I agree completely about the pie and the hills. You would know, on both counts!
