BUT.....in my post on Friday, I wrote about a rough run and calling it a victory to get three miles in even though I still ended up .45 miles short of my weekly target. We left for a long weekend in Richmond shortly after my run...so I knew that I had faced defeat in my weekly target. BUT......our hotel room was only a few doors down from the fitness center. On Saturday we were in and out of buildings....walked a fair amount in the blistering heat and when we landed back at the hotel I thought about that .45 of a mile. So when Jason hopped into the shower to clean off the sweat and grime of sightseeing on a HOT summer day....I went down to the gym and voila........ Nothing extra.... but 10 miles completed...every bit of those ten miles!
So yes, Jason and I went to Richmond, VA for a long weekend. We woke up on the first morning there and looked out the hotel window and saw the nutmobile sitting outside our window. How fun is that????
It was REALLY hot outside. Heat advisory warnings the whole weekend. So we tried to plan our activities around Air Conditioned buildings. (We spent a bit more time outside on Saturday than was probably wise...) We found LOTS of things to do...and we are going to have to go back because we didn't even scratch the surface of activities. (And because we didn't even have time to get to the Museum of the Confederacy...which is one of the reasons that I wanted to go to Richmond ....isn't it crazy how that happens!)
