Hooray for hump day! I actually have Friday off this week, so it’s really past hump day for me. Does a 4 day work week even HAVE a hump, Bro?
Don’t let that title fool ya. There was plenty of running last week. I finished my week with 26.8 miles (I think it was really 27, but who can argue with Strava). Speaking of Strava, if you don’t use it you should. It’s a great way to track progress and get socially involved with the active community. If you DO use it, feel free to follow me 🙂
I just found out that I’ll be going to Chicago/Wisconsin with my parents in September! My parents are going to take a vacation and head out east and we’ll spend a few days together seeing a Cardinals game at Wrigley Field (a lifelong dream of mine) and then in Sheboygan, WI with relatives. I’m SO EXCITED (like Jesse Spano excited).
Friday night we had our weekly softball games. I pitched about the worst inning I’ve ever pitched. It was awful. I let one questionable call get in my mind and I couldn’t shake it. We lost both games, so I drowned my sorrows in a couple of beers with my friend Cody. Of course if we’d won, I’d have celebrated with a couple of beers with my friend Cody.
Saturday night was a first for me. I cancelled on a sitter so that I WOULDN’T have to go out for beer and a band. Times have changed. My wife and friends had a great time without me, so I heard. I had to save my strength for WEEZER.
In a search for discounted tickets, I stumbled across a website that has free tickets for veterans, called vettix.org. Venues and people donate various tickets for veterans to use and it’s AWESOME. I put in for 4 tickets and it cost us $15 for all of them. The 2 that were going with us couldn’t make it, so it ended up being a date night for Jen and me. I was glad it turned out that way. We had ourselves a time.
Weezer was GREAT (as were the Pixies). They played a great combo of new stuff, old stuff and covers. They even played a REALLY old cover of the song Happy Together by the Turtles (a childhood favorite of mine). The rain didn’t stop people from hitting those lawn spots. We were living like kings and queens in the very back row of the seated sections. That beer was $17. I wish I could say it was worth that.
Well, that’s my week. See, I don’t ALWAYS talk about running. The next weekend is coming up. I hope it’s as awesome as this one was.
Anybody have any plans worth nothing?
