Whew - a whirlwind!

Wow - the last couple of days have been a whirlwind!  I swear - I just don't know how time can move so freaking fast!

On Sunday, I went on my scheduled "long run".  Was not sure how far I was going to go, but ended up taking a different route then I normally do.  I made a choice at 8 miles to continue a loop rather then take the shortcut which led to me running the longest distance I have ever run - 16 miles!  

It was pretty humid, and my time was quite slow (2:12:11), but I'm pretty amazed that I did it.

This weekend they had a festival that they have every year in the nearby village, and associated with it, everyone has their rummage sales going on.  It looked like rain so most people weren't having theirs Sunday morning, but some had stuff still outside.  I ran by one place and they had some barbell weights out by the road.  When I got home, I grabbed Marc and we went over to the house.  I went up and knocked and asked the woman how much she wanted for the weights and she said to just "take them".  OMG - SCOOOORE!  Any of you who lift weights know how incredibly expensive they are.  So we loaded them all in - they are in mint condition!  

That day, my mother had us over for dinner for my birthday.  It was a fun, relaxing evening.  

Yesterday was my birthday and I took the day off work.  We left the house pretty early and ate early in order to get to the movies on time.  We NEVER go to the movies, but we had a gift certificate and since we are both Trek geeks, we wanted to see the new Star Trek movie.

A quick stop a Walmart on the way home and then - holy crap - it's 6PM!  Where the hell does the time go??!!  I seriously feel like I'm constantly chasing time that is slipping through my fingers.  We managed to get in a quick 4 mile walk with the dogs, but geez, it isn't half of what I wanted to get accomplished this weekend.

I am detoxing today after totally over-doing it for my birthday lunch - and I mean TOTALLY over-doing it.  But it was planned and I enjoyed myself, so what the hell.  Back on track for the rest of the week, right?

Now that summer is here, and my birthday is over, it's time to re-evaluate my time management and priorities.  Wish me luck!  I don't mind being busy but constantly feeling like I'm chasing something is starting to get overwhelming.
