If we were having coffee, we would be on the way home from the Terrain Race in Jacksonville Florida. (Just a few more hours!)
Anyway, I just finished sipping a nice cup of hot Christmas Blend from the Starbucks inside of Target. I’m not sure what you got, but I hope it was nice and tasty like mine.
Now that we have drinks, I’d tell you how good the race went. I finished the competive heat without losing my band, though I can honestly say that I need to improve my running. That six weeks of torn calf muscle healing has really taken a toll on me. I finished though, and am healthy still, so I’ll count it a success.
That’s not the best thing though. My awesome daughter, who is a much better racer than me, took second female in the competitive wave! Her first pro podium, netting her a big check for $100! She was so happy standing up on that podium with that big check held high over her head!
Yes, I am a proud dad.
That was about it for us over the weekend. We tried to see the new Star Wars, but the theater was crazy and all but the front row was sold out, so we opted for “Murder on the Orient Express” instead. It was good, not to mention nice and relaxing after the race.
I guess that works out anyway though since my daughter wanted to re-watch “The Force Awakens” before going to see the new one. Perhaps we can do that tonight.
As for now, I need to check on the #FridayFictioneers link. I began a story on the way down, but never got to finish it. If the link is still good, I need to get on it. If not, I should probably still finish the story. Though maybe not in 100 words. We’ll see.
So, I’ll let you go. I hope to see you next week. ‘Til then, safe travels!
