The Summer Sizzler trail run

It's official...my friend, Lauren, and I have signed up to run the Baltimore marathon in mid October. We started our training in June and are now underway. So far, all has gone well and we are enjoying these recent cool mornings. This past weekend we ran in a 7 mile trail run up at Lake Norman State Park. It was a beautiful, shady trail. Lauren came in first in her age group and I came in second in my age group...Baltimore marathoners better watch out!

Grove Park Stay-Hmmm...Leave it or take it?

Daniel and I spent last weekend in Asheville at the Grove Park Inn. I had a veterinary conference and couldn't pass up an all expenses paid weekend in the mountains, especially at the Inn. To give my honest opinion, I didn't think it was actually all that great. Yes, it is a beautiful building and area, but the service and accommodations were not worth the steep fare for a night's stay. I'd just as much rather stay snuggled up in a tent next to my hubby out on a mountain peak. I did, though, go on a sweet morning run, Daniel and I visited the Asheville arboretum and Daniel photographed along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Sounds like my kind of fun!
