Long Weekend

We have had a great holiday weekend! It started out Thursday night with us running the Electric 5k in Las Cruces. It was so cool, we ran right before the electric light parade and it was packed with people.

Friday morning we got up bright and early to the run a 4th of July 5k. It was incredibly hilly but so fun. I even got to meet a fellow blogger friend, Amy. :)



Friday evening we went to Pop Goes the Fort on post and had a fantastic time! The 1st Armored Division band played as well as the El Paso Symphony (which at one point the commanding general conducted lol). The fireworks were spectacular!!! Far better than we both expected.


Saturday and Sunday were spent getting rid of excess stuff that we don't need. Kyle made a trip to a dumpster and we easily got rid of over a thousand pounds of stuff.


Today will be spent relaxing for the most part. I start 3 new classes today so it should be interesting.

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!

  12. It was great meeting you IRL! You're both so sweet, and you even managed to run a sweaty 5k and look photogenic at the same time. That takes skill! ;) I'm for sure doing the 10 miler in August, and I'm currently debating the Spartyka 5k in four weeks. I'm kind of 5k-ed out, but it would be nice to have one more race between now and the 10 miler. We'll see how I'm feeling once work starts up. I might not have the energy for another race!
