Brent and I grilled out ourselves tonight after wussing out on going to the race. We went to church and Panera instead, which I'm sure was a much less draining day than going to the infield at 6:00 a.m. We'll gear up for next year. By the way, how much do I love Danica Patrick??? A whole lot. I listened to the race on the radio and really enjoyed when the announcers said she was "making a beeline for Ryan Briscoe's car." Hilarious. The point where she really won me over was the race where she kicked her helmet on the ground and then stomped off, looking ridiculous. I can relate because that's something I might do and then regret later. Similar to when I take the CPA Exam and get so mad about all the stupid questions they ask me that I end up doing a lot of huffing and throwing my pencils around for awhile before I realize I'm being a baby.I hope your Memorial Day weekend has been as relaxing as ours!

Author's Disclaimer: You're about to see more vacation pictures than you're probably wanting to see...but the fact that you're even at this site tells me you're interested enough to look at a few of them. Another note - I got tired of rearranging the pictures, so please don't mind this disjointed post. :) Enjoy.
He knows he rocks it at his pool.
It was a wonderful vacation and it was sad to come back to reality...but the show must go on. There are dandelions to kill in the yard and bug carcasses to sweep up off the floor! (Thank you, Terminix!!)
Our wonderful travel companions who we can't wait to vacation with again soon!

Brent decided to join in on the punishment on Friday and ended up with a very good time (2:13) for a man with a bum knee and about 3 weeks of training under his belt. I came in about 40 minutes after Brent and friends Laura and Kirby per the usual...which always works out perfectly because they are usually recovered enough to carry me back to the car. Laura ran it in 2:09 which I believe is her best time yet. She also ran the Nashville Mini the week before, so she is pretty much amazing. Kirby ran as herself this year and not as 42 year-old Gordon Lightfoot (okay, so it's not Lightfoot but we can't remember his last name) and had another good time of around 2:15. And another kudos to Rachel, who ran it in 2:32 and beat last year's time considerably.
Maybe I should consider sports writing as a career change? (Since right now I'm "studying" for the Financial section of the CPA and I wil surely toss my laptop out the living room window if I have to answer ONE MORE question and foreign currency translation or other comprehensive income. Good thing I have this blog to work through that laptop-throwing sensation.)
I'll post a pre-race picture as soon as Laura and Kirby give the approval. The race isn't something to get all gussied-up for...in fact, I'm not sure if I give my approval to post, either.
Okay, a few more hours of studying left...then it's off to buy swimming suits, suncreen, and a wide-brimmed hat, because tomorrow morning we are off to Cabo!!!!! :)
