Here, There, Everywhere

It has been so fun doing so many random activities, with no special training plan or upcoming race.

I’ve been hiking with Sarah these days:

We hit up Rancho last week and she was great with the fast pace I set 🙂

Here we are, enjoying the view:

I really only let her sit for like 3 seconds before we headed back down:

Went real quickly to the Campbell track to do some more fun stuff at the track with these young’uns:

So Grace and Faith were fantastical and did the workout that I “prescribed”. Basically, they go up and down the stairs on one side, walk when the track is curved, and sprint when it’s straight (opposite side of the stairs). So basically they would sprint, walk, run up and down the stairs, walk… and I think they repeated that like 6 times!

I greatly disliked running as a middle schooler, but these girls were so good about working hard and just having fun with everything 🙂

On Saturday, our church participated in an annual kickball tournament!

We got 3rd place (out of five teams, hehe). More than anything, we had a TON of fun! And all of these great photos are courtesy of Julie 🙂

^Practicing. I don’t know how to kick.

I also don’t know how to throw or catch. I’m scared of the ball.

Here’s one of me and Mr. Joe:

Good gravy… it was tough to sprint it out from base to base, or especially when we had a chance to run more than one base. I’m not used to sprinting, but I’m okay with running. I wasn’t sore the next day, but I was fatigued. Guess that’s what happens when you play 6 games!

On Saturday, Susan and Russell hosted a dinner at their home:

It was a triple date with lots of laughs and lots of delicious (homemade) food!

Ate way too much, and loved every bit being there. It was also super fun to play with their daughter, Eliyah! Here is Susan’s photo:

I already shared on facebook, but I did a high ropes climb at our church retreat about 1.5 weeks ago:

It was so much fun, and a great experience making it all the way to the top!

There’s no picture of me at the top, but you can see how high it went:

Yes. It was scary while going up, but I knew I was able to do it. It’s actually not in the upper body strength, but more of lower body and some flexibility. I just had to throw my leg over the log and then get up. It’s also super safe because we wear the harness.

Do you have a debilitating fear of heights? (I clearly don’t… just a reasonable, non-debilitating fear/discomfort with great heights).

Do you participate in any tournaments or leagues during the summer (softball, volleyball, kickball, etc.)?
