It's not that Beth and I haven't been busy, we have, it's the fact that our lives just don't seem as exotic these days. I could tell you how I spent two days digging out a stump last week, but that would just prove my point would it not. Coincidently, I think that digging out a stump by hand is a valuable experience. Patience, persistance, and a good excuse to swing an ax. I love chopping wood with an ax.
Last weekend was cool though, I made a new PR (personal record) for a 5k when I ran the Covered Bridge race. Even better, Beth ran her slowest 5k, but the baby ran it's first race ever. We also heard the baby's heartbeat again on Friday. It was about 150b/m. FYI my resting heartrate is around 45-50, I told you that for no other reason than I think it's cool. Sometimes I go to Walmart only so I can sit in the automatic bloodpressure machine and see how low my heart rate is. One time it registered as 00.
Sunday was a first for me, I took part in a funride called Pedalfest. My brother in law and I rode our road bikes with about 100 others from Dowtown Elizabethton all the way to the Watauga Dam, very steep, and then down through the valley. It ended up being about a 30 mile loop, I was exhausted and my thighs were throbbing, but it was worth it and I'll probably do it again.
Apart from that, I'm trying to get together some shirts to sell this weekend. I'd give you details but this www is a shady place. I'll just say I think I'm on to a real good thing.
