We survived Hurricane Irene! It wasn’t much of a hurricane by the time it hit Philly. Other than lots of rain, the wind wasn’t too bad. Luckily, we didn’t lose power or suffer any water damage to our house. I can’t say the same for my beloved running trail. It was swallowed up by the Schuylkill River. Hawk and I went on a little walk yesterday to survey the damage first-hand (I’m a bad blogger and didn’t bring my camera). Yikes! I feel terrible for the people that live around there; they had to evacuate. So I should quit my complaining about finding an alternate running route for the next few days.
I dubbed this past weekend my “getting caught up on life” weekend. If I’m gonna be stuck inside, why not tackle my to-do list? On the top of my list was cleaning out my closet and finally hanging this up…
I love it. It got this back in December and picked out the perfect spot for it (yes, my closet – it’s a large walk-in and I figured it would be out of the way). I hung half marathons on the end and marathons in the middle. That’s a lot of races!
My favorite medal would have to be the NJ Marathon. Pretty classy for Jersey (I kid, I kid).
Hawk didn’t seem too perturbed about the hurricane.
Matt and I were well stocked with essentials.
We tried to watch the movie True Grit but could not get over Jeff Bridges talking out the side of his mouth. We literally could not understand a word he said and turned off the movie. House Hunters was way better anyway.
In running news, I moved my tempo run to Saturday because of the hurricane and ended up doing an easy run. My legs were NOT in the mood for more MP miles the day after a 22-miler. So I kept it easy and my super Type A self didn’t seem to mind. Imagine that.
If you were trapped in the house this weekend because of Irene what did you do?
Do you watch House Hunters or (even better) House Hunters International? We are obsessed.
