Orange Friday

This week was a short and fast one, as I had Monday off. It was nice to have a four day week, especially with some of thing things that have been going on around here, but it really did make for a busy and quick week!

The high of my week was...I will say it in a photo. What an exciting week! This photo is from 2012, but today, we will have another parade. It has been a very interesting season.

Giants Parade 2012

The low of my week was...this week I didn't really have a low! I guess I would say that I am disappointed in the way that the Whitney hike went on one hand, but on the other hand I had a really good time with my brother and Dad, so it's not really that much of a low really. It was very cold and windy and my brother had a bit of sickness so the hike didn't quite go as planned.

The favorite thing I read was....Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore. What a fun and quirky book!

My favorite thing I heard was...a few episodes (podcast) of Freakanomics. I listen while I run and it is a fun way to pass the time.

The best thing I spent money on was...The trip to Whitney...gas, food, beer and lots of pastries! It was an 8 hour drive each way, but was totally worth it!

My plans this weekend include... a trip to Phoenix to pace/crew some friends of mine at the Javelina Jundered (100 miles) race! It will be a good time, as it is at a park where we will set up a tent and it is a multi loop course, so we will be able to see them a lot and to run as many loops as needed with them.

How was your week? What plans do you have this weekend? Do you know what a Javelina is?


  1. Hope you have a great weekend pacing/crewing your friends! :)

  2. That sucks your hike didn't go as planned, I was going to tell you the photo in your last post (from 1995 - wow!) is amazing. That looks like quite the stunning hike! I would like to see some new more recent pictures now :)

    Have a good weekend in Phoenix!

  3. Wow, you have busy back-to-back weekends! But at least you are spending your weekends doing things you enjoy. Sorry to hear the hike didn't go as planned...

    My week was busy, but good. We had a lot of Halloween things such as our pumpkin carving party on Tuesday and a murder mystery party last night, and now tonight we have a costume party.

    I do not know what a javelina is! I am going to guess it is a small coyote!

  4. I do NOT know what a javelina is... will you take a picture and share it? I am so happy for you that the Giants won the World Series again this year. I even cheered for them :)

  5. Have a great weekend! So great that you get to enjoy time with friends doing the things you love to do.

  6. I have no clue what a Javelina is, but every year I wish I could get out there for the JJ100. Hope you had fun! and booooooo the Giants again? really? I thought KC had the momentum this year but Bumgarner (who is from NC) was just too much.
