Survivor Mud Run 2015

Wow, I’ve pretty much abandoned this place for almost two weeks now, haven’t I?  I guess that means it’s time to add a blog post.

Honestly, not much has happened in the last couple of weeks that was new or exciting.  This last Saturday was the exception as I did my September mud run.  Yep, the Survivor Mud Run was back in the area.

And I use the term area loosely.  It’s about an hour and 45 minutes one way to where this particular mud run is.  But I guess that’s almost as long as some of the other mud runs I do.  It just seems longer since its further east than those.  And the traffic coming home!  It was over two hours back and with the heat and no AC in my car, that wasn’t pleasant.

The race itself was great as always.  They didn’t seem to have as many non-mud obstacles this year as they have in the past.  But I’m not really complaining because there was lots of mud, which I love.  There was so thin and some fairly thick stuff as well, which was great.  Then there is the rubber slide into the lake near the end, which is always fun.

I almost had a friend sign up to do it with me, but then he changed his mind and signed up for a different one.  I would have enjoyed introducing him to mud runs with this one and his company.  Plus the AC since he was going to drive.  But I’ll just introduce him to mud runs next month instead.

Labor Day Weekend Fun

You’ll notice I haven’t been posting about much outside of ultimate Frisbee recently.  That’s because, outside of ultimate Frisbee, not much has been going on.  But hey, this was a 3 days weekend, so I went out and had some fun this last weekend.

It started Saturday when I headed down to Downtown Disney to meet friends for brunch.  Unfortunately, two of the regulars couldn’t make it, but the rest of us had fun.  It’s always a case of good friends and good food.  Heck, they even had their Caramel French Toast as part of the buffet.  Guess what I went back for seconds on.

As if I didn’t stuff myself enough at that, as soon as it was over, I met up with another friend for lunch.  Yes, I was as uncomfortable as you might expect when it was all over.  I’d met him on a Disney message board, and we text each other every so often.  He was in town for the half marathon over the weekend, and it was too good an opportunity to pass up.  It was lots of fun chatting with him in person.

After a little shopping (mainly window shopping since I only bought one ornament), I started driving north.  But I stopped and bought a new couch on the way home.  Unfortunately, it is supposed to take 6-8 weeks to get it to me.  But it should be nice when it arrives.

Sunday was the usual (church and ultimate).  And then Monday I played more ultimate in the morning followed by lunch with some of my ultimate friends.  I hadn’t planned to play on Monday, but it was a lot of fun, and I’m so glad I went.

I really didn’t need more time at home to get down what I wanted to get done either, which was nice.  Oh, there’s always more I could have done, but the essentials happened.  Not that I wouldn’t have been happy with an extra day or two.  It honestly didn’t feel like I got an extra day off when I headed back into work today.
