Weekly Roundup - Aug 10th

This week was simply fantastic! We had a wonderful trip to Ireland and I have the jet lag to prove it. I arrived home last night and Mom and Dad are still in the UK to see some of their friends and enjoy more hiking. We'll be sharing more details in an upcoming post so I'll share a few photos today. I didn't have my (non-racing) running clothes until Monday afternoon so we didn't get in a shake out run before the race like we had planned. And for the most part, we were on our feet sightseeing all week so that would do for our workouts.
