At the start--the gear and the fish!
Getting Sissy dressed to run!
She dropped the fish! What the?
Coming in for the trade off--all smiles! trying to keep her pants on
Sissy was the first leg of the race and once she got back the other girls did a great job and her team only lost to a group of 8th grade boys by 3 seconds!! They probably would have won if she hadn't dropped the dang fish! Ahh, next year.
She didn't smell too fishy at the end. I guess we'll keep her.
Husband did the lobster eating contest.
in the yellow
He totally expected to win but was beat out badly--as in like 40 seconds or so--to another guy. It was how fast you could eat two lobsters. Turns out the girl next to him tossed one of her tails in his pile so he ate 3 tails. Oops. Guess there are worse things than eating too much lobster...
Sunday was another beautiful day and called for a long (for me) run. I haven't done anything over 4 miles in a long time so I thought I do my 6 mile loop on the roads around my house. I headed out around 8:15 and immediately went back in the house to remove layers. It was too hot! Craziness! Finally, it's warm (for Maine) here in Maine. 50* at 8 am is pretty dang warm.
|4.00 mi||14:44 min/mi||4.07 mph||43:00||82 ft||59 ft|
This was my breakdown for mile 4 of my 6 mile run. Not particularly fast, right? Well, after around 3 miles I started to rumbling down below. You know what I mean, right? I hadn't eaten anything so I also had not down my morning business. I was hoping to make it the hour before needing to go, but alas, that didn't happen. Thankfully, there is a kinda public facility on the route that I was running that I knew I could drop in and use the facilities. It's closed on the weekend and also during this time of year, but I knew where the key is kept and knew I could get in.
Thankfully, the door was a little open when I arrived and I ran in and found the toilet. I thought to check to make sure there was toilet paper before sitting down and there was, so I was good to go.
Business complete, I went to flush and nothing. Nothing happened. The toilet wasn't working. Ugh. I had no idea what to do. I didn't want to be the asshole that left a deuce in the toilet for people to find when they came to use the building but I couldn't make the dang thing flush! Not to mention the stink.
With nothing else to do, I left to finish my run and get home. Hubs is a plumber and he would either be able to fix it or tell me what to do. I could also call the director and tell him so he would know. Ummm, nope, husband was going to fix it. There was no way I was calling anyone about this.
I got home and replayed my dramatic story to the husband. His first question--no water, right? Umm, yah. Didn't really check that. There was water in the bowl so I thought that was good enough. He thought they had probably shut the water off for the winter and that was the problem. He said to go back with a bucket filled with water and dump it in. Once there is enough water in the bowl it will flush itself.
After a shower and will a 10 gal bucket in tow--toilet was flushed. Thank god I'm not the ass that leaves a shit in the bowl. Phew.
Have you ever had to make a deposit in an unexpected place while on a run?
Ever run with a fish?
