#WeekendCoffeeShare – 06-04-2017

If we were having coffee, I’d say that it has been a pretty good week!  Then I’d offer you some tea or maybe some water if coffee’s not your thing.  I’m sure we can rummage something up for you.

Daughter and I after the race!

As far as the week past, it was great.  I only had to work two days between getting home from Universal and our trip to Virginia for this weekend’s Spartan Super that we ran Saturday. Continue reading

#WeekendCoffeeShare 5-14-2017

coffee share picWhat a weekend!  If we were having coffee, we would have lots to talk about.  So grab a cup out of that fresh brewed pot on the counter and sit back.  I’ll turn on a bit of music.  Anything you feel like lstening to tonight?

There we are.  So, the weekend went well.  We made our first trip to Daytona Beach and even though we didn’t spend much time on the beach itself, it was cool.  What we did do was wake up early Saturday, drive to Bunnell, and race the Spartan Super there.  It was our first race in Florida and it went really well, with both my daughter and I finishing the course of about nine miles and 27 or so obstacles in 2 hours, 2 minutes, and some seconds.  She edged me out by about 20 seconds at the end of the day with a great running effort on her part.  I thought that it was really cool that we finished so close in time, considering we started about an hour apart.  I am so proud of her and the hard work she has put in to get to where she is now and the potential she still has for her future in the sport.

#weekendcoffeeshare – Winterfest 2017

Just outside of Gatlinburg.  Newfound Gap, I think.

If we were having coffee, at this moment, I would be a bad host. See, right now, I don’t have any coffee, though I wish I did. It would help with the yawns while on the road, maybe. (Don’t worry, I’m not driving!) We would make plans to get coffee at the first opportunity though, and that opportunity will most likely be somewhere at the Biltmore Park Towne Square. That’s where we’re stopping to eat on the way home, so onward to coffee!

That’s right. On the way home. Yes, we’re on the road again. Sometimes it feels like we are on the road more than we’re at home, but that’s fine. We always have fun on the road. We spent this weekend up in Gatlinburg, TN, hanging out with thousands of other Christians for Winterfest 2017.

#weekendcoffeeshare – 02/12/2017 NOLA

If we were IMG_20160408_194710083having coffee, I’d tell you all about my recent trip to New Orleans and all the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells that came along with it.  It was a good time, and an experience that I will never forget.  Hopefully the future holds another trip to the Big Easy, where I can take my time and do some exploring.  This visit was quick, one night, passing through on a work trip.

Have you ever been to Bourbon Street?

Well, let me tell you, it’s wild down there!  You’ll see some stuff down on Bourbon Street.  Some things that maybe you want to see, others not so much.  Same with the smells I mentioned earlier.  Some great, others…not. Continue reading
