Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day, for those of you in the U.S., and Happy Fourth of July to everyone else. For the first time in three years, I don't have a July 4th race. There is a 5K here in town, but today will be busy enough without it. Besides, I didn't finish my run yesterday thinking, "What I really need is an extra three miles." I finished it thinking, "What I really need is a day off." So this is it.

We're taking off around noon to drive down to Grandma Jogger's house for a visit. My sister is up from Georgia with her family, so Grandma J will have a houseful. It should be fun.

I experienced one of those "You know you're a runner when..." moments as I prepared for this trip. "You know you're a runner when you are going for a three day weekend and you pack your running stuff first." I may have forgotten a change of underwear, but by golly I have everything I need for two runs while I'm down there.

I'm leaving the laptop here, so I won't be blogging for the next few days. Rest assured, I'll get caught up when I get back. Have a good weekend!
