Well, since its early in my Dopey training still, the miles are definitely the least interesting part of my week. LOL
I mean yesterday, when I went out for a 4.5 miler, it was 70, 100% humidity and a dew point of 71. It was like running in the amazon jungle – or, you know, Disney in January. LOL
But I am SO ready for it to get cooler and stay there. Because November will bring two of my favorite races – Edaville Rail Run and Attleboro Gobble Wobble. And i’d rather not run them in tank tops.
So what have I been up to since i’m not running much? Hamsters and Haunted Houses.
We’ve been letting him explore nightly in his hamster ball. And he runs around his cage like such a crazy man I kind of want to see if there’s a Hamster Ninja Warrior competition – because he could totally win. 😀
The reason I did a rare Saturday run this weekend was so we could go do something on Sunday that we have always wanted to do. Tour a haunted castle.
We went to Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA.
Its the home of inventor John Hays Hammond, Jr. and its absolutely amazing. It has so much detail that you could go through fifty times and still find something you’ve never noticed.
There was actually one spot where I looked around a corner, saw this door that scared the crud out of me and jumped.
But, still….overall? Definitely creepy cool.
And actually, come to think about it? A Haunted Mansion totally fits for Dopey training. 😀
86 Days to the first race…wonder what other Disney themed fun I can find this week.
