Two and a half gophers and a photobomber!

Due to the unfortunate timing of this picture (or the unfortunate timing of the numerous glasses of whiskey prior to this picture) our t-shirts are unreadable 😦 For your information “I may live in New Jersey, but I’m always in Minnesota Country.”

Saturday 7/12
13 messy miles @ 9:25/mile (see above)
This is what one gets when there is:
a) Too. Much. Whiskey.
b) Not. Enough. Sleep.
c) 80F by 8 am
d) Time sensitive work to do on the weekend
e) Locks on the G damn building that perpetually change/do/do not work with our assigned keys/group mates that are always at work but have apparently started going to yoga from 9:30-11:30 every Saturday

Let’s just say that I was glad to be done, alive and optimistic that people had occupied themselves with alternative sources of entertainment for the morning.

Total: 32 miles
Aside from making a few questionable delicious decisions and the oppressive NJ heat/humidity, the week wasn’t half bad. This just needs to continue for another 10 weeks or so…with massive milage increases…no pressure!
