Laura's Photos from Our Trip to Virginia


Click on the web album, above, to see the photos that Laura took while she, Elliot, and I were visiting my Uncle Jack and cousin Lori in Virginia.

While we were there we went to George Washington's birthplace, Robert E. Lee's birthplace, and visited downtown Washington D.C. It was a great trip!

203 comes in at 520th place!

Which is to say that I ran a 5k. The Tallahassee Palace 5k to be exact.

I was number 203 and I placed 520th out of 782 people.

My time was 31:48 which, while not great, is my best time so far so I am happy with it.
Hopefully I will be has information about the race, including everyone's time and such, plus some pictures of many of the participants. All the photos below have come from that site. Please note that I am not in the foreground of any of their pictures.

I've got to

But, even though my captions jokingly suggested that I was pulling ahead there, I was really just trying to keep up with all those people as you can tell by the fact that I never actually pass any of them.
It felt good to finish the race though. I think that I will be trying more. If can ever run one without having to stop and walk, I will be pretty happy with myself.

March Road Trip

Hello, all!

Sorry I've been so awful at updating the blog lately... this is my last semester of law school (yay!) and then I'll have the bar exam to study for, so I've been pretty busy. Plus, I've had scarlet fever for about 2 weeks now, and it has made me feel absolutely exhausted.

But anyway, I wanted to start sharing pictures from the road trip we took in March. (Elliot, Laura, and I drove to Virginia to visit my uncle for a couple of days. Then Laura flew home, and Elliot and I drove back to Tallahassee, stopping to visit Katie in Durham for two days, then staying overnight in Columbia and Savannah on the way back.) I don't have time to load all of our pictures into a web album right now, but here are some pictures Laura took on the first day of the trip.

The first day of the road trip was mostly driving. We were supposed to fly to Virginia, but we missed our plane. We couldn't get a new flight, so we just decided to drive. It was a reeeeeally long trip. But we had fun.
