Helvetia Half Marathon

I finished my first half marathon (13.1 miles) on Saturday, June 9 in 2 hours and 17 minutes and 8 seconds, which translates into 10:28 a mile. While I'm no Speedy Gonzalez, that pace was 1 minute per mile less than I normally run so I was pleased with that. (I hope to have a picture soon.) The PDX marathon is coming up on Sunday, Oct 7. Thanks to Portland Fit and their training program I should be ready!

New Laminate Flooring

Sheesh! It's been a long time since I've posted anything. I'm sure there have been lots of first between now and then, but here's a big one: we just tore out the carpet in our condo and put in laminate flooring.

The first two rows were the learning curve, but once we got it down it went pretty quickly. We're not quite done yet, but the main part of the room is. Next, we need to get some molding to go around the base of the walls.

Once we're done with the living room we're on to the bathroom. Due to some dripping under the bathroom sink, it smells kinda funny in there. Plus we want to replace the flooring in there with slate tile and Gabe wants to put in a new cabinet, sink and mirror. I also vote for some shelving and a new toilet seat!
