D was elk hunting. He got skunked (didn't get one) but saw several moose. He had a blast and got his fill of fresh mountain air before heading back to his office dungeon on Monday.
M and I stayed busy while he was gone, spending money and eating fast food. =) We went swimming on Friday. He has no fear at the pool and walked in up to his neck, splashing around! Can't wait to start up our swimming lessons again in a couple of weeks, he just loves the water. Some girlfriends came over for movie night and we had so much fun catching up we didn't even watch a movie.
On Saturday we played and then did the Trail of Terror 5k in the afternoon. M was in costume and it was our first stroller race! We didn't crash into anyone with the stroller so I think it was a success. It was a fun race atmosphere and M really got a kick out of being a part of the festivities.

Sunday was filled with church, a birthday party and then the Global Run for Water 5k (a virtual race) for me. D had come home in the afternoon, so I ran without the stroller around the neighborhood. I signed up for this on a whim after reading Kristen Armstrong's blog on Runnersworld.com. It is a benefit race for people in Burundi and the $25 entry fee for each participant provides access to clean water for a Burundian FOR LIFE. $25 so that someone has access to clean water for life? You can't beat that - so of course I signed up! It was such a beautiful, windy fall afternoon to run and I'm glad that we could contribute to a good cause.
