This Past Week in Pictures

We've had a pretty busy week! Sorry we haven't updated this week, we've been really busy! Ryan's been working a lot of overtime, and we really just haven't gotten a chance to sit down together and blog! But here's a quick recap of what we've been up to lately:

Miss Bethany finishing the Whaling City Triathlon last weekend. She did well, finishing 4/20 in her division. Ryan played the role of spectator/photographer and got some good pics!

Post-race pic with teammate Lisa, who came in 4th woman overall! Woohoo, go Team Racemenu/mix1!
We ran the Harborthon 5k on one of the Boston Harbor Islands (see the Boston skyline in the background). It was interesting to run a race at night, after work, so we didn't really know what to expect, but it was a lot of fun. We had to take a nice little boat ride over to the race. It was kind of a hilly course, but it was fun, and there was a nice post-race bbq and free beer afterwards! Miss Bethany ran really well, finishing 9th out of 417 women with a 21:45 (over a minute slower than her PR :-p), and Ryan ran pretty well, finishing in 23:14 (only about 35 seconds off his PR!). 

Ryan went fishing today with his dad and brother, and caught a nice bass!

KRDP cookout with all our closest running friends! This is a hardcore group of trail runners, ultra-runners, marathoners, and all-around good people!

Ryan also got some cross-training in on the bike today.

****WEDDING UPDATE: We had a successful wedding weekend: booked a florist, got our centerpiece stuff, and found an organist/singer for the church. ****

I'm glad to see Ryan's cross-training...I have a small pink scooter at my house if he needs a change of pace ;)

I read this cute post last night and I just couldn't think of words to describe Ryan on the little, tiny bike. I'm back to comment and all I can say is, don't let him ride that down the aisle in a tux at the wedding!!
I love the family picture, too!

Okay, random comment. Bethany, in the pic with Lisa you look like you have little pink Mickey Mouse ears. Funny how those two people in the background are so perfectly positioned. lol
