Rigby, Idaho Heart & Sole 5K

I wanted to get out of town for a little road trip and decided to sign up for the Heart and Sole 5K in Rigby, Idaho on April 29th. It was my first time doing this particular run, the 6th year that the town has put on this race, but sadly also the last. The race is done up by the Rotary club and they decided that they were going to do something new next year. A little sad because it was so well directed. The route was nice, a little cool pre-race but turned into perfect temps at the race start. The route felt safe and easy, no major traffic, and a nice little run around an empty lake.  A mile to the lake, a mile around, and a mile back.

Here are some pics of the route.

And then back to the start. Here's the finish.








I took lots of walk breaks during this trot because I have not been training, I'm fat and I was pretty dehydrated and very tired. The shin bone muscle was crampy and I didn't want to get to sweaty as we were planning on running around Idaho Falls and Pocatello for some shopping and dinner before heading home. This week I didn't get much sleep leading up to race day and Thursday and Friday I was helping a couple of people work, so that meant very long days out in the sun moving furniture. Without taking water breaks. Thursday night / Friday morning I got 3 hours of very fitful sleep. Friday night was 7 hours with a very early 5am wake up. Girlfriend here never does that so it was rough.

For the post-race, the raffle that they has was pretty awesome. They gave away I don't know how many prizes, lots of gift cards, some promo junk ( a calculator, water bottles, National Guard recruiting kits ) and some sweet goodies. There were 2 kids bikes, an Nike Apple watch, a couple of Smith sunglasses, some gift baskets, lots of bubbles and water balloons for the kids, among other things. Oh yeah, I even got a race medal and most races in bigger Boise don't do that at all! I'm quite sad if they don't do this run next year.

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
