Sunday I worked until 5:30 and when I got home, Keith and I immediately went up to San Leandro to have dinner with friends. We didn't get home until 8:30 and I realized I hadn't "moved" yet so I grabbed Boomer and went out for a 1.5 mile walk. I can't be forgetting stuff like that!
Kristi notified me quite some time ago, that on July 17th her training schedule called for a trail run. Yippee!! It could be 75-90 minutes long, no certain speed or heart rate - just a FUN RUN. We like those! I took her on one of my favorite 5.5 mile loops at Garin. We were on the move for 80 minutes, so I did good there. I really wish we could run together more often. Maybe once she's not training for something, we can. I was setting up the camera for a timed picture but when I saw how cute Kristi and Boomer looked, I decided to stay out of it.
Saturday afternoon we went to a Giants game. We thought we were getting there early (4:00 for a 6:05 game) so we could get a Tim Lincecum bobble head but boy were we wrong. The line to get into every gate was literally over a mile long. Keith and I elected not to stand in those lines but our friends did and they got one. I was just happy to get my picture taken with two great pitchers!! And look, Tim even let me give him a kiss on the cheek. He's such a sweet kid.

Last night I interrupted a RACCOON as he was having a free meal of dog food IN MY KITCHEN. We have a dog door in the pantry for Boomer to come and go as he pleases and now apparently for a raccoon. I was in bed reading and I heard what I thought was the cats eating. Boomer was laying at my feet and he wasn't moving or looking like he heard anything, but to me it sounded very strange. I got out of bed and walked down the hallway. When I got to the kitchen, I turned on the hall light and that's when I heard the dog door swing shut. I quickly turned on the backyard light but saw nothing. I looked down on the floor and there were wet footprints of a raccoon and I could smell him. I woke Keith up to tell him about it and he put the cover over the dog door. After seeing the mess he made with the water bowl, I now know this was not his first trip to our kitchen. This morning there was evidence the raccoon tried to get back in. Yikes! Keith sent me a text a little bit ago telling me someone gave him a trap so maybe we can get him relocated in a day or so.
I just got home from a marvelous trail run with HSE Lori and Mikey. It was 57 degrees and we actually got some drizzle while we were out. So strange, this weather we are having here in the Bay Area. Great running weather, that's for sure . I felt strong on the run this morning and no doubt the cool temperatures helped. I know the great conversation never hurts.
