Mountain weekend


This one time, I went to go bike riding and the place we were renting the bikes from had a huge, snoozing potbellied pig at the door. That time was today. It was a pretty good day. 


The day before (that would be yesterday), I did my first 5k. Note I said "did" and not "ran" because "did" is vague and non-committal and "ran" implies, you know, running. I ran some. Running is hard, y'all. (Pic is of me and my dad and my sister-in-law -- the one who's married to my brother as opposed to the one who is related to my husband.)


This is the view from the porch of my parents' beautiful home in the mountains. I love the North Carolina mountains. They're old and gorgeous and full of bluegrass music (and also home to the occasional pot-bellied pig).

That pig is something else! Cute but in a sort of ugly way (no offense intended, pig!). Congratulations on doing the 5k.

The picture of the pig just became my desktop's background. Congrats on the 5k! Running is hard. I went running this Saturday for the first time since Oct. and my legs are still sore this morning.

Wow, that is a BIG pot-bellied pig (I always thought they were kind of cool). Good for you for doing the run--it doesn't matter whether you ran, walked, strolled, etc.

Of course you saw a pig like that in WNC. All the magical fun stuff happens there - I am so homesick for that area, it's ridiculous. Glad you had a great time!

That pig is gigantic! And I know what you mean. Running is much harder that it seems. Also, that view is wonderful. Everything looks so green!
