Not going to lie, running has been hard lately, my iron is low, my body tired and mind overwhelmed. I am going to forgo the workout overview and move right on to pictures of my past three weeks.
Having had no hand in my wedding planning, the week prior was a good dose as to what brides feel leading up to their wedding day, but then friends and family arrived in the Adirondacks, Keene Valley, and we rehearsed.
|Once I was getting all of the attention, little Johnny wanted to be my friend|
Weathering the cold, we were determined to have dinner under the High Peaks...
|The Brooks crew united|
Then the wedding day came. We started with a skeet shoot...
Which led to the ceremony...
Smiles and joy radiated throughout the weekend.
|Precious mom and dad|
And we all know, after a wedding ceremony, comes a big party and celebration ensued..
First, dress to be bustled
And as usual, no party is a party without the Brooks crew
And like that, the mountains were all that were left along with a happy and fulfilled bride and groom. What a weekend! And for once, I was spent, no exercise and no voice for this girl. But don't you worry, I got my groove back soon after and we hiked, and ran and hiked and ran until life decided to have us back.
|A quick hike up Indian Head|
|The heat and humidity came back to haunt us|
|A morning hike up Gothics|
|Accompanied our ranger to his post|
And then it was back in the game... onto another Brooks wedding in the Hamptons.
We rehearsed again...
And for the first time, I was an Alspach
|I am going with the pronunciation of ALL-SPA (for the record)|
|Of course I gave bunny ears|
|The lovely bride in lime green|
And from here, I kept my promise to stay until the end of the after party (although Charles may disagree) and the same day, I fought back exhaustion and made it to Steamboat Springs and am back to reality.
And with that, a reading from our wedding...
