As for me, I just home brewed a batch of IPA while following reports of my friends on Facebook. I haven't home brewed in nearly a decade, so I had to relearn it all again and it's really not that hard. Everything went nicely without any real hitches, thanks in large part to Kate's help.

One week until Sugarloaf. The mindset is pretty relaxed and confidence is high, which is nice. Going to take it really light this week. I figure with Boston five weeks ago along with a pretty full training week the other week, rest is of a top priority. Tomorrow off and all very short and easy runs this week, aside from one day (likely Wednesday) where I'll do a couple of miles at MP to keep the legs fresh.
Ran 4.6 miles @ 9:06/mile pace.
Trails and dirt roads.
