Water & Running Update

The County came out to the farm today and started digging a hole hoping to find the valve to shut off the water. If they can't find it, they're going to install a new valve. Meanwhile, water is still running in the basement of the small house. One of my co-workers said when we put an ad in the paper to rent the house, we can advertise it as havng an indoor pool. No kidding.

On the bright side, we've got a plumber coming tomorrow, so we should have running water!! And just in time, I say, since we are going to be spending all next week there.

I did speed work at the track last night with my running group. It felt pretty good, considering I had just put in a 10 hour day at work. Tomorrow night is a 5 mile run with the group, and then I'm on my own all next week. I need to do a 16 mile long run while we're at the farm. Wish me luck. I don't have a running route there, so I guess I'll just set my Garmin and run till it says I've gone 8 miles, then head back. There's a really nice trail that runs by the farm, but it might be a little spooky if I go in there alone. Maybe we should name the farm Spooky Hollow.
