The New Guest Bathroom

To start, I dug up an email that had the original blueprints for the house, and used a program to draw out new plans for the basement. It was then that I noticed that the bathroom that our builders designed was really strange. Fortunately, for a small fee (in the grand scheme of things) we could have all of that dug up and moved around, since I still wanted the bathroom in that general location.

May Races

With the excellent May weather and Utah people still holding strong to their decision to spend as much time out of doors as possible, we still had trouble with using local parks for our races.

And in all of our times running the trail we still hadn’t come across any dead bodies NOR had we been murdered. So we used it for both virtual races.

April Races

As I am a very stubborn person, I wasn’t about to let my aversion for running races on courses I had to plan, with water I had to bring, and cheerfulness I had to invent, get in the way of running 20 races this year. The problem we ran (hahah) into was that everyone seemed to be taking the CoVid-19 precautions / stay-at-home orders to mean: go outside when you’ve never done so before! Congregate with your neighbors and all their children and don’t wear masks! Lick toilet seats! Or I don’t know what the voices in some people’s heads are saying, that’s just mine.
