Alaskan Summer Part II

August is here, so summer is basically over. Mega sad face. While the rest of the U.S. is baking, I'm already drinking hot tea as a necessity.
Stupid Alaska.

This summer I started racing.
I ran in two 5k's and one 10k.
I think I'm in love.

Run For Good 5k
Time: 24:52
Run for Relief 5k
Time: 25:20
Chucky ran too!
Anchorage 10k Classic
Time: 55:16
My dad is my race day companion. He ran this race 30 years ago, and his high school buddy (and olympian) still holds the race record.

There was also grilling:

(Note my sweater in July)

We went fishing, except not really. It's called dip-netting (aka cheating). You hold a giant net in the water and there are so many fish that they just kinda swim into it. It's a slaughter.

I don't even like salmon.

There were dinner dates:

 And I found this awesome baby picture of me. Born hipsta!
 I took golf lessons. Driving the cart is like being at disneyland.

 And I tried on awful motorcycle jackets...

Yeah, Chuck and I did a lot together this summer, but I think the best is yet to come...

It's a one-way ticket.
