I Live in Iowa: Week 156

This was a rather long week. I am still tired. I'll probably be in bed by 8:15 tonight. 

The big obvious highlight of my week was going back to WPI in Massachusetts for a wedding of a friend. We had a blast! We're all older and neither night did we stay out to even 10:30, but the maturity makes the conversations so much deeper and substantial. Wow, my friends are awesome! When I say I have the best life in the world, I say that because of my friends, I have the best friends in the world. 

What a world we live in?! I go to weddings and they are often an hour long in a church, very planned. This wedding was seven minutes and the husband and wife each said their vows and the female justice of the peace said her lines, and that was it. There was not even any "Here Comes the Bride" music. 

Unfortunately for you all I'm not going to go into much detail because, well, you had to be there. There were a couple funny incidents. So I am technically friends with the bride and bridesmaids and at one point there were seven of us out dancing and I was the only man out there. It's just funny. I was looking at the husbands and boyfriends and thinking, 'come on! Get out here!' Fortunately they all did for at least a few songs. Also, if you want to try perhaps the best tequila, Don Julio 1942 might just be the best in the world. It's so good, you can drink it neat. 

Work was good. I had an opportunity to work with FEA from the design side. In other words, submitting geometry to the FEA person for analysis. Well, it only took five days and three geometry renditions on my side, another nine geometry tries on his side changing curves. In short, one of the fastest projects we work through between design and FEA. My experience does help me and the company. 

I ran about 67-68 miles including Tuesday totally off although I have logged my mileage yet. A long run of 16 miles at 6:55ish pace with a 6:18 and 6:03 mile in there. I also did some strides and I'm doing band work for my lateral weaknesses. This week the goal is a tempo and long run and more lateral exercises. 

Bring on the next week!
