G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. weather today! Can't get much better than "74 over 46" in mid June in Ohio.

Last Saturday Holly and I ran our first post-partum 5K. You may recall that we ran a 5K together in February, 2013 when she was still In utero. I have been back to running at regular intervals since early May. Given that I've not run 5 Km since February, 2013 and that I have never pushed Holly for longer than 2 miles, I think we did OK. Despite our relatively slow time we somehow managed to place 3rd in my age group! Say what!?

Here are the details:
Time: 33:17 min
Pace: 10:43 min/mile
Overall: 69/115
Females: 24/57
Age Group: 3/5

Here are a few more pictures from the race!

UPDATE: our house AC appears to work just fine. Yay!

In other news, my birthday was concluded with the likes of tornado warnings, tornado sirens, a baby roused from sleep because of said siren, and a good deal of quality time in our basement. Fortunately there were no tornado reports and we are no worse for the wear. I guess Mother Nature wanted to celebrate my birthday, too.

In the span of 24 hours we learned that our dish washer is broken and my car's air conditioner is broken. They say things tend to happen in triplicate. So ... what's next?

The dish washer leaks water all over the kitchen floor. Despite all kinds of evaluation of "typical" car air conditioner problems (freon charge, fuse, clutch relay, etc...), Mike and my brother have determined my AC clutch is out. The trouble is you can't get a clutch without a compre$$or.

Its getting warmer outside these days - Mike and I are afraid to turn on our home's AC ...

In the grand scheme of things this is all minor ... I know.
