Of course, you all know ("[groan] Not another adventure racing post!!") that adventure racing is pretty much my favorite topic, but I won't pretend I'm not slightly worried that I'll be able to keep coming up with interesting posts. Right now I've got several in the pipeline, though, so I think I've got October covered! This past Friday's post was about building a personal adventure network. Check it out and let me know what you think! :)
By the way, if you missed my report on this year's Berryman adventure race, it's right here.
In other news (so much for staying on topic!), I had a great weekend. Friday night, Jeff and I took our youngest to the drive-in to see ParaNorman (meh...I thought it was ok. I did think there were some kind of scary/gross things and inappropriate language/topics for the target kid audience, but J loved it).

After a much-needed nap, Jeff and I went on an actual date at Taste of St. Louis. It's very much not my husband's thing, unfamiliar food and packed crowds, but it was fun...and it wasn't a movie which seems to always be our default date. I had Ethiopian food for the first time. I loved the beef samosa, and thought the doro wat was ok. It was fun to try something different because it's pretty rare for us to not go to the same old place.
As you know, Sunday is football day at my house, so while my fantasy football team was busy getting destroyed (again), I went to Alton to help out with registration at the cyclocross race. Lots of familiar faces, and I got to sort of see some of my Team Godzilla friends race (flashes of green zipping behind the registration pavilion). Good job Robin, Wade, Russ, Mike, and Terry! One of these days I'll be out there with you...maybe.
