As I mentioned yesterday we had our annual neighborhood garage sale this morning. Over 200 homes participated and it was estimated between 2500-3000 people showed up for the event! It was a freaking circus!
Annie and I stacked all of our junk in the garage last night so we could place it in the drive way in the morning. No sooner than I hit the garage door opener were people in my garage picking through our things. This was at 6am and it was still pitch dark outside! People are crazy. The good news is we sold a ton of our old fat clothes and actually made a few bucks!
We shut it down around 12:30 pm and I had some work stuff that needed to be completed at the sales office. I was then driving back home around 4pm today and proceeded to get a speeding ticket. Just wonderful!
At least I know how to spend the garage sale money. When I got pulled over I was concerned at first because I had a concealed heater strapped to the square of my back. I handed the officer my carry permit and drivers licenses and told him I was carrying. He said he thought it was great and more citizens should protect themselves in this manner. We then had a nice conversation about handguns and I was real hopeful at this point that he would just give me a warning! Well, he did not and I can't blame him because I was speeding. He was just doing his job.
Anyways, as I mentioned yesterday, today was our normally scheduled long run but because of the garage sale and both Annie and I had to work in the afternoon we would be switching it to Sunday. Sunday is normally Annie's off day and I use it to do some biking but once again my biking is getting axed. I really need to get an indoor trainer so I can do this in the dark. Too bad the garage sale money cannot go towards that!
We are going to get up early and pound out the 12 miles on the greenbelt trails of Kingwood! We are tired of running around the neighborhood so we decided to switch it up some.
