A CHEERful Weekend

It's marathon Monday! Yes, indeed. It's the day after the weekend of marathons!  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WHO RAN THIS WEEKEND! I feel like it's too many to name, but AWESOME JOB EVERYONE! Twitter was alive and inspiring me like always...alas, no trigger finger on a 26.2 register button. I'm not THAT inspired ;-) 

I had the privilege of going to cheer for Ashley and Laura at the ING Hartford Marathon on Saturday. Mr. Miller joined me, and it was a fantastic day to spectate!!! It was a warm day, and runners certainly earned their medals. Read about Ashley's 4th marathon and Laura's 98th marathon!!!

 Can you imagine I was so distracted by cheering that I didn't see her coming in the blue hair?!

 This girl is FIERCE!!! Such a strong marathon in hot conditions.

My childhood friend Stephanie was all smiles to the finish!

A weekend in Connecticut wouldn't be complete without some scenic views! On Sunday, Mr. Miller and I went hiking on Case Mountain. We brought Lambeau Puppy because the trail isn't challenging; some minor climbs but a clear path on a three mile loop. HE WAS A TROOPER! I have never seen this dog so happy. Off the leash, roaming, and staying with us the whole time. Unfortunately in the last mile, he fell into a bit of a mud puddle that SMELLED AWFUL. He got a bath when he got home, much to his chagrin. 

I know I know...same outfit! IT WAS CLEAN I PROMISE! ;-)

We experimented with running. He did okay but enjoys sniffing every leaf too much to keep going.

Then, of course, there was cheering for the Packers!!! We got my dad to put on some Packers apparel for the juju. (If you don't know what that is, watch Silver Linings Playbook. There is no meme for this. So sad.)

It worked! WE WON! Also, have you seen the Budweiser Quinoa commercials? Hilarious.

How about you? Did you race this weekend? Did you do something "Fall"? Are you a Giants fan in hiding? TELL ME ABOUT IT!
