Thank you to all who have served in the military.

Coast run after swim.

Vacation day! Spending the day with my parents. They were here a few years ago for over a week and I tool them about everywhere so there is not much they haven't seen. We are going to go back to some of the places and there are still a few new things for me to show them.
Today: Coronado, La Jolla, and Encinitas (where I am now living). They have seen Coronado & La Jolla, but they are great places to see again.

Nothing this morning. I was not really sleepy, but my body felt tired. My tailbone is still not 100% healed and I just didn't want to get on the bike this morning.

My parents arrived yesterday late afternoon! It was so good to see them!!!! I am working today, but they are going to come over and do laundry (they have been on the road for 2 weeks) and just hang out. Not sure if I will get in any workouts today. Starting work early and ending early to have more time with my parents this afternoon.

My parents will be here tomorrow evening and will be here until Tuesday morning! I am so excited!!! I am taking a vacation day on Friday. They left Cincinnati a few weeks ago and have been driving across the USA. They did this a few years ago and stopped at places like Bryce Canyon, Mt Zion, Los Vegas, etc. on the way here and then Grand Cannon, Sonoma, Nashville, etc. on the way home. They are taking a different route this time and have stopped at Mt. Rushmore, Badlands, Custard's Last Stand, Yellowstone, Redwood trees, San Francisco and are now driving down the coast to San Diego. My dad likes to drive and they are having a great time. They stop and stay in hotels along the way. It is amazing that my mom is healthy enough to do another trip like this!!! We are so fortunate. I wish I had a larger place. Mike and I don't have a room for guests. :-( My parents are staying at the hotel that is just around the corner, but I wish they didn't have to spend more money on a hotel.
