June! We’ve made it through half of the year. And half of that has been spent at home. It feels like forever ago that we were traveling. Now it’s a big deal if we get to go to the grocery store.
So we decided to make June one to remember and got married!
Eric and I had plans for a small family wedding, but as COVID-19 hit and we could see those plans potentially changing, we realized we should take this as an opportunity. When we were initially planning our wedding dates, I thought it would be meaningful to get married on June 12, Loving Day. But Loving Day 2020 was coming too soon and we didn’t want to wait til 2021 to get married, so it seemed unlikely to happen.
And of course, with all the terrible things happening around the world, we also wanted to try to find the joy. So we worked with a local officiant and got married on June 12, just the two of us. And it was perfect.
And then people kept asking us where we were going on our honeymoon, and the answer was To Our House because there is no vacationing going on right now. We could have gone camping, I suppose, but it’s hot outside.
We’ll definitely have a good story for what we did during the Great Pandemic of 2020.
When it comes to training, it’s same old same old. Races continue to get cancelled, which I expected. I technically still have one triathlon on the schedule and if it doesn’t get cancelled, I don’t expect to be racing it. I haven’t been swimming since March. Pools have opened back up, and you can make a reservation for a lap lane (if you can get one), but I’m just not sure that it’s really safe. Or worth the stress. The pools I have access to are all indoors, which makes it more concerning. I will likely join a friend at a local open water swim spot later this month, but outdoors is a lot easier – plus if it looks bad, we bail. Much more annoying when you’ve paid for a pool spot.
Biking is still all indoors, and running is half indoors, half outdoors. I managed to pull something and thankfully, my PT has opened back up and I’ve been able to get some dry needling done. It’s definitely what my body needed after three months off from PT. I’m going to have to figure out a reasonable schedule for visits. Every week really isn’t necessary at this point (though I’d love to be able to swing that). Maybe every 2-3 weeks for a tune-up would work.
So it was definitely a lighter month.
