The weekend ended with very sad news however. Grandma Ledford passed away unexpectedly Sunday morning. I am so thankful Mom and I got to visit her in August. She is much loved and missed. It is hard to believe she is gone.

I went to Chicago for the Society of Women Engineers National Conference. It was a good trip though tiring. I also got to go out to Oak Park to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio as well as do a walking tour of the neighborhood and see a number of houses he had a hand in.

I competed in my first triathlon on Sunday. I finished and wasn't last! That was my goal. The swim didn't go as planned but I completed it and moved on. It was a sprint distance triathlon so 500 yard swim, 13.5 mile bike, and 3.4 mile run. I finished in 2:08:52 and was happy to accomplish it. I've been training towards this since last December when I started the Couch to 5k running program. I did it with 4 other friends. This triathlon was in Heber Springs, Arkansas.
The day before the triathlon we went hiking at Mt. Nebo near Russellville, Arkansas. It was a beautiful day. We took the 3.5 mile loop Rim Trail for some great views.
