“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!”
― Dr. Seuss

I feel that I'm having a petty good start to the new year and just wanted to spread some of my enthusiasm (who knows how long it will last).

YOU CAN DO IT!

I guess you will need to copy and paste the link. Apparently you can't imbed live links in the comments section.

Oh WOW! I am so close to Cary, NC. If you ever decide on one of those Tobacco Road Runs HM, please let me know. I think it maybe 30 minutes max away from where I am. Midtown Raleigh- use to be N Raleigh.
