Ode to some handsome Marines!
Saturday, September 19, 2009
I had an excellent day today at the 2009 Marine Mud Run! I haven't been training long enough to run it but I have been a volunteer at the event in Salem, Va. for several years. My annual tradition is to have my pic taken with any Marines that I can get together. This year they had a display of all sorts of different guns and I managed to sneak over and get my pic taken. The guys this year were great, very polite (quite attractive I must say- hey I don't get out much, give me this little bit of pleasure!)
I felt better having my pic taken since I have lost some weight. I still have quite a bit to go but I had a good feeling today. I managed to get my exercise in before and after the event. I even organized some of my basement area and finished off Stephen King's The Stand on DVD while I walked on the treadmill. Also four loads of clothes done and I am worn out!
I have put the Mud Run on my bucket list... It may take some time before I'm ready but I'll enjoy the journey!
