Wasn't it Mario Puzo who said if he'd realized how popular his novel, The Godfather, would become he'd have taken a lot more time to write it better? Well, that's kind of the way I feel this morning after seeing the Popular Blog Award on my post from yesterday. But thanks, SparkFriends.
Here are a few of the pictures I promised yesterday of my niece, nephew, and me before the race:
You can see a bit of the lake where we often run or walk or jog and frequently local races are here. Lake Hollingsworth, 2.84 miles around, has hundreds or probably thousands of birds, a rich variety, as well as Florida Southern College, rich with Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture. You used to see lots of boats and water skiers on this lake, but not so much recently. There are more water plants and run off is thoughtfully treated before it gets to the lake, so the ecology has improved in recent years. It is a beautiful spot and yesterday we just overlapped a little more than a quarter mile to make a 5K. The Rotary Twilight 5K I'm planning to run on Friday, February 1st, goes around this lake, but ends with the last quarter mile up a hill lit with illuminaries. I can make it!
That's all the pictures this blog will take, so I'll put the finishing pictures in the next blog. I know some of you get more pictures than that in blogs, so maybe it is my computer's limitations, although it likely is the limitation of the computer user!
Edit: Need help again from SparkFriends. When I tried to put the finishing pictures in this blog, and when I tried to put them in a separate blog I got the error message, "File too large to save." Any clue how to overcome this issue?? Thanks for any help.
