Pedaling in a run and other fun on a beautiful Saturday.

Saturday, June 15, 2013

This morning was the Chesty Puller (Father of Marines) 10K. We are not runners but as DH was a former Marine, he leads the runners in this annual event, I get to be the sweeper. there were 154 runners this year and most had really good times, the weather was perfect. We rode our bikes to the event so I was able to get my mileage in with actual effort. But the runners in the rear always enjoy the comments and good company of the sweeper.

After returning home, I went out Kayaking for an hour with a friend. Really putting the kayaks to good use this year, the water was perfect, calm and no May flies biting at us.

    I've never met a "sweeper" before. You are one very important volunteer and have a positive effect on those bringing up the rear. As the saying goes, they're lapping everyone sitting home on the couch.
