Monday, September 15, 2014      7 comments

I know - it's the slogan, but the Color Run really was fun and happy. The traffic and parking were bad- I didn't know there would be 10,000 paricipants! It was crazy. I got there and actually ran into my college son. I got my swag and gave ... Read more

The 40th anniversary YMCA 4th of July race was this AM. It was wonderfully cool (60). I did the 5K course which is technically a run (the walk is 2 miles) but it's a much more fun course. One girl who jogged up to me around 3/4 mile said "Yo... Read more
