Great Morning Run

I had an awesome morning run this morning, 5.1 miles, my furthest since the marathon back on 4/13/08! Yea! The morning was perfect, partly sunny, cool around 54F, light breeze, quiet back roads, and mist lifting off the fields and golf course. The only way it could have been any better is if Tammy had been with me spitting on herself during the course of the run! BAH! She's not a very accomplished spitter. Sorry, Honey, but it's the truth.

Our local highschool won their football game last night 33 - 7 against a school they were supposed to get buried by. This is quite exciting as Bedford has a losing history in football. When I say history, I mean they have had like 5 winning seasons in the past 50 years. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but not much. Lindsey (and her 8th grade band-mates) got to play with the marching band during the half time program. She thought it was going to be *lame*, but I think ended up having a good time with it.

Our church is having its annual (12th, I think?) Classic Car and Motorcycle Show tomorrow. It's our biggest event of the year and we usually draw about 300 vehicles to the show. Cars, motorcycles, music (our worship band is doing a set at 1:00 with tunes from Brown-Eyed Girl and Pretty Woman to Huey Lewis, Chicago, and the Doobie Brothers), food, friends, and fun. If you're in the area, stop by and check it out. It doesn't cost anything, unless you want to eat, then it's only $9.00 for a home made bbq chicken or pulled pork dinner. If you have a strong stomach, you can hear me singing and playing with the band at 1:00.

Have a great weekend and... GO STATE!

Woo hoo!!! Way to go on the run! Tammy, don't worry about the spitting - I can't do it and my snot rockets land on my cheek :-)

Hope everything goes well with the car show. If we weren't a couple of hours away, we'd probably be over.

Have a great Sunday!

Aren't morning runs glorious this time of year??? It makes me want to get out of bed early every day!

I'm glad your Spartans took care of the Irish. It's going to be a long year for the Wolerines...

Hi ya, Rick! I'm alive and kicking! Recovering nicely from a nearly 2 week vacation. Why do we always have to 'recover' from our vacations? LOL!

Congrats on logging your first 5 miler since your injury. I can almost feel that 54F weather! Unfortunately I won't actually see anything even remotely close to that until Jan/Dec. Argh!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the 'Luv2Nap' photo below. With the rest stop sign in the pic... it's priceless! You should send it to Leno! Hmmm... I wonder if that plate is taken in FL? *scratches head* I am ALL about my naps!!

Are y'all having fun playing with the new toy at the fire station? :o)
