Love my new running partner and route!! Lewisville was so gorgeous this morning, perfect temp, light fog- delightful.  We got in 8 miles, close enough to the 9 I needed.  I felt really good today too!!! 

So- I've been going around telling everyone that I think I'm over marathons- no desire to run another.  But MAN! These SGM race reports are really getting to me! Maybe...just maybe...

 The blog has really changed in the last 2 yrs.  A lot of my old buddies have had major life changes and just aren't able to post much...missing Kim, Lybster, Marcie...glad to see Mik'L is posting more though :).  But as I read through the race reports today I see a spunky crowd that I hadn't noticed before.  I feel re-energized about the blog.  There is some great energy on here that I've overlooked, but I'll be watching more closely now!

Before I headed out to my run this morning, I looked at the weather. I saw a lot of yellow on the weather map over NC and other parts of the east. I had no idea what yellow meant--snow? no. thunderstrom? no. It was fog. How fun you were out running in it! I bet it was picturesque!
