Ahh,and what a fine run on the PRT. The sun wasn't out, the path was wet and slushy and there was just a little breeze on the northbound leg of the run. And there were critters all over the place. Must have seen about 50 Mule deer, 2 or more skunks, 1 little starving golden/red fox and a whole bunch of dogs and cats. Amazingly enough not a single bird anywhere when there were earthworms all over the blacktop pathway!

Oh well, it was a great 8 and we now have 14 days and a wakeup and it's time for the running of Boston......

Oh ... poor little fox.

(14 days until I am glued to my laptop and blocking out the sounds of my professors as those splits pop up!)

Thanks TM : This year should be a much better run than 2009, if you know what I mean.

Thanks for running with me Saturday. I have been listening to my feet and I think it is helping. I had a much better run today (Monday)

Kathie - good for you! It's those little tip along the way that make running happy and injury free. 14 days till Boston and I can't wait. Went to the store Sunday and bought all my pasta carb loading supplies. By the way Ms. Kathie, what is your bib number!!!!
