Last night Matt and I went to Paul and Colleen's running party. It was great to see many of our running friends and to catch up on every one's adventures. Dress code was that we HAD to wear a 100 mile buckle in order to miss washing dishes, so we all wore our buckles. A few had them on their belts, Lynn used her Vermont 100 buckle as a broach on her dress, and a few of us hung them from a cord around our necks. It was a whole lot of fun. Lot's of stories, lot's of laughs, and of course, lot's of good food! Lynn, me, Florencia, and Leslie posing with our buckles! Suz missed out on a pic because she left too early!





My good friend Stephen and I. We have had some really good times together in the past. I paced Stephen in 2006 at Hardrock 100 and it was an unforgettable adventure. I have so much respect for him and it was great to see him last night.



I just saw that OJ Simpson was found guilty to all the charges against him in his last smart move. How sad that as he sits in prison, he will not be able to continue his search for Nicole's killer. (sniff,sniff)


We had our first rain of the year last night and boy did it pour! I am so relieved that I don't have to water everything. Naomi and I ran for a little over an hour in Annadel this morning and only got rained on for a few minutes. It was fun to catch up with her and fill her in on AC 100 pacing and crewing duties.

Next Saturday I am running in Firetrails 50 miler. I don't know what to expect, so the only guarantee is that I will show up. Hopefully, I will have a good race. Anywhoo, I hope that you all have a great weekend and that you enjoy your day.

if I can get a ride, I'm going to try to come volunteer at Firetrails! (I'll be the one in the pink cast... probably pretty easy to pick out of the crowd!)
