Prettyboy Reservoir 10K

Soft trail underfoot for most of the race.
A big turn-out for this race!
Hands-on volunteers!

A short walk to the start scared off two walkers!

Piece of Cake 10K

On Friday, I baked my cake. On Saturday, the kids ran first. Unhappily...
Then the adults ran (happily or unhappily!)

Aided by the volunteers (HAPPILY!)


Happy Birthday,

Montgomery County Road Runners Club!

So many marathons...

But just one set of legs...

This sounds GOOD!
Run all three and you get a special Finisher's prize! (I like special prizes!)

But then there's also this set: The Rock and Roll 'thons and halves -

And then there are all my various local (and semi-local) marathons and club championships...
National Marathon
Charlottesville Marathon,
Frederick Marathon, Half-Marathon, and Team Relay,
The Under Armour Baltimore Marathon, Relay, Half-Marathon, and 5K,
George Washington Marathon/Marathon Relay

And that doesn't even take into account MUST-DO marathons. Like NYC


Hmmm...what's my projected LIFESPAN? AND how long can my hips hold out?

Saturday's Race: Super Sligo

4 miles? 4.1 miles? 4.2 miles?
Every place you looked, there was a different race distance posted...so who knows?
The kids did their Fun Run first, along the sidewalk.

All about ME ME ME. In a fairly mindless and inaccurate manner.

Meaning, you're rarely cynical or jaded.
You cherish all of the details in life.
Easily fascinated, you enjoy experiencing new things.

You Are 40% Weird

Normal enough to know that you're weird...
But too damn weird to do anything about it!

Your Brain's Pattern

You have a dreamy mind, full of fancy and fantasy.
You have the ability to stay forever entertained with your thoughts.
People may say you're hard to read, but that's because you're so internally focused.
But when you do share what you're thinking, people are impressed with your imagination.

Your Blogging Type is Artistic and Passionate

You see your blog as the ultimate personal expression - and work hard to make it great.
One moment you may be working on a new dramatic design for your blog...
And the next, you're passionately writing about your pet causes.
Your blog is very important - and you're careful about who you share it with.

You are

Arty Kid

Whether you were a drama freak or an emo poet, you definitely were expressive and unique.

You're probably a little less weird these days - but even more talented!

Your Eyes Should Be Green

Your eyes reflect: Striking attractiveness and danger

What's hidden behind your eyes: A vivid inner world
