Where it all began


My first race EVER, 4 years ago...

I'm still after one of these gals.

It was bound to happen

I met a SNAKE.
Having it's LUNCH.

A Flower Does Not Talk
Silently a flower blooms
In silence it falls away,
Yet here now, at this moment, at the place,
the whole of the flower,
the whole of the world is blooming
This is the truth of the flower, the truth of the blossom;
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here...

I BROUGHT my camera...

I just didn't RUN with it today.

So here are some SPRINGBURST 8K pics...

NOT during the race, but before and after.


Springburst 8K! I won my age group!

I ran more than one full minute faster than I ran this same course last year (I didn't run with my camera today)!
And last year's #1 in my age group has moved on to the NEXT age group. I TRIED to keep up to her (I didn't know she'd moved out of the age group until AFTER the race), which is probably why my time was so good today. Even though it was HOT. This is a group shot of award-winning Montgomery County Road Runners. (One of my clubs, obviously!)

Clyde's 10K Blossoms!

If I hadn't volunteered, and had just stayed at home, I'd have missed all these beautiful sights!!
