Windstorm update

Update on the storm the blew through Southcentral here. Looks like the winds must have gotten up to 70 mph! Actually the issue was not the big wind gusts, but the constancy of the wind. In our neighborhood, there was minimal damage -- our fence was broken, and a neighbor's tree came out of the ground.

The week continues to be a bit of a bummer following the Humpy's no-show. Running at Exceed yesterday consisted of many trail runs up and down short hills. That is not my favorite terrain, and I did not bring the right shoes. Argh! However, the potluck was great afterwards.

Next week is the last exceed training, and then the infamous beatings will begin in the Tuesday night race series -- or as I call them, the pain fests. I remember slogging through swamps, climbing sand dunes, encountering moose, twisting ankles, and a lot of MUD and WATER. Not always my type of thing, but it's good for me, right?

Hey Anne --

You can turn on word verification on your blog which *might* get rid of spam...maybe. I'm trying it out so let's see...

Due to the wind storm, I have a great collection of garbage can lids in my back yard.
