Running for Biscuits
We survived!  Thank you fall all the good thoughts, prayers, and vibes sent our way last night.  They are greatly appreciated.
 The power finally came on around 1am.
 All of Tennessee is tired today.

Trying to be brave during bad storms.

EDIT: just lost power. Could be a long night.
I may not have enough sports bras.

Packing is really exhausting for baby dogs.


I’m at least getting a bunch of steps loading and unloading boxes between the house and the storage unit.

New yard cart.


Hauls mulch and Schnauzers.

I need someone to come over and drink beer with me and sit on the deck and grill chicken and zucchini and mango.

Found a Star Trek fanny pack while cleaning out the garage. 

It’s okay to be jealous.

I was loading my bike back into my car tonight as a guy who was parked near me finished his run and came back to his car. He walked by and I smiled at him and he told me that I look like a magical midnight sky. Then he saluted me and walked away.

After my little dance in the rain yesterday, my shoes are still very damp. 


Here’s hoping the sun will dry them out by the time I leave work (on my last Friday at this job!).

Hill repeats and running in the rain.

Runners are strange creatures, guys. 

We’re strong, stubborn, focused, determined creatures.

  The rain started at 5.25 miles, and I knew I wanted to hit six.  I wasn’t going to let the rain stop me.  I slogged through the puddles and the rivers and streams the rain created.  I high fived the other runners still out on the trail. I ran hill repeats and wiped the rain from my eyes and slogged through mud.  I patted puppies on the head and smiled at strangers and made it back to my car.  My hands were so wet that I couldn’t get the touch screen on my phone to turn off MapMyRun and my socks were soggy and my shoes squished when I walked, but I made it SIX MILES.

And really, that’s all that matters.
