Running in the Streets ...

What a beautiful day it was today. The air was clear, crisp and cool. We went to Fairhope again for another run. This was the second year for the run. You know, you'd think a beach town would be flat; but I don't think they have a flat street there! We ran many of the streets that we did last weekend. The run was mostly up a steep least for 2 miles straight. We were excited to see many young, healthy families running. More children and teens ran than I believe I've seen. As a matter of fact, the first woman that came in was 35 years old with a time of 22:54 (7:22 pace) and get this...pushing a double stroller with two of her small children in it!! Can you believe this?? There were even THREE 5-year olds!! Yeah, they ran the 5k, NOT the one miler that followed. I love the name of the run, Running in the Streets, and the shirts are just so cute.
This is the front.

This is the back. The image was so cute, too. Sponsors were listed underneath the picture but I cropped them out.

Page and Palette Foundation put it on. They are a book store that reminds me so much of the one in "You've Got Mail" with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Remember The Shop Around The Corner? Anyway, later that afternoon they had Dancing in the Streets, which they've done for a few years now. We did not stay for that. It cost to partake and several hours away. Kent won first place in his age group and I won second place.

The awards were prints ready for framing. Right above the grill of the truck is printed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Place. Check out the rifle on the gun rack behind Pete, the driver; and the deer head image on the back window. On the right front fender is written "Country Boys Can Survive".

Want some advice? U should make the font of your words with a darker color.

Thank for the advice on my colors! It looks fine on my end but, of course, it needs adjusting if it isn't seen well and I want others to visit me!

Thanks again,

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
