|Fall colors at Waterfall Glen|
A hodgepodge of the week and why running is joyful:
full lunar eclipse early Wednesday morning. Worth getting up early.
My fussy-eater five-year-old actually finding a veggie he would eat -- the "tree" part of cooked broccoli.
Discovering a amazon.com box in my living room late Friday that contained a camelbak, something trail runners and ultra marathoners use -- great for carrying food and liquids. It was a complete surprise gift from one of my running buddies. I was so touched and choked up at her thoughtfulness--she even got it in pink/purple, my colors!!
|Not exactly my camelbak, but you get the idea. So cool!|
Thanks to a gracious running friend, finding my first-ever pair of trail shoes, Mizuno Wave Ascend -- and for a great price.
|Mizuno Wave Ascend -- in my high school colors to boot|
