Big Numbers!

Tonight I ran three miles, pulling me to a big 197 miles in 2008. I know this is no big deal for some, but for the girl that hated running all through school and wouldn't run if my house was up in flames, this is a big deal. I'm really enjoying running and feel great for it. So I'm nearly to 200 miles! Wow! By now, I could have run to....um...Portland (almost). Thinkin' on doing a marathon next year, anyone want to join me?

AND I have 1977 hits on my blog. In exactly one year I've gotten nearly 2,000 hits. Pretty fun. Not that it's progress of any sort or all that interesting to anyone but me....

Here are some much more interesting photos of our end of summer days....

I am so glad I can catch up on your life through your blog. Way to go with running in 2008. As my mother in law would say..."You could be proud of yourself." It is a big joke in our family, as me about it later! No seriously, I am so proud of you! I've missed talking to you this week. Hopefully my life will settle down into a nice routine in a couple of weeks. Talk to you soon.
