Saturday: Race Prep and ZOOMARun

I don't remember buying this kind of kcup?  Lucie loves to sit in any basket available.  And right there, she is sleeping where we keep the coffee kcups.   She will be up all night....more

Saturday: Pick-A-Run

Saturday started out with a pick-a-run. I headed out knowing that I would do no less than 6 and maybe as much as 8. But I wasn't really putting the pressure on myself to do the full 8 when I left. But I did it anyway....more
