    Keep me posted.  Maybe we can see each other.

     

    Coralie - sounds like a good way to do a Color Run.  Did the kids enjoy it?

     

    Philliefan and D2- sounds like you both had good runs.  It was beautiful here too.

     

    Scotty - happy birthday for real this time.

     

    Damaris - I have no idea where we're going to end up.  We always play our trips by ear.  We go to various State Parks where we can camp and hike and I can run.  We had intended to go out to Arizona this year, but there are some family issues that make this a bad time to visit.  Last year we stayed in northern Florida and were along the shore during a really cold spell, though it warmed up after a bit.  Our previous trip we went all the way to Key West - in the rain - so didn't get to enjoy it much.  And that was a cold winter anyhow, even in Florida.  The trip before that was mostly central and northern Florida.  Florida has a lot of state parks, so who knows where we'll end up.

     

    My run today was a mixture.  I wasn't feeling a lot of energy, despite the sunshine.  It took a long time to warm up, and I was having a really hard time with the hills.  I started to do a big loop that ends with a long climb but after 5 1/2 miles I decided I really wasn't feeling it, so I called my husband to meet me at the ice cream shop (thanks Lauren!) and we had some ice cream for lunch.  I got cold and stiff eating it, so I went home, drank some water, and got on the treadmill to finish out my 8 miles.  Doing so much running on the TM makes it really hard when I do go outside because my lungs just don't handle the hills well.  I know it will get better with practice, but I'm still at the stage where every molehill feels like a mountain.

          I don't think either works.  The second one takes me to some pictures but I'm not sure what you were trying to post.
