    Here’s what I have for last week’s tally.

    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

        Not sure - It will depend on how the achillies is feeling.  Last week I tried to drown it in beer, but it didn't help

            43 miles this week. I just love the cool October evenings and jogging on damp leaf covered trails.
