She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
You'll ruin your knees!
I don't care who you are. That's funny!

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Ha, and how timely...just got this in an e-mail from backroadrunner:
My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount on both....
*They Walk Among Us and They Vote!!!!!!*
He should have bought 10 cases.
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago.

There has been a rash of arson cases on the Indy Southside. Mostly abandoned homes or old garages. Well the guy arrested for them had bragged to someone that he was the one burning the places to keep the police too busy attempting to solve them and not worry about the bigger rash of home robberies. Then thinking he had made and error in telling this guy he paid him $100 to keep his mouth shut. And promptly robbed the home of the guys mother.
Hope it is OK I have not run since 5 May. Better start back soon as I am starting to dream about the Sept race and not being ready
