In it for the long run..
Peter announced your retirement at the picnic. I will really miss your great pictures. I sure hope you will come run the races so we can still see you! I appreciate all your incredibly hard work for all these years.
"It's not who wins the workout..."
Thank you for such kind words! I told Peter and Diana that it had gotten to the point of not being fun any more. It is time to move on.
I'm doing some physical therapy right now, in hopes of loosening up some creaky bones so that I can enjoy running, cycling and swimming again. I'll be around.
I intend to photograph the Monkey again this year.......
Yay about the Monkey. I hope you get your bones un-creaked and we'll see you around the park and elsewhere!
Elly is awesome!
Good for you for knowing when to say when even though we'll miss you and your great pictures.

Elly!! You will be missed as a friendly face in the middle of races. Good luck on the uncreaking and maybe I will see you at the Monkey. Maybe.
I don't half-ass anything

I'll be there with encouragement...hope you make the Monkey!
