Blogging Visitor Due Saturday!

ORN: 5 miles, with (2) one mile repeats at 8:47 & 8:52

After shipping the morning daylight to all my evening running friends about six weeks ago, I'm once again starting to see the pre-dawn sky at the end of my morning runs. On a clear day like today, it is a wonderfully complex and subtle mix of grays, purples, pinks and blues. To see this, along with the return of singing birds is a joyful celebration of early spring.

For our local runners and fellow bloggers who ran the Boston Marathon yesterday, well, they would have given much to hear a chirping bird or to see the sky. I'm amazed at the performances turned in with the "wicked bad" weather in Beantown. Congratulations to each!

What a treat awaits me and my family on Saturday! Blogging buddy
Darrell will be spending the night at our house! Business travel all lined up that our place is right on the way between his necessary stops in Indianapolis and Chicago, so I’m looking forward to it. We had so much fun in December when he completed and I bonked on the Tecumseh Trail Marathon that I’m looking forward to the visit again. Yes, we talk running, but much more than that. We have much in common. I’m glad he’ll get to meet my family as well. We'll both post photos.

The welcome mat is out for all other running bloggers! Stop on by!!

Eric and I talk about buying a motorhome and wandering the states, visiting friends, running races and trails, just wandering. Wouldn't that be something?

Have fun with Darrell - leave him well-rested for Eugene!

It's a small world after all.
Best of all it's full of RBFers.

I'm driving to school when the sky looks like that. I love it. As Michelle says, keep Darrell rested. We are looking forward to meeting up with him too! So neat to have those opportunities!

I'd like to place my order for one of those gray, purple, pink and blue skies.

I really should get packing for the trip and yes the running stuff will be the first thing into the suitcase.
