Farewell Friday!

Friday is just about over and I could not be more thrilled.  Not exactly the best of Fridays for many reasons of which I am not even going to attempt to regurgitate for you.

And 1 more makes 9
Tomorrow is "Long Run Saturday" as I so fondly call it these days.  I have actually gotten to the point that I enjoy it.  Yes, stop rubbing your eyes, I said ENJOY!  I can hardly believe it myself!  Tomorrow's run will leave me just 4.1 miles away from my goal.  Who ever would have thought I would or could run 13 miles?!  Certainly not me!  Here is part of the trail I'll see tomorrow.  Great view of the river.

Thursday morning's run brought a first for me and that was a run in the rain.  I got half way thru my run and onto my favorite bridge, when it started pouring rain.  I tried my best to tuck away my iPod and headphones, and to shield my phone as best as I could.  As I trudged along this was what was going thru my head:
     Rain Rain go away, you soaked me thru on my run today
     And if you ruined my iPod I say, there will, there will be hell to pay!
In response, my sister replied:
     Sarah, Sarah, Silly one.  Why take your iPod on your run?
     Fred Astaire showed us simple and plain
     You're supposed to sing and dance thru the rain!

Thought that was pretty good.  I leave you with a picture of my favorite bridge over the Arkansas river and bid you Adieu!
