Public Service Announcement....

As a postscript to yesterday's post I feel the need to be informative.

To all my Running and WannaBeRunning Friends...please take note of this video.  It's VERY important to pay attention and learn from this video:

Funny thing is I do see a couple of these guys all the time on the Greenway when I run!

On and On....

Yes, we've had a mild winter but there have been some REALLY cold mornings for running but the training must go on....51 days and counting till the Shamrock Half Marathon!

This past Saturday was a total wash out on getting my normal group run in, so I had to go solo on Sunday...and it wasn't much better, oh yeah it was dry--but freezing temps!!

Pretty appropriate name for a headband huh??

Where Are The Girlz?

(forgive the lens created a vignette on these)

You know it's a cold and damp Monday when you go out to the one end can't find your birds!

Look closely...they are in there.  I went to the other end only to see this:

ALL 5 girlz stacked on top of each other in a nesting area made for 1!!!!

**Note the rope lighting...yes, the girlz have disco lights for late night parties!  No...really it's for the winter months to "trick" them into more daylight hours to continue to get eggs during the winter.  I turn those lights on way before daylight and turn them off at dusk.  Only tonight I found them like this and nearly wet my pants laughing at them.  The cackling that was going on was SO hilarious!  I'm sure in hen talk it was..."would you PLEASE get your claws out of my back"....or "would you mind....."
Look at Henny Penny on top looking straight at me!  I tell you not a day goes by that they don't bring me to complete side-splitting laughter.  I recently bought them some special treats (meal worms)--let me tell you I AM the "Treat Goddess"!!!!

Happy New Year!!

Well...I did it anyway!  We met some friends last night at our favorite Mexican establishment...and I had ONE too many margaritas!  Needless to say I didn't feel so good last night OR this morning. UGH!!

BUT I made myself go run...the 23rd Annual run to the Mill Mtn Star, for those who are not familiar with the area this run gains almost 900 feet in 3 miles.  I guess I am a glutton for punishment, but I have to say I really started feeling better after I started running. Once the steep park kicked in I had to walk/run/walk/run!

We had about 100 runners and walkers ascend to the Star...and a photo op to document the beginning of 2012.

HAPPY NEW's to running/walking in 2012!!!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
