This morning I ran early. Left the house about 6 AM. The sunrise was beautiful and there was a rainbow in the western sky. I ran my Monday course minus hill repeats. All was well until I got over by the Zumbro soccer fields. I was running against traffic, on the shoulder, and this grey truck moves about a foot closer to where I was running and guns his engine. Jerk. Made me jump off the shoulder. Jerk. I turned around and there was no one coming from the other direction. I don't know why people do that kind of stuff. I also decided that my current shoes feel really flat. No cush left. So I need to break in a new pair right quick. Before Wobegon.
A short time later Marie Boyd and I greeted each other. I also noticed some Virginia bluebells blooming. Which means that the Mayowood trail just might be spectacular on Saturday. :-) When I got to the top of Fox Valley Dr SW, Dr. Mulvagh, otherwise known as super-sweet Sharon :-), stopped to chat for a second. When I got home I saw 2 female wild turkeys wandering around. And 2 deer. A good day for sightings. Just a short time ago I saw Erin Carey running with the dog by the mall and then Matt and Sawra Maurer on Folwell. Matt was adjusting Sawra's derailleur cable. They obliged me with a pic.
Last night we had a Lace-Up Against Breast Cancer meeting at Laura's house. Lots of good discussion regarding the focus, mission, etc.

I still have some leftover clothing items from Fetzer. If anything looks familiar, give me a jingle.
Jim Mason gave me a really nice sweatshirt with his Chester Woods race logo on it. Runners will get the embroidered caps. The race is June 5, and it's a lot of fun and a really good workout. 5K and 10 mile options. Check out his blog: http://chesterwoodstrailrun.blogspot.com/
