Its game one of the post-season for the Twins. Let's hope it's a win against those *%$^ Yankees! < Cuddyer just hit a two-run home run. Hip, hip, hooray!! > And ... Randy Moss is a Minnesota Viking again! Whether you're a Moss fan or not (I am), you have to admit that he does make things exciting. : ) On a local level, Kevin Torgerson is directing a first annual race ...The 1st Annual Nightbeat 5K Run/Walk and 2 Mile Walk on Friday evening, october 15 at 7 pm. It's a law enforcement memorial fundraiser. Online registration on Running Room or more info on RTC website. < A Rod just struck out (third out) ... SWEET!!> I heard from Mike Schmitt that he might bring his brand new daughter Lucy to OSS (here) on Saturday morning to show her off. I hope so. I LOVE babies. Millie says she will probably : ) be going to Boston as well. I found out last night that Jim Li is staying at the same hotel as a bunch of us. Yippee!!
My friend Sheila from book club stopped by the office just as I was getting to work and asked if I wanted to host the holiday book club gathering as I do a lot of Christmas decorating. Sure thing! She suggested The Girls of Ames as the book as it's a light read and of somewhat local interest.
Yesterday when I was biking, as a minivan drove by me really close, I decided that I should probably have some kind of id on me when I'm biking. So I'm going to order a RoadId for my biking shoes as well. I've got several $15 gift certificates, which makes the cost of one $4.95. Let me know if you want one.
There's still for more riders on the Team R.E.D. bus going to the Living History Farms run/race on November 20. I'm signed up and it should be a blast. See the R.E.D. website for more info as well as a get-together tomorrow evening at the Ryan's home for an opportunity to run and/or watch game 2 of the Twins/Yankees series.
I see that my favorite shoes, asics 2150s, are now $89.00 at Running Room. That's a $10 price decline. Not a sale price they say, but a permanent price reduction. Sweet.
I brought dinner to my friend Jeanne, who broke a bone in her leg/ankle while inline skating on the Douglas Trail a couple of weeks ago ...
I brought them ...
|Green Beans Amandine|
|Baked Potato Soup|
|Cookies, strawberry jam and bread|
Today's morning workout: lift, hamstring exercises, one hour swim. Tomorrow: another long bike ride to enjoy the spectacular weather we're blessed with this week. Probably an early morning Stairmaster workout as well.
Well, I think I'll now devise some routes for Saturday. I'll post them tomorrow.
