    Fun Run…

    Lots of Writers… Up early again this morning for a fun run before the predicted giant wind hit. So it was a beautiful morning. Ron and Lisa Collins and Dave and Brenda Hendrickson joined me and Kris. Then we went off to a fun breakfast downtown after the run. So since I am beyond tired, I’m going to let the picture speak for themselves. 1… Me before dawn trying to pin on a number. Safety pins and tired humans do not mix. 2… Kris looking bright and cheerful at the ungodly hour. 3… Dave and Brenda   4… Ron and I finishing the race. 5.. Ron and Dave doing strange…

    Went Running…

    Well, Sort of… Kris and I and Lisa did a live, in-person race this morning. One of the few the state has allowed to happen. We went out in 25 person waves every thirty minutes, and even inside each wave we were spread apart. Very safe. Beautiful day, sunny, in the 60s. Typical Vegas December day. I managed to run just over a mile of the three miles, walked the rest. Not exercising much for three weeks since the marathon and still slightly sore feet made this an easy one. Kris beat me by a long ways and she’s nursing a sore knee. And I think Lisa tied her best…

    Well, That Was Fun…

    Actually the Run Was Fun… Then I got home and couldn’t load the first assignment to the Anthology workshop group list. So after giving it some time and a dozen different tries, I created an entire new workshop on Teachable that no one could see but the people I sent direct links to it. And I put the first assignment in the anthology workshop there. Did a cover for it and everything. And just about as I was about to start emailing everyone in the workshop with the code, I tried one more time and ended up loading the assignment. So if anyone in the anthology workshop has not gotten…

    Running On Hot Pavement…

    Yeah, That’s a Good Idea… But for a good cause and we raised some money for it, so we did it. The course was around and through a mall and its parking lot. The race started late and it was over eighty degrees and bright sun when we finally started. I ran most of the first mile, then settled into a plan. I would run in the sun, walk the shade. So I ended up around 40 minutes or so. I think. Pretty good pace and I didn’t push myself at all. So fun. And here are some pictures of me and Kris. And yes, Gavin, our cat really is…

    Another Fun Run

    The Great Las Vegas Santa Run… This time not only was the run for a great charity, but they were trying to set the world record for the most runners in Santa suits. Kris talked me into doing it and honestly it was amazing fun. They furnished the Santa suits, which I wore the jacket and hat. Kris did the same. Over 10,000 Santa runners. At one point after the start they stretched for far over a half mile down the middle of Las Vegas Blvd. I am pretty sure they sat the record. So even though I got in late last night from the flight from Oregon and didn’t…
