Thank You...

I'm sure most of you have seen this picture of Baylee before, but I thought it was quite appropriate for this post today.

4th of July 5k

Yesterday I ran a 4th of July 5k race. The only thing patriotic about it was that it was on the 4th and the Star Spangled Banner was sung.

Anchorage Marathon Race Recap

 Last Saturday a friend and I ran the Anchorage Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska. We woke up the morning of the race and of course it was daylight out. It was actually daylight everyday from 5am until about 2am. This race was fairly small, less than 700 runners. We drove to a parking lot to ride the bus to the start. There was no problem parking or getting on the bus as one came by every 15 minutes. When we arrived at the start there was barely any lines for the porta potty. That's one indication you know it's a small race. 

Soon it was time

My Alaskan Journey started in Boston....

So as you are reading this I am currently making my way to Anchorage Alaska. But my journey to get here started a few days ago. 

First I flew up to Boston to meet my friend for the day before flying to Seattle (well that was the plan anyways).

Chatting over Coffee

Happy June! I realize I missed the official Coffee Talk Link up withe Deborah and Coco but I'm feeling quite chatty so I thought  I would share some thoughts anyway.    If we were having Coffee here are the 5 things I would mention.

Join our Summer Challenge!

A very long time ago I found a $10 bill while out on a run.  It was laying on the sidewalk of a route I had never run before. To be honest, I was a little hesitant to pick it up and when I did I felt a little guilty that I took something that did not belong to me.  Had it been in front of  someone's house or driveway I would have taken it to that person's house.  Since this was just randomly laying on the sidewalk, chances are it could have belonged to anyone, and anyone was just as likely to pick it up, so why shouldn't I treat myself for a run that I didn't really feel like doing in the first place, right? Makes sense!

Since then,
