Good bye my sweet Summer!!!

 So we must face facts, Summer is gone and Fall is now here (as of 10:50pm). Yes, I love Summer, the long days, warm nights, easy livin', profuse sweating, catfish are jumpin', yada yada yada....

I remember during the last mile of the race Saturday I felt fatigue there so I think that's a good sign! Thanks for your kind, encouraging words about my race. I am somewhat discouraged about my times but I've not lost heart. I will continue the course!
  Today, 3.6 miles/34:29/9:34's Peace!
