Run! Run like the wind!

Or walk like a gentle breeze, if you prefer.

I have been remiss in my responsibilities. Derelict in my duties. Mea culpa, mea culpa.
This weekend has crept up on me quicker than I thought.
But . . . uh . . . I'm gettin' old.
I forget things.
Yeah, that's it.

So, runners & walkers, MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
This Saturday is the 21st annual St. Mary's Home for Disabled Children 5k Run and 1 mile Fun Run/Walk.
Click here for more information.
And if you look very carefully, you will see me in one of those videos that are embedded on that page.
If you don't see me because you don't know what I look like, good.
Not lookin' my best, that's for sure.

But really, you'll find no better cause than our kids and no nicer location for the run.
Fort Story is beautiful this time of year. And, after the race,
you can go up the old Cape Henry Lighthouse if you want an outstanding view of the city.

You can visit the First Landing Cross right across the street for a wee history lesson.

You can go to the beach for some peace & quiet.
Which, by the way, will be practically deserted on account of it is on a very small Army base and it's autumn.

What more could you ask for, right?
What's that? You thought of something? Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot (again).
There will be BEER!

I know this post is woefully late, but you can still register on the day of the race.
So, c'mon down for the fun.
You'll feel good about yourself.

Hey, funny water girl - I saw you on the St. Mary's video, and you look just fine and dandy to me!! Good for you.

I think I would have worn a little less clothing, though...I hope you had a change of clothes!
