Cold weather is a coming!

Daylight saving time is here. The leaves are gone. The temperature is 54 degrees. This could be the last run above 50 until Disney! The forecast doesn't look good.

He's back!

 No! Not this guy! Were talking I T band. My old nemesis! I hate that guy. It started in the marathon and has been kind of hanging on ever since. I have had issues on and off for the last five years or so. So it's time to get out the IT band strap. I hate that thing! The Ice and beef up on the stretching. Grrrrr
 Run Happy, or at least try too!

Running in God's Country!

Fall colors are in full bloom right now. Tonight on my run I had to stop and just look around at all of the beautiful fall colors. I love love love fall! Tonight it was about 55 degrees and almost no wind. It just doesn't get any better than that. But we all know what comes after fall. I'm not a winter lover but I can't imagine Christmas without snow. I don't think I could ever do without the four seasons. Planning a long run for tomorrow to just take it all in.

Run Happy!

Faces in the crowd. Twin Cities Marathon 2014

From the Twin Cities in motion website:

We selected Ramona this year as one of our Faces in the Crowd. As a child, she underwent pioneering heart surgery. If she didn't have the surgery, she was told she would die. Doctors told her that if she did, she might live until she was 21 years old. Ramona recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of her heart surgery with her doctor and just became a seven-time marathon finisher today at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon finish line. Congrats, Ramona! We're so happy to celebrate with you!

It was the Zombie chase!

Last week we were out visiting my daughter in Rexburg, Idaho. She suggested we do a run called the Zombie Run. My daughter attends BYU-Idaho. So long story short it was my wife and I and 398 college students that did the run.

The gun show!

 You wore a belt with flags and the zombies would chase after you and try and take your flags. Yes, they got mine. (Zombies were all young fast college students). There were obstacles to run over and was a pretty fun 5k.

Ready to go!

I'm a creeper!

My daughter running for her life!
