Lull before the storm

Rodney the Reindeer (small)

and a medium Rodney for your viewing pleasure.

Please bear with me, or is it 'put up with me deer' as I continue to play with my camera. This blog might be mainly running but it's fun to make it more interesting with a few well placed pictures.

An unusual east (snow) wind was blowing during today's easy 5 miler. We don't ofter get a breeze from that direction and will typically see a good dumping of snow within 24 hours. We'll just have to wait and see if my prediction will bear out and you can be sure that I will provide the evidence. The run was another nondescript journey around town on a somewhat bleak gray day as I cruised along at an easy pace sometimes dipping a bit faster than Coach A would have liked. With a few stops for photo opportunities the average pace came in at 8:13 and hr of 129 and it was over and done with in no time and Coach J was happy to have me home.

I'm now eager to tackle tomorrow's 9 miler which must be a good sign. Good running all!

Coach J is the one you have to come home to, and therefore the most important to please.

Could you imagine having to come home to Coach A? Merely typing this thought sends shivers down me spine.

Throw a the gas up in the ol' fireplace and enjoy the storm.

I'm gonna call coach J and have her run over that damn camera with the van.

Rodney looks like a barefoot runner. What kind of pace does it\he\she run?

The camera is a great addition to the blog! Looking forward to some great shots to go along with your stories.
