I ran the Chicago marathon twice in the early nineties.  I wouldn't say I was more fit then than now, but I must have had more energy and endurance because I can't imagine running another 26.2.  I run everyday, but the most recently was 7 miles.  I was dreaming just now in DEEP detail that I was running another marathon.  There were fewer people than the 30-50,000 Chicago would have, and I kept needing to find porto potties.  I made 7 miles easily enough but then I woke up.

OK, the hot sauce up there?  I showed you last week a little holder I made for 2 bottles...but we have 4 bottles going at the moment on the table, so i had to make another, a little different this time.....

Below?  Yogi came over to play with penny the beagle then came in...friendly cats are always fascinated by dogs, aren't they?

I don’t usually want to DRIVE 26 miles let alone run it. Good for you for having done that.

I have those frustrating, trying to find a bathroom dreams all the time... then when I find a bathroom it's disgustingly filthy and I can't use it!
