Morning Treat

Wish I had a photo but it was not to be. This morning when our dog and I were out for our walk, two deer suddenly rushed out from near us and ran across the field and then stopped to look back. I saw that the buck had the largest set of antlers that I have ever seen in our area. It was a beautiful six-point set. I had a good look with my binoculars but could not get the photo. Maybe later?

Another Half Marathon

My chip time for the half marathon race was a bit faster as in 2:27:22. I was pleased that it was 7 minutes faster than last year and that I felt good for the whole race for a difference. Thanks to my running friend Moira for all the long run practices and for being with me for the race today! Thanks to Coach Ron and the Road Rebel group for the faster week day runs and coaching.

I was 1742 out of 1942 who finished the race; 794 out of 831 men who finished; 11/15 men in the 65 - 69 age group.
