PM - 6 miles around the community center.  After pouring all day there was no rain for most of this run!  A festivus miracle.  First Lisa bailed then Jordanne bailed then I peer-pressured Lisa into coming after all, fail on Jordanne.  Go wish Lisa a Happy Birthday!

Way to get others out the door!

I love your dog picture!

I see you're in Federal Way. We may have run by each other on the BPA, or on Military Road sometime. I work at Weyerhaeuser.

Did you say festivus!? We had a real festivus celebration on new years eve this year. After feasting on Crab Bisque, mulligatawney, rye, and chocolate bobka, we watched the strike and the invitations, then had our own airing of grievances and feats of strength. No lie, I have a very weird family :)

What grievances did you air and what feats of strength did you perform?
