Today is the day!  In just a few hours we depart for Greece, and I couldn’t be more excited.  🙂  Last night I got my last good run in with Vero, as I’m not certain I will do any running while on my trip.  We joined a group that meets every Monday evening at 6 for five miles….and they kicked my butt.  It’s not that I can’t do the distance, it was the speed at which they did it.  Vero can join almost anyone’s pace and be ok, but I have to work up to it.  I am glad to report though that I finished without losing our small group and at a speed that I haven’t attempted in probably over a year.  Yay me!!

I don’t know about the rest of the world, but it feels like fall here in our little corner of the south.  There is something romantic about cool air, especially in the evenings.  It feels like festival season.  Everyone has a little extra bounce to their step and a smile on their face. I can tell that my cat likes it as well, she’s been getting up extra early to attack my bedroom rug every morning.  She’ll start at one end of the room, get a running start, pounce on the rug, then slide on it until it’s all bundled up in a corner.  🙂  She also loves my transparent curtain where my clothes are.  She’ll hide behind it like I can’t see her, then attack my feet as I walk by.  Sometimes I actually don’t see her and she scares the living crap out of me.  Ha!  She is my little friend.

Next time you hear from me, I will be in a far away land.  Hold the fort down until I return!

Post run wine with Vero!
