My cool new running socks!

Ran three miles yesterday in Orlando in the rain (photo above). It was a nice relaxing run with a light drizzle. Later Skender and I got caught in pouring rain walking from the breakfast restaurant back to our hotel.  We were very sad to end our vacation but happy to arrive home. Skender told me this morning that he had tears on his pillow when he woke up because he missed the cruise ship so much. If he had things his way we'd forget about school and work and just travel around on different cruise ships! 

I ran four miles today at the gym. I decided it is still too icy and wet for me to run outside, maybe tomorrow. I am now at 307 miles. I find that starting a new 100 miles is the most difficult period to keep motivated to run. It feels like starting all over again however, once I get a few miles behind me I feel much better. Wore my new Just Tri-it red and yellow triathlon socks today (picture above). Pretty cool huh??? They were great to run in and I took the opportunity to show them off to Cathy and Daryl Moat who were at the gym...I think I heard them laugh as I walked away :) ??? Truthfully, I looked like some kind of goofy running geek, but despite this, I loved the socks. 

Added a few new pictures from our trip. Skender dressed up like a cowboy and had his picture taken. Pretty mean looking guy huh? Actually he looks exactly like my second brother Grant when he was that age. It is so funny how much they are alike. The other photos are of our mini jeep and snorkeling trip. No pictures of us snorkeling but a few others from the rest of the trip.  
For those people following my blog, please join us for celebration drinks for the first 300 miles! We plan to go to Amigos around 5;30 this Friday for nachos and beer.
