Bandit I am not

The fact that I even asked the question already answers it for me...I am not a Bandit!! Wow all I have to do to spark a few comments is write about a controversial running topic and BAM comments from near and far.. Thanks to everyone for the input and heartfelt examples. I emailed the Race Director before my post and I am flexing my creative muscle to find a way to make the race work. Details soon...

Running has changed my life for the better in so many ways. In order to feel good at the end of the day and set a positive example for the Little Studs I will FOLLOW the RULES :) That is not to say that I wont cheer loud and possibly hop in for a tiny tiny spell in a race... But full out Bandit, that is not my style..
Tomorrow Tall Mom is the host for Take it and Run Thursday at Runner's Lounge. Please participate!! I think the question is pretty fun. The theme is set around a post I wrote a couple months back HERE..
This week FALL has hit me hard...the rain has truly messed with my training schedule. I am trying to see the SUN and be positive...I took the photo above at the Pumpkin patch on an AMAZING fall day. Here is wishing you a wonderful night and cool crisp days with no RAIN...or snow for some of you.. to enjoy the FALL running season..

Hi Mel, Thanks SOO much for leaving your comment on my new running blog- you were the first and in fact, still are!!
I hope we'll continue the friendship! Enjoy TiaRT- I'll see if I remember to pop over when you've posted- we're a bit in front of you timewise, here in Oz, so your post probably isnt up yet!
Off to take a look now :o)

Don't let the rain ruin your run! I ran 5.25 in the rain on Tuesday and LOVED it.

Shelley said...

I second Shannon's comment on the rainy running. It's great once you get started!

Can't wait to hear what you have up your sleeve. ;)

Fall is hitting me hard too. Not much motivation this week and the around-freezing temps and early darkness are not helping!

Off to check out TiaRT!
