Janice {Run Far} said...

YAY! High Five to you for creating this fun post for us all to read on Friday. Good luck to all who are racing... good luck to you on your
15k..... My ipod died this morning... cant get it to turn on or to charge... ugh... 2 days before the marathon... annoying. I think I will run to wally world and pick up a new shuffle. I love the shuffle cause I don't care to have an arm strap which you need with the bigger ipods.

Unknown said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes here and on my blog! You are so thoughtful!! I don't know how you keep track of it all.

Hope your Friday gets happier, and enjoy every minute of your self-race!
