Sunday Funday

Joined in on David's 6-hour Back Cove Fun Run this morning around Back Cove. This fatass style run is a fundraiser for Preble Street - everyone brings food for the food pantry - and does as many loops as they want around the 3.5 mile loop. I knew I wasn't going to be up for much, but wanted to be able to participate and support David in this event. A good group of Trail Monsters and others gathered early on a cold, windy November morning, dropping off food and chatting until the crowd headed off a little after 8:00 am.

I waited for Amy to arrive and then we took off, chatting away as we ran. We got in two solid loops for a total of 7.1 miles and called it good. I was happy with that, and happier that my right hip/butt felt better than Friday. A Dr. Jamie visit plus a lot of home stretching and rolling certainly helped.

After chatting for a bit with friends, I headed home to hang up the gorgeous wreath that Amy made us. Isn't it beautiful?! I love it. Thank you, Amy.

Winterberry and turkey feathers

Later in the afternoon, Ryan, Sam and I headed over to the Cathance for a nice two mile hike along the river. Hiking with Sam takes a while, but it is fun to explore the woods with her and always good to get outside together.

Very colorful today
