Leaving for the weekend... again!

Tomorrow I leave town for a long weekend with the family. Me, my two sisters, and my parents will be spending the weekend at Itasca State Park. With that note, you will not see or hear from me in blogland until late Sunday.... I hope to get some great pictures this weekend!

On a side note, I checked me mail today and was pleasantly surprised at what I found. I received my gift from placing 9th in Viv's Weight Loss Challenge. What was my wonderful gift, might you ask? These beauties.....

I can't thank Viv enough for putting on such a wonderful challenge and Running Knitter for the wonderful socks! I am going to brag about them forever! They are so comfy and I absolutely LOVE the color! Thanks again!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you on the flip side!

OCN - 19.5 miles, 1:36, avg speed = 11.8mph
Wednesday:

Have fun on the trip. I have been to Itasca, but it was so long ago and I was quite young so don't really remember!!

On the running group, you said that you would be too slow for it. It's the great thing about this group (well, it's really a training program technically, but some just do it to have a group to run with). There are 4 levels, and within each level, depending on your marathon goals, and each group has sub-groups in it...there are more than enough people that any level would have someone to run with.
