Yesterday, on my run, I saw...

  • Josie choosing to run with me instead of Leslie because I'm much slower her favorite.
  • (and smelled) a deer in the ditch that had been decomposing for at least 3 days.
  • Josie almost attack a pack of cats.
  • my elementary school best friend's mom.
  • a pack of dogs almost attack Josie. (Karma?)
  • a long, creepy, brown snake skin right in time to prevent me stepping on it.
  • my little sister a good half-mile (or more) ahead of me at the turnaround.
  • a dead snake in the road.
  • the sun go down.
  • my uncle in his driveway and darted behind some corn so I wouldn't get the no-running-in-the-dark lecture.
  • a beautiful display of heat lightning in the distance.
  • my little sister (finished with her run) driving back out to see if I was okay.
  • the end of the driveway, barely visible in the dark, signifying I was finished!
and I felt...great! I tried this same 8 mile run on Sunday and came back home after 2 miles: hot, tired, and defeated. It's amazing what a difference a day can make.


  1. Awesome! I might try a post like this. Funny stuff. :)

  2. Hey lady, I couldn't find your e-mail so I will just respond to your question here... Pizza on the grill is SUPER easy. You need a round, ventilated pizza pan and a grill, that's all. :) Heat the grill as hot as you can (usually 500 is ideal) with the pan on the grill. When you reach temperature put the pizza on the pan and close the lid. Check after about 4 minutes and it usually needs no more than 6. Always cook meat before putting it on the pizza since cooking time is so brief. Let me know if you have more questions!
