Fair Weather Runner said...

that is an awesome playlist, thanks for sharing. same for the pictures. i NEED to do that race, it's a matter of NEEd not want!

Irene said...

My finish line pics aren't that great, so I really love that one! I'm recovering OK...

I love THAT particular skirt, even though I have a few from the same company. Thanks so much for your support and the text message that morning!

Thanks! It was really great meeting you and it definitely adds to the whole marathon experience.

There's a whole bunch of songs I would have never thought to use, and some I did like better than others, but it was really fun to run to music others picked out for me.

Try on a bunch of running skirt brands just so you know how they feel on. Some fit better than others.

I just used the shuffle. Those have come way down in price, too.

Thanks. I really like the running skirts a lot!

Thanks. The play list was a fun thing to do.

Thanks mostly to my friend Richard!


Looking forward to seeing you next year!

Fair Weather Runner,
We really got lucky this year because it wasn't hot. One year we had record heat. Yes, do SDRNRM at least once!
