Enough about the weather...
Pitter Potter hydroponic planter, Shark Attack pops (like Otter Pops, but with alcohol for adults), a pair of Mizunos, and won two entries to be a guest of Sam The Cooking Guy at a local fundraising event/competition called "Chef Showdown."

|My date - Hubs, of course!|
I went ahead and joined the track club's Whatever fall program. I wasn't able to join the summer program because I worked most weekends. I did attend twice with Hubs, who did join for the summer, but it wasn't enough to fit in any actual training or decent runs. My Fall Saturday work schedule is somewhat spread out due to the doctor's schedule, which gives me more opportunities to run with my track club friends on Saturday mornings. With me joining up with the track club for fall means that I'm officially off of my running hiatus. I'll be back to half marathon training soon. I haven't decided if I'm going to run the in Carlsbad half marathon in January 2013 yet, especially since I'm just getting back to adding miles. I don't even know if Carlsbad is sold out yet. My next half marathon is the San Diego Half Marathon in March 2013. The fall runing program will get me back on track. I must add that the long sleeved tech t-shirt is very nice, and I especially like that it says "Run For Darrel" on it. This fall session is dedicated to Darrel, a long time track club member who was very ill with cancer. Darrel was still with us when the shirts were ordered, but, saldly, by the time the shirts arrived he had succumbed to the cancer. I feel very priviliged to have known Darrel, and I really like wearing the shirt in his honor.

Finally, Hubs had complained that we took no vacation time to do anything this summer. I took a look at the Humphrey's Concert by the Bay line up and Alanis Morrisette was added. We booked the dinner, room, concert package. We ended up with one of the rooms just adjacent to the stage and IMMEADIATLY called friends to hang out in our room to catch the show.
|"Souleye" opened for Alanis Morrisette. Not a bad view from the room, right?|
|I have to laugh because there are signs saying "no recording devices allowed," but security didn't enfore it.|
