Fun Night Out!

We were able to take a break between our running to enjoy a fun night out that involved no physical activity other than lifting an arm for painting and taking a sip of wine.  I wonder if our painting styles are also reflective of the way we run- free flowing, stiff and blotchy, scattered and haphazard, or very symmetrical?  Whatever our painting or running styles are, in the end it all comes together.  I am so thankful for summer and nights out like these to recharge me for the rest of the school year.

Filtered Water!!

As it has already started to heat up, Michelle and I have been trying to convince our friends to carry water on the runs (not that I haven't been trying for years).  Perhaps the new filtered water fountain at Central Park for water BOTTLES will help convince  them.  Undeterred, Bonnie decided to drink straight from the spout.  She promised that she did not touch the spout.   It even has a separate fountain at the bottom ( not shown) for our 4 legged friends.  The fountain to the left of Bonnie is for people without water bottles and it is unfiltered. Check out the groundskeeper checking her out!

Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon

 I'm so glad that more of our friends joined us for this fun wine country race.  We're even getting better at the post race celebrations and figured out it is much better to bring food to the wine tasting. Three of us ran relays, while our newest runner ran the whole thing.  Awesome job Michelle!
