The winner of the Krill Oil is
Spunky Suzi!!!

Congratulations!  Please send me an email ( with your mailing info so I can give it to my contact.  If I don't hear from you within a week, I'll have to choose another winner.


I wanted to thank you for the wonderful comments on my five year post - you guys are awesome and every time a new comment would come in, my day was made anew.  Honestly, I didn't know where I was going when I started this blog...but I'm really pleased with where it's at right now, and I love the interaction that I get from you, my wonderful readers!


My parents have been in town since last Wednesday (which is why I've not had time to respond to comments, much less comment on most of your blogs - sorry!).  We got to watch our youngest kid walk the stage at graduation, and had a little party afterward The graduate looking toward the future...and tassle-hat man, and cupcakes!  We all got a kick out of that crazy yellow hat - one of the academic advisors or professors, I'm not sure which.  This kid earned two degrees; one in computer science and one in mathematics.  I know not from whence those smarts came from, but they sure weren't from me!
Last year when my mom was visiting, I sent her home with my favorite race t-shirts so that she could magically turn them into a memory quilt for me.  I love how it came out - she picked a bright orange fabric that is printed with Hawaiian flowers, and edged it with blue - I think it tied all the shirt colors together very well.  It's so fun to look at this and remember my earlier races - the pale yellow shirt in the middle of the top row was from my first-ever 5K...ahhh, such good memories:
So cute, right?!  I love it!  
And if you're thinking that I look sick in that picture, it's because I am.  I started getting a cold on Sunday and yesterday woke up with my chest burning and congested.  Went to the doctor and got a diagnosis of sinusitis AND bronchitis.  Yay me?  Anyway, he gave me a steroid shot along with some antibiotics and prescription cough medicine, so hopefully I will be 100% really soon.  Big weekend ahead, lots of fun stuff going on (that I'll blog about soon), and I don't have time to be sick right now!

I don't know how it is where you live, but around here, renewing your driver's license in person is a royal pain.  So I just kept doing it online, even though I didn't resemble my picture after I lost weight.  But this go-round, I got a letter saying that I HAD to go in person to renew.  Two hours later, here's my new license (along with the old one, for comparison):
Yeah, I guess it was time for an update.
I may or may not be running a nighttime trail run 5K tomorrow night - depends on how my chest congestion is doing.  I've never had to miss a race due to illness, but I am quite beat and don't want to overdo it just for a little race.  Playing it by ear at this point.
Have a great weekend!
