Today’s Memory

Well….the Austin Marathon is over….and I finished!!  Yay!!!  I’ve spent the last week recovering physically and mentally but am ready to get back to the running, blogging and Alzheimer’s research fundraising world.  There is so much to do!!

Before I start, please join me in thanking Doreen Christensen for her generous donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.  Your support means the world to me and a ribbon in your honor will be added for my next race in March.

The trip to Austin was just an incredible weekend with so many unexpected twists and turns, achievements, highs and lows.

I was so restless on Friday night.  My mind was in overdrive and I could almost feel it buzzing.  I was up at 6 and out the door at 6:30 for a run.  Just what I needed to calm my nerves and get the blood running.  Then back home for.a quick shower, pack for the weekend, send out a couple of emails for work and out the door for the 3.5 hour drive to Austin.

I’ll share more details later but for now here are a few pictures of all the fun!!

Saturday Night: All the ribbons are in place:
