Today’s Memory

A quick run this morning at 5am to get the blood flowing through the legs.  Ashley wants me to do a long run with her on Saturday as she trains for her first full marathon.   I accept her challenge as I can’t let her get too far ahead of me!!  I couldn’t get the Thrift Shop song by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis out of my head as I was pounding the pavement so…. I ran to the thrift shop down the road…and I looked incredible!!


On my February 26th Retirement blog I challenged all of you to complete the following sentence:

Old running shoes never die, they just……..

And you all brought the jokes!!!  I couldn’t choose between two of the entries so I will donate $20 to the Alzheimer’s Association in the name of each of the co-winners:

  1. Bob Isenbek – Old running shoes never die, they just……..lose their soles
  2. Phyllis Waite – Old running shoes never die, they just……..take a hike

I’m also going to donate an additional $60 for the other six entries for a total of $100.  Thanks for playing…I enjoyed your creativity!!

Make it a memorable day!
