7 EZ with Carolyn, Wendy and Karen.  AP: 9:35.  It was cold when we started and perfect by the time the sun came over the mountains.  Faith Hope & Charity were soaring high over a crisp blue sky!

Nice!!!!

I still need to run today. Rylee is at Beehive Camp, so it looks like it will all be on the treadmill. I am dragging my feet. Dang!

Sounds like your run was absolutely perfect! :) :) :)

From Kathie on Tue, Aug 10, 2010 at 10:43:49 from 63.248.105.188

Nice run! Who or what are faith, hope, and charity? Should I know this?

From Smooth on Tue, Aug 10, 2010 at 11:26:38 from 174.23.203.161

SSF ~ I didn't realize Rylee is at Camp. Too bad you had to run on the TM. It is so much cooler today and just beautiful outside.

When is Rylee coming home?

Kathie ~ Faith Hope and Charity were names suggested by RivertonPaul to the three hawks that I've been seeing on my runs. One day they were perched on a fence post instead of the telephone pole or trees. One of them stayed on the fence post when I ran by and I could see him at eye level. It was so cool! I watch for them everyday when I run by that field. Paul suggested that I should give them names! :)

Sounds like another wonderful run. PCM is going to be here before you know it.

From Nancy on Tue, Aug 10, 2010 at 12:56:37 from 76.27.19.206

I love running in the cool. I wish I would have felt good enough to run today.

From Smooth on Tue, Aug 10, 2010 at 13:06:01 from 174.23.203.161

Rhett ~ I know! Gary and his kids are leaving tomorrow. We had a nice BBQ last night here for the fam. one last time. My kids will be starting school soon and I can't even think about PCM. But did book a room for Pocatello and sending in my GV 50K registration. Doone is so ready for Pocatello.

Nancy ~ This morning was a teaser for what's coming in the Fall...love this kinda weather! You will feel good enough tomorrow!

Hey Smooth, nice job with the cross training. Flex flex! :)

Good to see you had a fun run with great friends and some nice weather. Hope the rest of your week is great.

From RAD on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 13:45:25 from 67.172.229.125

LOVE the hawk's names, RP always comes up with good names (he owns the naming rights for baby Fartlek).

Nice run on a beautiful morning. I love the little bit of crisp in the air, but it reminds me of cold sometimes...and that SCARES me! I don't like cold!

From Tom Slick on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 14:03:09 from 168.179.157.36

that sounds like my kind of run, early, easy and enjoyable...Keep up the great training.
