Ok, my Brooks wear got here...thanks John!! What great stuff...The Brooks jacket is great...it has everything you could possibly need....the sleeves have an extra piece of material for the finger slots...their is a place for your MP3 player, and extra pocket for your essentials...plus the normal 2 zippered pockets...plenty of air pockets in the jacket...there is nothing that Brooks has forgotten...it is great...I will post a pic soon..my friend Sheri will have to help me...I am not tech savvy....next I will try my 2 shirts..one is short sleeve so I may need to wait a bit..but the other is for night running it is loaded with reflectors and bright colors...review to come....

Can't wait...I got in touch with Brooks, as I use their sneakers faithfully and have all my runners in them..they will be sending me some apparel to try out and blog about...how great is this..I can't wait to receive, try out and then tell you about.....gotta run
It was a windy morning, but the excitement was high...the night before we had our pasta and lots of laughs...my sister and Kelli could take it on the road they are so funny. Our plan was to stick together but there were too many of us at just a little bit time differences...so...Phil and Kim ran and finished in a 2:01 for Kim and a 2:07 for Phil....Kelli wanted anything under a 2:24...she ran a 2:21...Gayle wanted a 2:30...well she got a 2:31...Shannon wanted under a 2:40, we got her in at 2:37...my friend Patti was going to run/walk..so after I got everyone else in...I decided I would wait for her about 500 yards from the finish (I did not go over the finish line as I would not be able to go back)...I figured I would wait until the Garmin stated 3:00...well I had half an hour to wait...so I decide let me just turn around smell the ocean, feel the 25 mpg gust of wind on my face and soak in the sun....well, in that time...Ms Pattie ran past me, without my knowing...so I waited un 3:07 on my Garmin as I was a frozen popsicle...mean while Pattie is up in the room having a nice hot shower...how about that??? Everyone did great/goals were all met and I do believe some decided they have a lot more confidence in their running!! Until next time...I will post some pics soon...

So, the countdown begins, we have put in our miles, not missed a run and the girls are ready for their first 1/2 marathon...we cant wait. The green bandanas and green socks have been bought. Kelli reminded me the other day it was exactly 6 months ago that she could only run 3 minutes walk 2 minutes for 30 minutes and next week we will be running 13.1 miles...what an accomplishment. Just goes to show you, you can do anything you put your mind/heart into. So for anyone who is running, we hope to see you there.....of course at the finish line!!
