      I can't NOT comment about this. Because, bananas. It's always a treat when Vern makes a banana run because it's fodder for a bad joke. But now I don't have one... Hang tight. I will come up with something.

      Madison, I can cycle year-around here, but actually do less in the colder weather. It all depends on the day-- if it had been windy at this day's temperature, it would have been outside my comfort zone.

      LOL. I know what you mean. We ran back and forth in a tiny parking lot over the weekend to get in the extra .06 we "missed" on the route. Ridiculous! Good for you for resisting the OCD urge!

      Today my Garmin's battery died 3.46 miles into a 3.5 mile run. Heartbreaking. :)

      Can't say that I've ever seen anyone running around here carrying a bunch of bananas.
