      Nicely done Ruth. You sure do seem to be a Relay-er. Do you ladies have a team name? Just wondering...do people reference either G-d or Jesus? Do you know what I mean? There were a lot of religiously affiliated teams of runners on my relay (the Faster Pastors for example) and I wonder if that's just a USA thing or if the same is true elsewhere. Anyway, great job on your run Ruth!

      As far as team names go, I like that! I've also thought of "The Jaunting Jews" or "Jogging Jews" or maybe even "the ORIGINAL endurance athletes - as a reference to the journey from Egypt to Israel, but that seems to esoteric for the Midwest.

      I like the original endurance athletes! Others might not get it, but inside jokes are also good :)

    This run was perfect.

    Back to class, after a 3-week break.

    So short it doesn't seem worth going out, but it's my last pre-race run. And I missed Friday.
