Another beautiful morning---perfect weather!

My Labor Day run yesterday was a good one, but my legs know today that I pushed harder than my normal  runs.  Sore legs today!  I spent much of my run yesterday trying to get away from people around me who were making guttural  noises that were driving me crazy and the more I tried to pull ahead the louder the noises got.  I had taken my iPod to listen to my music and it was dead---so it was up to me to make my own music...I came in second in a time of 29:53---not my fastest but considering the heat of the summer I felt good about it.  The lady in my age group who came in first is a real runner---probably been running her whole life---came in under 24 minutes.  Impressive!

Her I am before the race just leaving the house---a little fresher than in the finish picture.

I love it when students send me progress pictures of their rugs...here is an update of Sherry's rug from Texas.

It is a Bea Brock pattern called First Time Spring.

Well this will be a busy week getting ready for a Hook-in in Warsaw Mo---a first time event that hopefully will turn into an annual event.  It is on Saturday the 10th so if you are in the area be sure to come.  Here is the link to the information.  Check it out!

I will also be getting ready to pack up wool for two camps in Vermont and Ohio.  I will be flying to Vermont for the Fall Foliage workshop in Montpelier then driving to Ohio to teach a workshop at Bass Lake, the flying home from Cleveland.  Lots of logistics to figure out on this one but I am so excited about both workshops.

I am also continue my training to run a 10K on Sept. 18th---this will be my second 10K but it is around the Kansas City Plaza and is supposed to be flat---flat is good---and the scenery should be great.

Yeah!!!   Fall is here!


  1. Congrats on your run! Can't wait to see you in Warsaw!
