Here are the photos I took while walking to the Post Office. I found an adorable set of statues in a park of two grandparents welcoming their grandkids into their open arms. It was heart-warming, although the old people's faces were a bit creepy.

In other news... I haven't run yet. I have been dying to run this week but I'm giving myself one more week of 'no-running' for my knee to (hopefully) completely heal before I lace up my shoes. It's killing me. But with age has come knowledge (and patience). I've been here before and then I push myself and I'm back to square one. Not this time! So, in the meantime, I'm thinking about running, which is just as good for me, right?
(I always loved this Nike ad. It makes me feel good about my not-so-pencil-thin thighs)
What have YOU learned about yourself as you've gotten older? I've realized that it is not good to push through knee/foot/ankle-type pain. Lung-burning, quad-screaming, puking-up-lunch pain? Absolutely. RUN ON! (I have also learned that I cannot be trusted with a 4-pack of Cadbury eggs.)
If you could pick one type of vacation, would you chose mountains or beach? I think most people would chose 'beach' but I don't love to swim in the ocean or do ocean sports (all I do is lay on the beach and drink fruity drinks) and getting sand everywhere bothers me. I'd pick a mountain vacation... but only in summer (I've had ENOUGH snow for a very long time).... so I could trail run, and mountain bike, and hike to my heart's content.
Non-Garmin stats: 60 minutes of 'living room yoga.' Don't let the 'living room' part fool you, it is hard! I sweat. My legs burn. And my abs are on fire! Honestly, I think I've gotten more trim in my two week running hiatus by doing yoga!
