THIS AND THAT .....

While we await another report from LIA Agent 0090, here are some mundane happenings around the "House" ..

Benji eating a thin apple stick from the end! Sometimes I hear it thwacking on the wire in there when he spins it about!

If you follow RoadBunner (and Mario), you know she ran the LA Marathon this past Sunday - 26.2 miles. If you follow me, you know I am trying to build up some meagre mileage and speed - starting from a horrid 1/2 mile on Feb 1. The watch in the photo below is my time today for 4 miles - a bit of which I had to walk. It averages out to 11 minutes 20 seconds per mile! If you do the arithmetic, RB did the whole damn Marathon with an average of 11 minutes per mile - and walked a bit and took pictures too. I'm depressed....
... so I started reading this relatively new book today. If I could start over I would be Jimmy Buffett.

If you ask the Bunns, they will tell you. The doing is more important the the end result.

I think you're doing awesome!! Trust me, if I lay off from running for even two months, I struggle to run 2 miles at any running speed! And as Hef's Mom has pointed out, I think you have more "wisdom" working for 'ya which means you are doing more awesome than you let on!
