party on the lawn


it was a long day... =) but fun

started out with a 5k on the SMU campus this morning - and ran a new personal record time of 29:23! After the race, Jim and I both won prizes in the Theta Raffle - me a 25.00 gift certificate for food, and jim a 25.00 gift certificate for merchandise at a local school spirit store!

The SMU homecoming game against Tulane started at 2pm... and we stayed and watched a little while before heading up north to Celina... to the Celina balloon fest!

Unfortunately, high winds kept the balloons from coming out for a lift or even a glow. But the festival was cool, with a couple live bands and festive atmosphere. And again, it's been a long day!

I don't like daylight savings time, but i'll take that extra hour of sleep tonight!

the extra hour is always nice! i sure wish the balloon festival wasn't cancelled, I wanted to see the pics. Congrats on your run!

I sent Val the text last night about the eq, we was texting at the time anyway, & she said she felt it... she was at her computer & the chair & desk started shaking all of a sudden! =0 I didn't feel it, tho... how's it possible to feel it this far away from the epicenter?! YiKeS
I sure hope these eqs don't trigger the New Madrid eq line

That party scene sure looks clean. Proud of you and Jim and your running times and raffle wins! I like daylight savings time myself.
