Hey pals! I’m glad a lot of you loved my 10 yr running a blog anniversary journey down reminiscence lane/Q&A weblog submit!

Lots has modified since then. 🙂

Anyway – I don’t know if it’s the cooler climate or what, however I’ve been feeling energized over right here! I had one other nice run early on Monday morning – this time with my buddy Sokphal.

Funny story: the above picture was taken by a younger Asian vacationer who spoke little or no English and was extraordinarily confused by what we had been attempting to do. Luckily he ultimately nailed it and all of us had been actually excited. 😉 

Anyway – we began early in hopes of catching an superior dawn, but it surely was largely cloudy… oh effectively! Still lovely.

Do you adorn for Halloween? Matt and I used to earlier than Riese was born – we did slightly “graveyard” with tomb stones, cobwebs on the porch, a creepy trying lit up determine within the window, and so on. – however the previous few years we’ve been slightly lazy. Must get again into the spirit of it!
