Okay, so those that know me, know I'm not exactly an "outdoorsy" kinda gal. Don't get me wrong, I love the great outdoors and appreciate our Earth, I'm just not all tree- huggeryish (wow, that's an interesting word!). But, low and behold...I was an outdoor worker today, my friends! Yup, me and a rake and a whole crap pile of leaves. I impressed even myself with my gumption to make our yard more spring-like and less like, well, autumn. I know I will pay for my hard work tomorrow, but, secretly, deep down inside, I considered it training for the River Rat 5K! Yup, but shhhhh , don't tell anyone, ' cuz they might laugh, maybe nearly as hard as when they find out I've committed to running a race, but not possibly as hard as actually watching me run said race. Huh, that'll be interesting! Happy Earth Day!!
