Thanks again

Really.  Your comments have been so kind.  I really appreciate it.  

The day after I wrote my last post - about how I didn't want to run anymore - I woke up and wanted to get out and run, so I did.  I also got out yesterday morning, on a crystal clear, cold, silent Colorado morning and I ran.  

I think I am dealing with a post-mid-life crisis and the death of someone I really cared about.  I have depressive tendencies anyway, so I know I can really go off the deep end about stuff that others deal with pretty well.  I think the training for the PF Chang's Half in January will help me with this.

I am at the Denver Airport right now, waiting for my flight to Houston.  I am going to spend the weekend with some dear friends in Houston.  It should be good for my soul.  I am bringing my running shoes... but not my Garmin.  I just have so much electronic equipment, you would think I am some kind of high tech genius.  All I am is a woman who likes a lot of gee-whiz gizmos.  I can live without my Garmie for the weekend.

I hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving weekend.  And thanks again.  Really.
