Tooting my own horn

Tonight I ran 3 miles. Before this, the farthest I had ever run (or is it ran?) was 2 miles. So I am patting myself on the back :)

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or gazelle - when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Derek- what I meant is that we are friends of you and Sara. I had figured out the connection between you and JM and his dear wifey! Hilary, feel free to comment while you are "lurking"!!

Amanda, I will not be a lurker anymore :) I never know if people will think it's weird to have someone they don't know chime in with comments, but I will be silent no longer! I really enjoy your blog :)
