Well, I’ve been posting lame since Thursday and I’m sorry about that, but the trend continues. Today is a new feature called Muddled Monday. It’s a little like Scattered Saturday.
Today is the first day of a two week break for me (my employer’s idea, not mine). Steven had to work at 8:30, so we were up betimes (doesn’t that sound fancier than “early”?). After I let him out of the driveway I ran to the store for a couple of things we needed. As I drove home, I decided to go for a run.
It was a really good run. I wanted to write a blog post about it. Unfortunately, I was meeting my friend, Sherry, to do some fundraising stuff for the Sitrin Run/Walk to benefit veteran rehabilitation programs. We’re on Team Uncle Leo.
What a day! We went all over the place, stopping at many local businesses. The highlight was The Locavore in Frankfort, NY, a place I had never been. I got a sample of hot garlic-horseradish pickles. Yum! I bought some. I mean to do a whole post on The Locavore. Perhaps I’ll go shop there again first. You know, to really get a feel for the place. And maybe to buy more pickles.
I must say, this charity work is not easy, even when you do cravenly let your friend do most of the talking, which I’m afraid I did. After all our running around I’m tired. Or maybe because of the running around I did before we left (up to Herkimer College once again; it’s quite a hill).
I’ll write more about the Sitrin Run/Walk soon, and about the fundraising efforts of Team Uncle Leo. But right now I have to drink some more Gator Ade in preparation for the Boilermaker 15K. It’s in less than two weeks!
