So, I thought it would be fun to ghost run an HTCer. I agreed to run all three legs. Why, I don't know but I was nervous. I haven't run more than 3x a week since surgery. What was I thinking??? Anyway, race day arrived. The first ghost leg... Read more

OMG, the Vatican museum has so much "stuff" in it there is no way it can be seen in one trip! However, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are stand out high lights. I always thought that Michelangelo had painted the ceiling of the Cha... Read more

pompeii was very amazing. We spent about 5 hours and could have spent 5 weeks and not seen everything! I could almost imagine what it would have looked like 2000 years ago. Sad but not too bad. Only about 10% of the population died, the res... Read more

So, after a 5K at the end of October, I figured why not run a half marathon? After all, it is only 13.1 miles. I forgot about injuries and the fact that my foot had hurt since May! What was I thinking???? Race day: got in the long line for... Read more
First long distance run/walk
