Heron






































This Millers Cove heron was enjoying the warmer temperatures Sunday afternoon.

I'm still in shock, pleasantly so,  that we've had three consecutive days of above-60-degree temperatures.

Baby Sis and I (foolishly) signed up for a half marathon in Virginia Beach a week from Saturday.  Given all the snow and nasty weather we've had, neither of us has done any noteworthy running since our Valentine's Day 10K at the New Kent winery.

I hope to take advantage of this week's warmer temperatures to get in a few sorry miles, but there's no way we're going to be ready for 13.1 in a week.  Of course we'll attempt it, ready or not, but we are fully prepared to watch in aggravation as the senior citizens zoom past us.

Doggone it.

LLC - Amazing! Very inspirational--unless they show up a week from Saturday in Virginia Beach, and then it's going to get ugly.

I have a feeling it's going to be ugly anyway, based on our lack of training, but that's always the case with these spring races. It's so hard to get motivated to move during the winter months.

I am Senior Citizen but will not be zooming. We have construction underway (four-season room added).
