  2. you can be proud of so much; but add running/exercise to the pile
    keep that going.

  3. Very woofy new blog pic Derek! I am adding your new link to my blog after I had the unfortunate incident of seeing a lot of T and A from your former blog address. (LOL) I love your beard. I am growing a 6 day old one now. Let’s see if I can keep it without messing it up. 😉

  4. That looks like a really great place.
    No wonder you feel inspired to run.

    Congrats and keep at it.

  5. Great pics. Your run is a lot more scenic than mine. I just have a grassy knoll
