My little girls!

Aren't they cute? If this picture wasn't already publicly on the race photo site, I wouldn't post it here, but what the heck - it is so public. And they are both pleased about it. I bought them the pink bandannas with skulls on them for the race!

The group picnic was really really nice yesterday. I got to talk to a new lady for a long time which was wonderful. I also got to catch up with some old friends. It is a luxury to have time to just sit and eat and talk.

I am going to the gym this morning and I am going to run 3 miles. (I ran 3 miles in 30:53, my best time ever!!!!) Tonight after work, weather permitting, I am taking a bike ride up Waterton Canyon with my friend the rec therapist. She is a nice person and I really enjoy her company.

Here is something I used to hear and I probably can't recall exactly the way it goes, but something like this: You can't think your way into right living, but you can live your way into right thinking.

"We feel we are on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 75
