Quiet Sunrise

I was sitting here watching the sunrise unfold and preparing to take a little walk with my husband, when I remembered it is the start of Badwater today. Our son is once again out there proving he can push the endurance limit. He hopes to finish in under 30 hours. Meanwhile, we walked all of 30 minutes and came in sweaty and bitchy. Humpf.
Son called a few minutes ago and said he will start in a few hours. He explained that the Elite runners start later when the sun gets meaner. He's awfully tough.

You know...Darling would love your tag line there in your heading. She's a HUGE Beatles fan!

I was, and always will be, a huge Beatles fan too. Tell Darling I will share :)
With Mama Mia coming out soon I've started singing along with Abba these days.

That's an impressive marathon to run. I drive through Lone Pine and Death Valley all the time, so I'm familiar with the area. I'd be happy if I could just have feeling in my feet most days. It's taken me several months to increase my endurance from running for one minute without stopping to running for two minutes without stopping. It pays to take care of your body when you are young, so that it doesn't fail you when you are old.
