Labor Day Weekend


Well I didn’t get any labor done this weekend. The yard needs mowed, the bills need paid, and a few other things need attending but we took it easy. We spent a lot of time at Nana’s house with relatives both in town and out of town. We all got a little sunburned but we had a good time. It’s great to reconnect with people and see what is happening with them. Plus I get to take lots of photos and use my bag of special effects on them if they irritate me.


Me and the kid went on a little hike in the north Woods section of Oxley Nature Center. A beautiful area and I have only seen two other people on those trails in all the years I’ve been hiking them.


The view from the back of the pack

Monday morning I ran a fairly small 5K put on a by a local church, the Run to the Son 5K. A great event that I loved more because I finished 3rd in my age group and got a medal (out of six if you must know).


It was a Baptist Church that put it on and I violated my oath to never run in anything but beer runs. I’ve amended the rule to include great pancakes instead of beer. Flexibility is my middle name.

    It’s definitely best if you’re flexible, Yogi. You must not have stopped to take many photos in this race. I’m impressed. Looks like a busy but fun weekend. The bills and yard can wait until next weekend.

    Glad you had a good holiday, Yogi! It’s wonderful you race as much as possible. Our niece that just visited us has run the NYC marathon and the Brooklyn half marathon the past year.
