    • 1 x 12 x 65 lbs
    • 1 x 10 x 75 lbs
    • 1 x 8 x 85 lbs
    • 1 x 4 x 95 lbs (missed the last two)
    • 1 x 0 x 115 lbs (bar plus 35 lbssers, got talked into that one by the hubby & friend, but it wasn’t meant to happen today)

    Hi Penny

    Congrats on the Columbus Half! PRing is never an easy thing and when you do it by over 10 minutes…. well that is just special. It also sounds like your husband is really supportive and I enjoy that from my wife.

    I hear you on the whole driver thing because most of them are very courteous. Every now and then when I run in Northern Michigan I will get someone who intentionally swerves at me or yells at me and gives me the one finger salute. There is a car about every 5 minutes, yet they will still stay in my lane and often get quite close (there are of course no sidewalks).

    Glad your recovery is going well and thanks for being so nice on my blog.
