Catching up again

It seems like most of my posts this year involve catching up and falling behind.  Every year, I tell myself that I am going to say "no" more often, yet, somehow, I take on more duties.  Maybe, next year, I'll say "no" more often, now that I'm yet another year wiser.

So, here it goes.  On June 21, 2014, I ran the Carrabbas Half Marathon Relay.  As always, it was hot and humid.  Guess who didn't say no to filling in for the announcer/MC, who canceled? 

I took a break from announcing to run the 3rd leg and take some ugly race pics.


Afterward, I switched to ugly race announcer pics.  Don't worry, I won't change the blog name (since I will be saying "no," right?).

Yep, not a good look.

The following weekend, I ran the Midsummer Night's Dream Women's 5k.  It was a night run on the Brackenridge Golf Course.  

Luckily, it was dark, so there were no ugly running pics.  But I made up for that the next day at the SARR Annual picnic and fun run.

and pimping marketing the Women's 5k - without putting down my dos equis.

And the SARR Scholarship committee (again, not saying "no") - we awarded 8 x $1,000 scholarships at the picnic.

So, that brings us to today - my favorite day of the year - my birthday!  Luckily, SARR produced a race in my honor - but they called it the Freedom 4 miler a/k/a Sally's birthday run.  I may have added that last part.
I was in fine crazy running chicken form.

Birthday Bok Bok.

And re-hydrating after the race (yep, it was hot and humid - it IS San Antonio).

And I'm all caught up - for now.  Next up, SARR Monthly Fun Run tomorrow, Free-da's 5k on Sunday, and the final day of my 120-work detail on Monday (which I have been looking forward to for about 119 days).  And the Women's 5k is only two weeks away - eek!

Thanks to Ceci, Victor, Gerry, Celia, LauraC, Tom Lake, SARR, ScottyDog, Lana, and Tony for the pics.
