A few things


Mid summer, and we have enjoyed 3 straight days of slightly cooler weather in which to RUN!

In July, any day that is does not make 90 is just AWESOME.

But, more seasonable weather is on the way, or so the darn weather runner guy says.



Monday night, after a fast run with Bobby's Bunch, a few of us who have been hanging around RunnersWorld for a few years had the pleasure of eating dinner with a couple who were once the body and soul of our group.
Mike and Diana Snyder used to be regulars in our Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday routine.A couple years back, Mike joined the army at the age of 41. He thoroughly schooled all the 18 and 19 year olds in boot camp, and now does all kinds of top secret stuff that he says he would have to kill me if he told me what it was. Mike and Diana moved away to North Carolina, and now are in the process of moving to St Petersburg, Florida, and will have a spare bedroom in their house near the beach!! But DARN...we miss them!! The Snyders were back in town for the 4th to visit grand-babies and such, and we were thrilled to have dinner with them!! Yes, I said grand-babies, and yes, Diana and Mike have a baby on the way!! Rebecca Michelle is due in September.Mike displays one of his acquired skills from Special Forces...baby tossing.

This Saturday, TATUR is doing another Poker Run. You all are running anyway, right? And everyone enjoys a good card game. How about one where darn near every hand wins something. Of course, best hand gets the best prize, second best gets second pick of the prizes, and so on. Once, I got a nice tech shirt with a lowly pair of 5s! Last year, I walked away with some lemon lime GU for a hand that was one card short of a straight with a jack high. (T Z <~~~bad poker player!)



Here's the deal (A pun, maybe?) A $5.00 ante gets you a card. Run a mile, get another card. Run another, get another. After 5 miles, you will have 6 cards, and you will get a 7th when you finish. Best 5 cards make your final hand. Turn them in, and after all the players are through, the prizes will start flowing.

Now, one very important thing. This is an honorable game, and the game is Poker, and not GO FISH. Anyone caught exchanging cards will have to clip Brian's toe nails.
