Good Friday Morning! Mine is going well. It's been sunny here, sunny enough to run in just a sports-bra and get some vitamin D. Scout has been benched from runs because a piece of her rough pad on her paw is missing...maybe from glass or salt on the streets. But I just threw the tennis ball for a while and now she is relaxing next to me.
Highlights of the Week
First, and foremost, Justin and I went to a Chuck Berry concert. Chuck Berry is from St Louis and although he is 87, he still plays a concert once a month at a venue around the corner from the house called Blueberry Hill. He has played over 100 times there and still puts on an awesome show. The crowd was excited, especially the people standing next to us who had flown in from Georgia for the night to see the show. Chuck Berry came out at 10pm sharp (he won't come on stage before 10) with his son, an electric piano, base guitarist, and a drummer carrying a backpack stuffed with drum sticks. Chuck wore a sailors cap, a sequined blue shirt, and had a red electric guitar.

I know, the pictures are blurry but I didn't want the flash to go off during the concert. He played a surprising number of songs that I new, but never knew who played them. And he danced, told jokes, and came in just a half a beat late or sometimes just went "hmmmmmlaladola..." when he forgot a verse to his song. It was a fun, St Louis night, with a dress, boots, and good-lookin' date!
Other highlights include long and more regimented runs (the marathon is in 8 weeks), warm weather, letters in my P.O. Box, good books, planning a spring break trip to the Smokey Mountains, studying at the coffee shops, phone calls to and from friends, working at the Emergency Room with nurses who don't mind teaching you how to give shots and administer medications, feeling good with Justin, and looking forward to spending the weekend out at his Dads place in the Ozarks.
