Which witch pulled the switch?  Woke up at 4:30 to meet a Very Early client and was greeted by thunder and lightning and wind and pouring rain.  The weather going from beauty to beast in 12 short hours.  The meteorologic curse dampening this morning’s intended 2 X 2 Mile, minor setback in the bigger picture.

We wrapped up our 2012 Wednesday Night Track workouts last night.  I’ll miss our weekly gatherings until we resume next March.  Hope to capture a good temperate evening in the next couple of months and we’ll have a bonus workout.  Huge thanks to Coach John Tully, Kids Fit Program administrator Linda, assistant coach Kelly Crawford, and everyone that made this such a memorable year.

Our group last night epitomizes the essence of Wednesday Nights.  Deb Bahr made it a full 2 miles without having to walk a single step.  Darned proud of you girl.  And at our post workout gathering at Tanner’s we had a surprise visit from the other end of the spectrum.  Peter & Michaela van der Westhuizen joined us for a Big K Burger and a pint of Blue Moon Winter Ale.  Pete and Micky have an incredible opportunity in front of them, will be moving to Big Bear Lake, CA in just a couple of weeks.  Ah to be young and have the world as your oyster.

And speaking of oysters, thanks to everyone that pitched in for the gift certificate to Shucks.  Linda and I happen to be afficanados of the little bi-valves and will slurp to our heart’s content.

We’re bumping 250 entrants to this weekend’s Vala’s Pumpkin Patch Trail of Terrors 5K.  If I was a little disappointed in the turn out for last Saturday’s Swamp Stomp, I’m ecstatic about this weekend.  You can still register at Red Dirt Running Co. on Friday from 10:00- 6:00 pm and then Saturday morning out at the Patch beginning at 6:30 am.

Congratulations to our Good Mates York Thomas and Megan Zavorka.  They will be tying the knot on Saturday afternoon.  Such a cute and speedy pair, you can tell they were made for each other!  And in a couple of weeks it will be Uriah Shaver and Kyla Vala getting hitched.   Another of our favorite twosomes.   Love potions all around!

The eyes have it!  A very happy foursome celebrating running and living as we wrap up 2012 and Wednesday night.
