Do I get any bonus points?

This morning I ran 9 miles. It was raining. It was windy. One time the wind almost knocked me over. Do I get any bonus points for this? I know the answer. No. But the satisfaction after having done something tough? Well, that is priceless. And the frozen yogurt with carob chips (and 5 chocolate malt balls on top) that I ate guilt free? Priceless as well!

Congrats to your son!!!!

Whenever I see people out running in terrible weather as I drive by in my warm car I always think - "I wish I was like them!" So bonus points for sure!

Oh yeah, and I've been meaning to tell you I did pigtails, I kinda liked it, Megan loved that we had the same hairdo, and my hubby thought it was weird. No accounting for taste.

Congrats to your son with the second place! That's wonderful!
