CTR 10k pictures and a dead bird on my porch

 Well, I finally got the race pictures uploaded on my laptop.  I am going to post some of my favorites! hope you guys enjoy it!!  my mother in law took these pictures with my canon EOS

 They are of my overall male finishers, my buddy john from KY finishing the race and showing off his award, beth the ultra running goddess finishing the race, and one of me explaining the course set up ( look at the horses! I just thought the morning sunlight made that picture look neat) and the start of the first annual CTR 10k!!

   I am going to Richlands tomorrow to the farm to spend time with my parents.  I am looking forward to going. It's nice to go home:o) AND it's my birthday on Friday. I will be 30!  (which is kinda freaking me out)
 Today the saddest thing happened! I had just woke up this morning and I heard something slam against the front door and my little yorkie fred took off to the door ( like someone was there) I was a little apprehensive, but then I remembered that the front door was locked and I had the security system set. 
SO I finally got up to investigate, and there was a bird laying flat on it's back on my front porch! it had ran into my door. I told it: "please be gone when I come back in 5 minutes" I was hoping it was just stunned or it had knocked itself out.  I went and fixed myself a cup of coffee, and walked back to the front door and no, unfortunately the little birdie was deceased:o( It accidently killed itself. how terrible!) By that point Jack was up and about and  saw it. So we had to have a conversation about the finality of death and then we buried it.. I just was so afraid that a cat or dog would get it if I left it there any longer.  and It was such a pretty bird, I wanted it treated with respect. poor thing. So Jack and I laid it to rest. RIP little birdie.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

Egad! That fellow in the top pic looks like he's about to end up like the poor bird on your porch! ;)

Seriously, though, thanks for posting those pics!
