Did you know?

Did you know...

That there are fewer moments as wonderful as running through the woods alone on a trail carpeted in crimson leaves, sun trickling through the colorful trees, cold air filling your lungs?

 Did you know that the state of Maine has full bragging rights to the most exquistely beautiful autumn going?  (of course you did...)

Did you know that there is a new food on the fair/carnival menu?  It's called the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger. Yup.  You guessed it.  Some rocket scientist had the brain child to put a burger on a sliced donut and people are going crazy for it.  It is deemed "a dietitian's worst nightmare."  You think?

That Maya watches the movie "Annie" so often that she walks around the house saying "WE LOVE YOU MS. HANNIGAN!"  over and over?

Did you know that Ella told Skyler the other day, completely out of the blue: "Jesus lived a long time ago.  Like before my great, great, great, great grandparents.  Maybe even back when the dinosaurs were alive."  (This was especially unusual because there isn't a whole lotta Jesus talk in our house.)

That Ellen Degeneres (a vegan lesbian it should be noted) is the 10th most powerful woman in the world?

That a wife of one of the rescued miner's went into labor within a few hours of her husband's rescue?  Jeesh, talk about good timing!

Did you know that this Sunday my running girls and I are running the Mount Desert Island Marathon as a relay?  And that that means I get to run the last leg of a marathon on fresh, new legs?  (I'm sure people are going to want to trip me and spit at me as I did when I ran the Burlington Marathon and relay runners were sprinting past me.  Should be fun.)

I am basically just piping in to see if the comments are working, HOWEVER, I hate to burst your bubble, but hiking/driving through the White Mountains last weekend totally blows Maine's "exquistely beautiful autumn" away. Really. It was indescribable.

Third - "go runners"! You and your fresh legs may just end up on the Darling's website, so kick some butt!
