Good morning and TGIF! Check out the sky from last night’s walk. I love looking at clouds and took quite a few pictures before we started walking and a few after. It was such a beautiful evening to be out walking.
Tomorrow is my FIRST 5K since my SECOND surgery. It is called Hotter n Hell and is always one of my favorite 5Ks. The weather forecast puts it at 69 degrees with 87% humidity. Shouldn’t be too terribly bad. My goal is to NOT start off too fast and try to keep a consistent pace. I am not going for any personal records, I just want to complete the distance and feel good doing it.
Following the race I am heading to a 31 meeting. I know I just got back from conference but our C&C (Celebrate and Connect) is this Saturday. I am sure we will discuss conference and all the new fabulous products coming this Fall. And, because 31 is so fabulous, we will also walk away with an amenity.
Then the rest of the weekend I plan to CATCH UP. I was gone for 4 days and feel 2 weeks behind. I hope to get completely back on track by Monday. My todo list keeps growing and growing.

Having just come back from a conference I will tell you that we took food and had breakfast in the food before we left.
