First, let me just say I'm sorry for going so long without a post. I have no excuse. I've been lax. This weekend we've been busy. I spent nearly all of yesterday baking bread, cookies, congo bars (a la Margie), lemon pound cake and the dough for biscuits for today. "What's today?" you ask? Today was the first annual ING-sponsored Georgia Marathon. Joy and I took advantage of the moment to have a bakesale to raise funds for the 3-Day. We raised $43. Not bad for a couple hours' work that commenced at 7AM on a Sunday. I got up at 5 to bake the biscuits so they'd be all fresh and scrumptious as the cheering neighbors arrived with their coffee.
It was a lot of fun. Our friends Brendon (Steve & Joy's next door neighbor seen above, giving the thumb's up. There's his family and other neighbors cheering him on), Rusty (seen here training in his gayass running shorts. Hey, I think he's wearing the same ones in today's run...), Jennifer (I missed her when she came by because I was hocking biscuits) and Cheryl (seen here, supporting another 3-Day fundraiser with her husband, Karl), all ran the full marathon. There were a lot of runners. We cheered ourselves hoarse at the Oakhurst cheering section. Yes, my neighborhood is technically East Lake...but the marathon didn't go through it so I had to cheer in the next best spot. Kate showed up late with Jeremiah and Sarah, but still supported the marathon with her ING-orange balloon and our bakesale, by eating a cookie. She's a giver. Bakesale and marathon complete...we closed up shop and headed out for a training walk. Can't be outdone by those runners!
