And I want to also send my thoughts and virtual hugs to the city of West, Texas, after a devastating explosion that basically pummeled the town. Again, my country is hit with another tragedy in a week. I just don't have the words to express my emotions. I have so much to donate, but yet everyone is taking donations to the North of me. Hopefully, somebody will take donations in the South side.
I know these tragedies won't keep our country, state, or the running community down; we are strong!
So back to the real reason for this post...
Did you think I was done with my posts about Retreat in the Pines? Well, I wasn't. I decided to combine this in one post and hopefully, it won't be as long as the last post.
|JL and I before our hike...it was obviously cold.|
|Zoe is our lead guide.|
|He heard a noise.|
|I ran ahead to get this picture of the group walking.|
We got to the turnaround point so that we could do some yoga stretches. This would be a first for me and I really liked it. We were in the middle of the country road just doing some yoga and thankfully, no cars. I trusted that Theresa would let us know if cars came, while we had our eyes close. In fact, only one car drove by during our walk back.

|My roommates for the weekend.|
|This tree was seriously eye catching.|
|JL and I in the tree pose.|
|We found a great tree to do some yoga poses.|
|I had to try it, too.|
|It's too early. It's too bright. It's too much exercise.|
|And she thought I would just forget to run. HA!|
|Zoe wanted to make sure we knew the way.|
|So what if they forgot to take down the Christmas lights, it was still pretty to see on our run.|
|WHOA! I want a sign like this.|
|I made JL do the same thing.|
|This was my favorite picture.|
|Sweaty and feeling good after our two mile run.|
On May 4, 2013, I will participate again in the Sprint for Life 5K to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research in honor of MaloRee, BranDee, and MegGan whom lost their mom to this horrible disease. I also run in honor of my Great Aunt, Betty who lost this battle, as well. Please donate here or join us on Team Teapot. My goal is $2,000 this year and I just know we can reach it.
