Pink Saturday

Spring is finally around the corner. So you will hear me talking about running a lot! I am like an old bear in the winter time. I hibernate! So now I have to lace up my running shoes and get busy! While we were in New York City, I noticed there  were people everywhere and they tend to be very fit! You have to move quickly through the throngs of people so I am glad I had some good shoes made for running, walking and generally climbing those stairs up and down to the subway stations! It was a wonderful trip. We were so blessed to watch Nick run at the Armory. Two weeks earlier we watched some Olympic  athletes run in that same venue.
Nick was given a card belonging to the gentleman that shot the photos. Nick, in orange, ran well. He ran in the distance medley and the 1200 meter. Although he did not qualify for finals he had an incredible experience. Indoor track is so fast! The distance races go so quickly. I think it is the way the track is set up. Amazing! Visiting NYC was quite an experience for most of the kids he runs with. Now he can settle down for outdoor track and conscentrate on deciding on school for next year. Cowley is a two year college and he likes Wichita State. He will decide soon and start planning his next adventure.

Now I would love this shirt! So hop over to Beverly's and visit some Pinkie's today!

Glad you had a nice trip and back safely in the pink. I try to walk, but running or jogging is out for me.

Thank you for stopping by at *my place* and for entering my giveaway last week. It's lovely to *meet* you. Your post made me smile. I know what you mean about winter hibernation. In the night (awake in the wee hours for awhile) I was thinking about cycling once again...outdoors. Yes, spring calls, doesn't it? Blessings to you! Camille
