Rainy Day Redwoods…

When it’s pouring rain, I love walking in the redwoods (Redwood Park).  The streams are raging; leaf, bark, and moss are slick and shiny; colors pop; and the forest is filled with a dewy fog…

Nevertheless, I am definitely hoping for some sun this weekend for our 2nd Annual Oakland Running Festival (aka Marathon). Thanks to everyone who supported my fundraising efforts (I surpassed my goal last night!) You all are AMAZING, and I will try to do you proud in my race tomorrow! Wish me luck… and get out there and support the runners if you can. If the weather perks up a bit, it should be a blast.
