Drizzle has stopped; there's only ~0.001 the mud and puddles that friends doing the Seneca Creek 50k are enjoying this fine day. Lovely canine ornaments decorate lawns in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and Kensington.http://zhurnaly.com/images/running/three_kensington_lawn_dogs_2019-03-02_t.jpg

Does one say, 'They is wearing their dress'?" A pair of picky grammarians debate edge-cases in modern language. Pippi Roadkill plays Thing-Finder and arrives home with 2 Metro farecards, a happy-face pencil, a discarded yarmulke, and a fancy steel pocket-tool.
At mile 11 he attacks the Mormon Temple Hill and does a 5:55 half mile climb, much-needed prep for the "Runamuck 50k" in Vermont that he fantasizes about attempting in mid-April. Don't remind him about the DC Marathon 8 days away!http://zhurnaly.com/images/running/kensington_green_lawn_dog_2019-03-02b_t.jpg
