I was very busy after the half-marathon this weekend.  Busy resting on Saturday, then busy with leaves and other yard work on Sunday.  So, please enjoy this guest post from my mother-in-law, Shirley Albertson Owens of the Blog:

Here they are doing some pre-run warm ups. Cooper is in the red hat and Sarah is wearing a white hat.
