Driving west, on a lonely Kansas highway. June 2006.

More photos of our cross-country road trip for your viewing pleasure. It's our second to last morning here in Tahoe. We pack up tomorrow and head out around 1 pm to the Bay area to see E.'s fam for dinner. My grandmother, who is obdurate and selfish in the best of times, will be with us. It'll be the first time for her to meet E.'s relatives. Should be veddy interesting.

MCM Marathon Training: I got an email from my coach for my running club's marathon training program. I'm in a group with five or so other runners who are experienced marathoners. I'll be the newbie of the bunch, with only one 26.2 miler underneath my belt. Hmm. Also, my coach is fast: She ran the Boston Marathon this year in 3:11. Flat.


  1. good luck with grams...yep, your coach is fast! today was fun. missed you.

  2. I love the pics. I hope Nelson didn't show any disrespect (if you know what I mean) to the presidential seal.
    Glad to hear you're running where you can.

  3. Gosh, it's been awhile since I've stopped here, so I'm finally catching up. :)
