  1. Cindy,
    Your Top 25 is quite inspiring and very well written -- it's given me some ideas. Super Blog -- I'm glad I ran into you.

  2. Hi Cindy,

    Thanks for your comment yesterday on my blog - I appreciate it. I love your 25 things - I might "steal" the idea for my blog! I ran the Yakima River Canyon Marathon a few years ago - it remains one of my favorite marathons - you will really enjoy it.
