2013 Stockade-athon 15K

Today was the race & the weather was not that great.  I am now working Sundays all day so I went to work early & then had someone come in to cover me so I could go to the race.
We met Mark & Dani in the park about a half hour before the race was crazy how many people were there!
LiLi was not happy about wearing her hat but was so excited when she found out I had hand warmers.  I had one for each of us but it wasn't long before she had both of them.  They ended up in her boots as she decided her feet were cold.  We missed the start of the race  because she had to go to the bathroom.  Then we ended up standing in the wrong spot (thanks to a race official who didn't know which way they were running) so this was as close as we got to seeing them after they left the park.
It was so cold & damp so we took LiLi inside the pavilion where they had a huge fireplace.  We hung out there for a while & had hot chocolate.
We were able to catch Dani when she had just over a mile to run.
This is where she spotted LiLi with sign...we also had a cow bell to ring.  We missed Mark due to another bathroom break!
This is about 100 yards short of the finish line
Here comes Mark finishing strong.
These are the unofficial results......Mark shaved 15 minutes off of last year's time!
1059 562 Danielle Emerle 40 F Clifton Park NY 1:24:56  
 1433 563 Mark Emerle 48 M  Clifton Park NY  1:32:11 

Mark & Dani you are awesome.....congratulations on another great race!

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
