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!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

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!
