Fortunately I got to run with Deb and her husband, Bill, on the Huckleberry Trail this morning. Unfortunately, I had one of the worst long runs I have had since starting my training for the Thunder Road Marathon. As always, it was great to run on the Huckleberry and to run with new friends.
Fortunately it was relatively cool, albeit a bit humid, outside. Unfortunately, it was not as cool
as last weekend
. There are definitely signs of fall in the air and on the trail, though. The trees are so pretty this time of year.
Fortunately Hank and Scout love their new over sized hedgehog and duck toys. Unfortunately Barry will probably be unhappy with me for buying them new toys (since they tend to chew cloth toys to pieces). He prefers I stick to rawhides, which the dogs really enjoy. But it’s so fun watching them run around the house with a “baby” and it makes them happy. Plus these new toys grunt/quack instead of squeaking.

Fortunately the Hokies won our football game against Marshall today. Unfortunately, it took three overtime periods to win it and I nearly had a heart attack several times. It took a good 10 minutes after the game for my heart rate to return to normal.
Fortunately I cheered on my Hokies with gusto to assure a win. Unfortunately, Hank and Scout are less than interested in football and would prefer I stop waking them up. There were a few instances where I was yelling at the TV and Scout would jump into my lap and lick my face.
Unfortunately I am feeling a little down on myself after today’s run. Fortunately I found this sweet YouTube video, which cheered me up.
Tell me some of your fortunately, unfortunately’s.
