Rainy days and Mondays

Just as we were ending a 5 mile run yesterday, it started to rain. No complaints and I won't let it get me down, we need all we can get.

The latest BCS standings came out last night.  Houston moved up to #8.  The top 3 spots are SEC schools. #1 LSU hosts #3 Arkansas on the 25th.  Arkansas will have to play while dealing with the death of one of their players.  Most bowl projections have the BCS Championship game being a rematch between LSU and Alabama.

The Cowboys have climbed into a tie for 1st place in the NFC East.  Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be out for a while taking care of a broken thumb.  Caleb Hanie, who graduated from Forney High School will take Cutlers place as the starting QB for the Bears. Can anyone beat the Packers?

Brian and I will be running in the YMCA Turkey Trot in downtown Dallas.  We ran the 5k race last year, in wet cold weather.  This year the weather is supposed to be better and we are going to run the 8 mile course.  Its not a race to run for time.  Its a race for fun.

Its time for open enrollment at work.  This year they are giving a discount to all tobacco free employees. I am so thankful that I quit smoking over 6 years ago.

Yea for the rain! Will you two dress up for the Turkey Trot, if it a costumed-eight-miler? And good on you for over six smoke-free years.

Gosh, I miss running in a turkey trot. Have fun. Thanks for posting this week's BCS standings. I still find it hard to believe Michigan is ranked right below MSU. Wisconsin plays Penn State this Sat. to determine who we'll play for the Big 10 title. Bring on the Badgers! It'll be a great rematch.
