Welcome Home Soldiers

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 11:01 am

This morning I drove out to DFW Airport to welcome some of our soldiers home from Iraq for two weeks of R&R. I don’t believe that this war is worth the cost, but I do believe in the men & women that are fighting. They are following their own path, and I am here to support them. Awhile back, I stumbled across the blog of a soldier currently in Iraq. He has some interesting thoughts and ideas. Again, not ones that I am particularly in agreement with on all levels, but he is willing to debate and consider the thoughts of anyone who cares to post. He’s on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, but if you take the time to read his archives (at least his original posts…the comments sections can be quite lengthy), you’ll get a good idea of what some of the soldiers are going through. For the men and women that arrived home today, I shook their hands, hugged them, welcomed them home, and hopefully showed them that they are appreciated. They are indeed.

Track Run

I had a good track run this morning. Seems like I have a good track run after a crappy marathon pace run…I’ve seen this pattern before.

3 miles, 31:50, 10:35 average pace

I will have to run some more tonight. My plan to get to the track early didn’t work out this morning, and I had somewhere to be (post to come) early this morning.
