I have a knack for doing things in untraditional ways.
Join me as I go through life in an out-of-sequence way.

Yay! I just dropped off my second 5K registration form in the mail today. I'm talking about the Squire Creek Louisiana Peach Festival in Ruston, La. Did I mention that I consider Ruston as my home? I went to college there and then, back again for graduate school at Louisiana Tech University. I love that place, that town. There are a whole lot of good nice people there with good ol' Southern hospitality.
I didn't find a map of the route, but it said on the registration form that it loops through the university campus. I am excited. I ran around the campus just once. It was after my days as a student. I ran around the campus after a 5K trail run race at a nearby park. During that run, I wondered why haven't I started running earlier? There is a wonderful group of ladies I used to work for as a student worker who train for marathons all the time. The campus is also quite pretty. I am really excited to be able to do this upcoming 5K with at least a friend - the one who got me started running. This will be our 3rd 5K together and we are looking at doing a half marathon together sometime later in the winter or early next year. I love running with friends.
I'll leave you with some pictures of Ruston, La.
My alma mater makes delicious ice cream and the best skim milk. I used to get an ice cream cone on Fridays after class. Their skim milk is creamy and yummy - not the diluted kind you get at the store.
A view of the university. In the spring time, we have lots of pretty tulips blooming.
