    We had an awesome run this morning, meeting up with many of our friends from SDR. It was a blessing to see our SDR leaders demonstrating the gift of giving of their time by helping to sign in runners and walkers, as well as running themselves. My friend Ruth got some terrific pictures I will be posting. As I have been battling Hepatitis C for 24 years and getting stronger and healthier through my running, it was really amazing to meet 14 year-old Nicholas who just had a liver transplant and dozens of kids from his school who were there to support him at the event.

    I love this run! Perfect weather, galloping giraffes, and supporting a great cause. I recognized a few SDR runners....but clearly I need to get out to the weekly runs more often.

    We are racing a 5k inside of the San Diego Zoo today. I hope they fed the lions & tigers before the race. Pity the stragglers if they didn't!
