My heart is aching for the victims and families of yet another shooting tragedy on Ft. Hood.  I hope that those involved are not parents of any of my students!  My school is immediately outside the east gate of Ft. Hood and I drive on post every couple of weeks, and thankfully did not go on yesterday or I would have been included in the lockdown.  It is so sad that the shooter was a soldier, in uniform, who had every right to be on the base, and yet stole our sense of safety in his act.  Our soldiers have been deployed to war zones over and OVER and we are now seeing the results of what that does to them.  Why someone who is hurting and angry has to take out other lives is beyond me, take your own, but killing others will not lessen your pain !!  Our community will pull through this once more, but we are hurting...



 So our principal let us go home as soon as our students were dismissed which on Thursdays means 2 hours early!  I thought I could get a bike in, but it was pretty windy and when I got home and checked the weather, there is a tornado watch!  So yeah, I though probably a NO on that....

Absolutely gorgeous morning for a trail run.... this was definitely a run/walk. So I'm okay with that pace! My goal is to one day be able to run the whole thing. Best part was NO SNAKES! I really worry about that with the weather warming up, especially since the trails are wooded with rocks or lined by tall grass or is near the river.... rattlesnakes, water moccasins are NOT my friends and I NEVER want to see them!

Smoking Spokes ride... awesome day with awesome bike friends! I am glad we did not try to push to do the 57 miles, that would surely have hurt! We are shooting for that distance for the next big ride in May.
