Glad you were able to enjoy yourself even if you couldn't run...man to have your energy. I can't imagine ever saying I was glad I could ride my bike because I couldn't run! Do what you need to do to heal.


Why it´s the cutest, slightly crossed-eyed circus-monkey I´ve seen! ;-) I think he´s gonna do great at collecting money!
Sorry to hear about your knee. Hope you get well soon. and while you are recovering, enjoy all the other stuff that you do have access to. Have a great day!


that burger looks mighty tastey.... not running... well now you know how i feel... i never run, just 'cos i'd rather bumble thru life!! ;0)

Michelle, we missed you at Hood to Coast. Your shirt design was awesome and wore them proudly crossing the finish line.
Best to You,


i don't think i can swing artfest AGAIN!

that stinks about your running!
that has to be the worst for a marathon crazy girl like you.
i would sit back and eat my peanut m&ms and say "oh darn...i can't run"


sending happy thoughts your way.


O.k. I just wiped the drool off my chin, where's that burger place!? Yum...wish they served that madness at artfest! Which by the way my registration is in the mail this morning! hopefully we'll be roomies again...yipee!

you'll be running in no time. Look at me, my knee was retarded back in march...it is possible! happy to hear you have cycling to fill the void!(for now) :)



I sent you a pic of a I love my bike shirt. It's so cute :)

I love the monkey....will be getting this one.


Oh I just love your funky clocks and just bought one. How about a clock that featuresca computer geek? Thanks for your clocks!!!!
