You get what you get...

...and you don't get upset.

For my birthday today,
Yeah, it's my Birthday today.
Thanks for all the well wishes.
I share it with others, like Amanda's handsome hubby.
But back to me.
This morning LBM wanted to give me a present.
He thought rocks would suitable.

And he was insistent.

You get what you get and you don't get upset.

But you know, rocks are not such a bad gift.

I worked alongside my grandfather picking them out of the garden.
I've spent some wonderful races running over them.
I passed childhood afternoons searching for them in fields.
I eagerly waited to get a shiny one from just the right guy.

And this morning, the cutest little guy I know who has enjoyed more miles with his crazy running mommy than one little man should have to, give me a whole handfull of preciousness.

I think I'm gonna say Yes.

This is Day # 187 ~ 4.1 miles to celebrate.

 DC rainmaker is hosting a Forerunner 210 Giveaway!
Since it is my birthday I think I should win this but you should hop over and met the rainmaker yourself.  He is up to quite a lot and has loads of great posts and reviews to learn from.
So click over and enter but stay a while a read up on another great athlete.
