Sweet Home…

February 3, 2008

It turned out to be a good week to get out of Southern Ontario with all the snow that fell.  I kind of miss the winter and the snow, but I’ll take running on a dirt road in shorts and t-shirt for now.  I ran 176km this past week with a couple of good workouts with Tim (Konoval).  Tim and I have been running with the Auburn University distance everyday and they are showing all their routes .  Coach Pete Watson and the crew have been very welcoming.  After Friday’s workout the team took us out to Mike and Ed’s, a Southern style BBQ restaurant, (the ribs were great).

I’m staying with my Great Aunt Lorna, (all her great nephews and nieces call her Nornee) who lives in Auburn about two miles from the University.  Nornee has been a wonderful host and it’s been great to spend some time with her.  Tim comes over almost every night for dinner and we get to sit around and hear stories from Nornee.  A of couple friends were asking how Nornee is doing, she is doing very well.  Here is the video where you can hear Nornee’s Southern accent.  God bless her heart.

    Oh my goodness Reid!
    What can I say–so happy you are enjoying your southern roots–and the video interview is priceless!
