I've been living for the weekends lately, just so I can hit that door at quitting time on Friday and not have to think about work again until Monday morning. This weekend was the Color Up 5k. Since we live out in the middle of no where, we don't often get the chance to have large organizations bring in things like Color runs or mud runs or obstacle runs. But I'm seeing a turn in the tide, San Angelo is being put on the map since we are currently in a very fast paced growth spurt.
Anyway, it was so amazing to see SO MANY PEOPLE come together for the Color Up run! Just more proof that events like this are really good for the community and city. It was FREEZING Saturday morning...not as bad as the Hot Chocolate run last year, but still. As we waited for the race to get started the sun came up and more and more people gathered. The music was pumping and the array of colorful wigs, socks, and tutus kept us entertained.
The race was just what it was suppose to be..fun!
One of my favorite authors, Pamela Clare, has a prequel novella out today (e-format only), First Strike. This is short story set up for her next full length novel, Striking Distance, that will be out on November 5th. You all know I'm an avid romance reader, but I don't usually plug or review books here on this blog. And I'm not really trying to do that here either, I just thought I'd put it out there. Her books are really good, so if you haven't read any of them and were looking for something new to get into..put Pamela Clare on your list.
In the same vein, there is a little rumor going around (started by the author herself) that Tara Janzen might be writing a Steele Street novella. She is another author that should be on your list. So good.
