State #32, June 22, 2013: Missouri, Kirkwood (Near St. Louis)

Run #33 (DC and 32 states), Saturday, June 22
Seize the Day 5K to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Missouri & Kansas

1st Place in the 60 and over division with a time of 24:29. Humid, hot, and hilly.

Kirkwood is a beautiful hilly suburb on the southwest side of Saint Louis.

At the starting line

And we are off...

I was lucky to get to know Nathan and his daughter Julia (smart and fast) who will be a senior in the fall.

They are making strawberry and banana crepes.
Very tasty and quite unexpected at a 5K.
It was a great morning in Kirkwood. The next 5K is in Buffalo, NY on Wednesday evening.

But between now and then, we have two Texas Rangers -- St Louis Cardinals baseball games to go to.
See pictures from Saturday night's Ranger--Cardinal game at the bottom of the post.

32 States and DC Completed (blue).
Scheduled for June and July (red).
Scheduled After July (gray).

Saturday night, June 22: Texas Rangers at the St Louis Cardinals
GrandSlamTrip Baseball Game #10

Friends David and Marla (in the middle) from Springfield, Missouri, drove to St Louis to join us for Saturday night's game.
The two on the right got engaged today. That is David's daughter Courtney and her fiancé Joe. They make a great couple, and we wish them a long and happy marriage.

Rangers win 4-2?
