She’s no monster but surely can dash.  After running around the store all day, up and down ladders hanging pictures, constantly arranging and rearranging furniture for vinettes and displays, it was off to serious running along the Mississippi River almost every evening after a full day’s work. Today was the test of all her dedicated training. At mile post 8 Megan gracefully sailed past us with her beautiful smile in what appeared to be just another lovely Minnesota crisp fall morning walk in the park, not a gruling marathon run. We are so proud of Megan, a real winner.
