One for the Closer. Farewell Mariano Rivera

One thing you may or may not know about me, is that I am a die hard Yankee fan. Born and bred. And as much as it nauseates me, this season has proven that I am also not a bandwagoner. For the first time in a very very very very long time, there is no postseason Yankee baseball to watch as they did not make the playoffs,..or even the Wildcard. Yikes. 

But the Yankees sent Mariano Rivera off in a fine fashion last night at Yankee stadium. Mariano, was joined by Andy Pettite and Derek Jeter, part of the Core Four (minus Jorge Posada) The three players have known each other since they were in the minors in the early 1990s, and all three came up to the Yankees for the first time in 1995.

Even if you are a die hard Red Sox fan, your heart will move a little bit at this sendoff.

Its Fitness Friday!! I have a new pair of running shoes that I have been wearing. For the first time since I started my running treck I changed my shoes. I feel a little guilty, haha my poor Mizzunos are sitting there while my new Asics and I are out on a little jaunt. I like them, they are lighter...and they don't make my feet hurt...all really good things. It has rained every day here for the past week, so tomorrow I am looking to get out for a good run...I hope everyone has a great weekend.
