The Chapel of Saints Peter and Paul continues to make good progress. I felt for the workers on the cold days last week still working away, putting decking on the roof and laying brick. I was cold as I served as Crossing Guard on the Gorman campus for only a few minutes..........I know the workers were cold way up in the rafters!!!!

I confess I didn't get in any runs during the coldest days but I did keep up with my indoor workouts. I have a stair stepper that I use for days when I can't run and it gives you a pretty good workout.

I need to get a "set of runs" on the calendar!!
