I managed to get a run in before the rain returned. I ran in the neighborhood around UT Tuler.

We honored two mothers last night at the Tyler Catholic School Foundation dinner. Mary Prudhomme and Martha Ann Roy Lehnertz exemplify the qualities we celebrate in our mothers. They were women of faith and family who dedicated their lives to others. As we celebrated them last night I celebrated my mother also and I'm sure the people present thought of their mothers also.
