Please enjoy this slightly updated Deb Runs favorite as Bill and I celebrate our thirty-eighth wedding anniversary…   There once was a college freshman who threw a snowball at the window of a nearby dorm. Even though she didn’t know it at the time, inside that room was her prince charming. She started dating the cute guy inside […]

Remembering Why We Celebrate Memorial Day

Today’s post is a favorite rerun from a previous Memorial Day… On this Memorial Day weekend, let us not forget those who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we might live freely in this beautiful country. May God bless our nation’s heroes buried at Arlington National Cemetery; and we must not forget those […]

Buddy’s Late-Night Adventures

I first posted this in December 2015 and it remains one of my favorite DebRuns posts. I hope you enjoy!   The basement was quiet without any noise, No banging or clanging of any gym toys. Just a few empty bottles, and a little spilled water, I nervously wondered if we had a free-loading squatter. Forgetting the season, forgetting […]

The Perfect Christmas Tree for a Wide-Eyed Little Girl

As a couple, Bill and I have never gone out and cut down a Christmas tree. For several years, we purchased our Christmas tree from a nursery, but eventually started buying them from our local volunteer fire department. I reasoned that the fire department would surely sell the freshest-cut trees in town. Looking back, I’m […]

Feeling Grateful On Thanksgiving

As sad as I am that our youngest son Daniel won’t be with us this year for Thanksgiving, his first for not being with us for at least part of the day, I’m happy that he and Jess are having a fun trip to Ireland with Jess’ family. I’m grateful that if we can’t have […]

Five Years Later And It Still Doesn’t Seem Real

Some days it seems like it’s been forever since my dad passed away, and at other times it seems like it was just yesterday that I last hugged him goodbye before driving home from his hospital room. Today is the five-year anniversary of his death and in tribute to my amazing dad, here’s a rerun of […]

A Little Girl, A Big Forest, And Finding The Perfect Christmas Tree

Flying Deer, Rabid Animals; And What’s The Difference Between A Runner And A Jogger?

Today’s post originally ran 0n December 10, 2013, but when another rabid animal attacked a runner in Maine just last month, I thought it was time to update the post with the newest story… You’re not going to believe this story that I heard about on TV, and later read about in this Washington Post […]

Ten Years Later And Hokie Nation Is Stronger Than Ever

Today I’m asking forgiveness from Holly and Tricia as I link my non-weekly-wrap post to their linkup. Later this evening I will be posting my normal weekly wrap, but today’s anniversary weighs heavily and I need to share the good to balance out the negative… ************************************************* I’m often asked what it is that gives me such love for […]

Merry Christmas, My Friends!

Joy To The World! The Lord Has Come Let Earth Receive Her King…       Merry Christmas, My Friends!   Questions: Are you going to be with family today? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, what do you usually do on December 25 since most businesses are closed? Did you run today?

The Elf In The Gym

Just a few empty bottles, and a little spilled water, I nervously wondered if we had a free-loading squatter. Forgetting the season, forgetting the time, I was slightly afraid […]
