I had a wonderful conversation with Robin this evening. She is in a second rehab center that specializes in her type of head injury. Robin is upbeat, her sparkling, optimistic voice is solid as ever. She has come a long way since the Sept. 5 accident. Check back to that date for early posts.
Robin is walking regularily and hopes to be back on the trail running scene soon. She visits this site and sends thanks to all hoping and praying for her return to health.
If you are in the neighborhood come on out to the Greenbank Observatory for a post Thanksgiving 5k. Wild Man Mike Stennes, radio astronomer and runner, puts on the event to benefit the local high school xc team. A flat run around the radio telescopes and aliens. Plenty of good post run pizza too!
