Sharon Training

Training for the 5K

RISE 'N SHINE! It's the 19th annual 5K Road Race on Friday, September 28th. And when they say "Rise 'N Shine" they mean it! Registration for the 5K starts at 6:00AM and the race begins at sunrise at 6:35. We'll be starting at Kennebec Savings Bank in Augusta and running on the Kennebec Rail Trail. Not only is it "Rise 'N Shine", it's rain or shine as well! It all benefits the Kennebec Valley YMCA.

I've done 5K's before but I haven't run one since last summer.  You need to train for this kind of thing. You just can't get up one day and run. If you do, you'll be sorry the next day and could seriously injure yourself.

Debbie Myers and Friends Benefit for Maine Homeless Veterans this Sunday

There has been a challenge issued to top officials around the country from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to end homelessness among veterans within five years. Brian Stiller, Togus Medical Center Director thinks it can be accomplished, but not by the VA alone. In Maine, on any given night, there are between 600 to 1000 homeless vets and the actual number may be higher since homeless vets in rural areas never make it to homeless shelters so they never get counted.  These are the people that served our country and were willing, if necessary, to put their life on the line for our freedom.

Sharon’s Apple Pie!

With all of the apples we picked on Sunday at the Apple Farm in Fairfield, I need to get some good use out of them! I have always been envious of people who make the apple pies at the fairs that win the blue ribbons. I don't believe I'll ever be creative enough to make such a beautiful looking pie but at least mine tastes good!

Sharon’s High School Homecoming?

Ok. You can stop laughing. Yes, that is my high school yearbook picture. 1992 was a very good year. However, not a good year for fashion.

The reason I humiliate myself in front of all of you today is to tell you the exciting news I received yesterday. I receieved a phone call from my old woodshop teacher, Mr. Mark Swett. It was such a surprise!

Awesome Banana Bread…Yum!

When I first became a wife in 1995 my mother gave me one of her biggest treasures. It wasn't jewelry or photos of my ancestors or advice handed down from generation to generation. It wasn't her wedding dress to wear on my big day. It wasn't something new, something borrowed or blue...but it was something old.
