More xc schooling and more half marathon

We went back to Laurel Hill, this time with Rachel on the horse she is leasing and Missy riding Digger, a sales horse. Missy expressed some concern about the wisdom of taking three fairly green OTTBs xc schooling together, but she needn't have worried. All were very well behaved, quiet and willing to jump. It was great fun. Finn jumps out there just like in the ring, so we mostly jumped little logs, trying to get him to jump from very near them, rather than standing off and launching. It went pretty well. Dinner last night, with Lesley, Susie, Chris and surprise guest Amanda at Teresa's Cafe in Wayne Great food and wonderful company. Last Sunday, ran the ING Philadelphia Distance run. Perfect day, nice course, personal best half marathon time, though still slow. Next week San Jose
