Okay, so the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl in a really ridiculous ending. Bummer.
But the day was not without its triumphs for my wife, Marilynn, and me. We decided to take a run to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge before the big game. Because of knee problems, she had been unable to get all the way to the end of the all-year trail during the past two years I have been volunteering there. However, because of corrective surgery last October and a lot of determined recovery work on her part, Marilynn got out to the observation deck quite comfortably.
In an homage to Rocky Balboa, she did a little victory dance.
