Most people would agree that drugs can be harmful to the brain and nervous system, but how many think twice before eating a bag of MSG laden chips.

It's the last weekend of summer and on Saturday I lead our weekly run at Quicksilver Almaden. The trail is hilly, challenging and breathtakingly beautiful. I may hate the first 10 minutes or so, but I am never sorry I went. My daughter Erin has a blog and she has inspired me to share the things in life that make me smile.

Just wanted to give a public forewarning for any who may be thinking of do something in the woods. I've heard through word of mouth of multiple copperhead sightings and a dog that was bit, so just be on the lookout if your out enjoying the wilderness. Usually they hang out in rocky areas, so just keep an eye out. Was just mountain biking and didn't see any, but when ur cruising down a mountain at 20 mph it's kind of hard to notice much of anything besides what to avoid crashing into ;)
