Personal:

born in 1964. married 25 years. one wife one dog

6 ft tall, nation wide

"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

 

"I cruised down hills, churned up hills, and floated over the asphalt, existing in a world that seemed to lack the confinements of such ubiquitous rivets as time, obligation, or pain. I knew then that this was destined to be one of those serendipitous runs for which so many of 
us strive yet so rarely achieve." J. Nevels

no run - been sick the last couple of days, sore scratchy throat, general malaise etc. i havent been sick in over two years...i don't miss it

plus the water pressure regulator at my house is leaking and needs to be replaced so that takes some of the fun out of the upcoming weekend

good times

live to run another day.

7.2 miles on the bst from kwp to fernwood out and back - 12:30/11:57(7)

1211pm - sun, low 90's

wasn't going to run today but an opportunity arose for a lunchtime run and i took it - my pace on this route is significantly slower when the temps are in the 90's - still totally worth it. plus, nobody was out there, except the horseflies...
