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

5 miles - campus loops - 9:35/9:15(2)

been sick the last couple of days but didn’t want 3 days in a row of no running so i gutted one out today - didn’t feel good at any point during the run.  my wife and i are still doing our daily walks and i’ve been doing some yard work, so it’s not like i’ve been completely sedentary. i was sick with similar symptoms last month too!
