I ran cross country and track in high school in good old Indiana and at Valparaiso University in college. I've been married for 14 years now to my beautiful wife Kathleen. We have 3 wonderful kids, and I teach physics, astronomy, and earth science at Lake Land College in Mattoon, IL.
It was a nice sunny day. I did 4.5 on my own on my Walgreens-Wabash loop in 33:30 (7:27/mile). It had been awhile since I ran that loop. My legs have felt fine, and this has been a pretty good week so far.
