am--2.5 Nice run up from the school. 
 

pm--4 Ran to and from Sage's house to deliver a poster. Got to chat w/ Maggie on the way back.

Finished Coming into the Country by John McPhee. This one took a while, but the payoff was worth it. He's one of my favorite authors. He has the ability to make nearly anything fascinating.

am--5 BHNP whistle workout. I technically had the info for the pickups but didn't look and went into it like the kids. Most of the kids got some confidence from the run. That's always fun.

pm--4.5 SC Parkway in a slightly progressive fashion. Finished w/ the varsity boys. 
 

I finished a compelling read tonight--Matt Hart's Win at All Costs: Inside Nike Running and Its Culture of Deception. Crazy stuff. It's astonishing what people do for an edge.

pm--5.75 Barrel Roll traditional. Listened to some Van the Man. 
 

My son and I have also been reading a book at bedtime. It's called Life on Mars by Jennifer Brown. Decent read about a kid who's into space and has to deal w/ life problems like moving and the creepy guy next door.

I finished another book by John McPhee, The Headmaster. It's the story of the longtime head master of Deerfield Academy, Frank L. Boyden. Nice, quick read.
