I have competition



No, not running competition.





I had the opportunity to attend Adrian Peterson's fundraising dinner with work last night. Of course, my wife gets a picture with him.





Sorry dude, she's taken! I don't care if you can rush over 200 yards in a game.

I bet I could smoke him any distance longer than........... 15 miles?

Hey Adam, I almost called you. We had two open spots next two us. I figured you only lived 5 minutes away. Did not want to put you in a hostile situation with your wife, though.

Sooo,

I am in Chicago all week for another sales drive. I am sitting on Lake Street in Oak Park as I write this, waiting for the stuff to start. It is going to be urban running this week. Maybe I can run downdownt and do some sky scraper climbing.

Can't believe Grandma's is this weekend. Don't worry everybody, this mild weather will break Friday night and it will be a sauna on Saturday.

I "have" to play golf on Friday again. Work. I suck at golf. Then I am sore. Boo hoo.

At least I won't be stuck behind a desk.

I need to get my butt in gear this week and next week so I can have a decent race at the Afton 50k. Hope to see many of you there. I will be there with Bells on (metaphorically speaking).

Less than 1 week until summer.

Afton 50 km COULD be cool and overcast this year.

We've had July 4th celebrations in the past where the day seemed cooler than a warm January.

I'll settle for cloud cover and a breeze, though . . . .

Seriously. Quit jinxing Grandma's. I'm trying to calm my nerves and you're not helping!

you guys need to suck it up. Grandma's would not be Grandma's without some nasty humidity.

the half should not matter. you get started early enough that you should be done before the heat takes its toll.

enjoy the bus ride up.

eat at Nokomis on the Lake. No runner brewer ale will be served, unless somone wants to cart it up for me (he will sell it)

I think you just jinxed Afton too.

Hard to worry about heat though when the gun goes off at 6:00 AM.
