Bri posted a nice update about our weekend with my family so you can read her stuff to cover that. I enjoyed the 5k on Sunday morning; it was humid but not scorching at 7AM. Splits were 6:15, 6:25, 6:30 and then a klick into the finish. I crossed the line 8th or 9th, but my bib number somehow got reversed or left out, and so I didn't get a top ten overall award.

We debated having me run up to the young race director and cause a big scene (YOU MESSED UP THE AWARDS MY WHOLE DAY IS RUINED YOU WHIPPERSNAPPER YOU WAAAHHH), perhaps knocking over a high school runner to take MY PLAQUE IT'S MINE YOU CAN'T HAVE IT I WON IT GIVE IT TO ME LOSER!!! that I duly deserved, but decided against this in order to go have a nice quiet breakfast.

Tassie was happy to see us when we got home so that is nice.

The Wrightsville Beach Pier 2 Pier swim is this Saturday morning, followed by the Magnificent Mile on Sunday afternoon.

Marty Gaal you crack me up. I must say I think you should write a column, sports or otherwise in your local paper, and then become syndicated. Or better yet you write one and have Bri write her view. I really enjoy reading your blogs for various reason. The least of which is because you make me laugh! Dawn

Thanks Dawn. I would be happy to write a column and be syndicated but my literary agent has been totally slacking.
