Ran 8 instead of has not been that long since I ran a month of 10 milers up to 12 miles but have kept the long runs to 7 past couple of months or so...what is weird and disappointing is that I ran slow not fast. I am pooped out today. I have been adding weights and jumps past month plus quarter miles (only 2 a week though plus the 100 meter strides)...

Thought the coverage of IAAF championships was good. I saw more of it than the Olympics.

I bought the NBC coverage... (no cable) and will watch the reruns. Too busy to sit and watch tv. Only saw the mens 10 k so far.

I need to get back to some regular long road runs, however slow. Keep it up buddy.

I'm not that busy...I'm busy but I also have time too to watch seems I always missed the track stuff whatever it there is a Olympic channel that shows combination of Olympics past and current stuff like IAAF...I also stumbled across two Australian type running/track free email reports. I really fell behind on knowledge of the sport for 25 years.

It is hard to believe guys like Coe Ovett and Cram are geezers now. And the stuff Jim Ryun did is 50 years old now! I would love to drop Ryun and some of the guys from 25 years ago into some of these races.

What is keeping you so busy? What is keeping you so busy? Teaching and working on the house?

I don't even mind the heats...they kinda build up the drama. I'll flip on the channel and think it is live and it turns out it's 2012 or 2016 Olympics.

I'm busy with my house building a 250 SF addition) and trying to do some writing to satisfy my sabbatical requirements. Then, just life stuff. Taking care of Eli, etc.
Where is James right now?

He's in a new apartment...literally new. He's been busy this summer with basketball coaching and training and working at a gym. He's had a blast...he loves it so its not work...adv he needs to do a job he loves like this.

250 sf. Why does your 5,000 sf mansion need another room? We could use 250sf even with James out of the house.

School for him starts Aug 28th...they get out really early in May...kinda a short but nice school year.

I have not written on my story since Jan. In the mood to start back up and either make it a permanent story or finish it and go back and try to tune it up.
