AM: 8.5 miles in 60 minutes. 6 x 100 meter striders I signed up for the Hobbler Half Marathon next Saturday even though I don't really want to run it. Want to know why I decided to run it? Because I envisioned myself reading the race reports of all the smokin' fast times on that downhill course and being really cranky at myself for not doing it. So Spongebob, Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs are locked inside the Krusty Krab... Mr. Krabs: I've been working in this place for 20 years, and I know there's only one way outta here. Patrick: A high school diploma? I love Summer! Ann's sleeping right now after working a 13 hour shift last night. I'm getting ready to take the kids to the park.

Why, when I went to edit this post, did the thing insist on consolidating my previous entry into one paragraph?

PM: 8.5 miles on the treadmill at Steiner watching Sports Center.
