AM: Took the dog to the park so he could run some intervals. Walked around the neighborhood with Andy so he could hunt aluminum cans. Watched talking heads on TV drone on about the election. Ate blueberry pancakes that Abby made that were done perfectly on the outside but filled with runny batter on the inside. Vacuumed the house. Read my new favorite website/blog - Contemplated whether or not the Ute's move to the Pac 12 was a wise move or not. Cleaned up Abby's pancake mess because she's great at cooking but not so much into cleaning up. Took the kids to church.

PM: Niner around SHP in 68 minutes. Pretty warm and muggy. Came to a decision about my running for the rest of the year.

Big day so far and its only 10am!

Grantland is a great site... lots of fantastic sports "journalism" on there, w/ the Simmons' humor.

C'mon Rob, you can't say you made a big decision and then keep us in suspense!

From Jake K on Sun, Sep 23, 2012 at 17:14:03 from

For the record, I hope the decision is that you are dropping down to middle distance, and you and I are going to race an indoor 600m in mid-December.
