On the treadmill at 8.4 mph.

Had a nice birthday dinner for Abby last night at a Japanese steak house up in Clearfield with Steve Anderson and his girls. It's so much fun watching kids at those places with the onion volcanos, egg juggling, and launching shrimp into your mouth.

Taking Andy up to story time at the King's English bookshop now.

Oh yeah... my running. I'm starting to feel good and ready to ease back into some serious training. Started to feel a nice, zippy stride the last couple days. I've pretty much decided that I'm going to look at Paul Peterson's blog from last year from before Boston and copy everything he did. Only adjust everything slower for an old guy.

I'm really hoping for a sub - 2:40 at Boston. With any luck, the conditions will be identical to last year.

Copying Paul is always a good idea.

Humm, Boston. Maybe next year when I'm an old guy too.
