For a minute I mistook the ll's on treadmill for exclamation points. I was thinking you were getting awfully excited about the mill.

It's really my only option today with my wife out of town. Plus my legs are feeling a little banged up and I want to spare them some pounding - so the treadmi!! it is.

I was simply trying to see if your recent accomplishments were getting any buzz and I happened upon this discussion about "the new Gerry Lindgren".

That's the price you pay for having such a googleable name.

I'm the ONLY person with this name in the USA. In fact, we are the only Krongs in the country as far as we know. Weird mixup at Ellis Island back in the day - 90% of the family became KronK, we became KronG.

I want to fly under the radar as long as possible. Hopefully that becomes impossible after Boston :-)
