am: Two mile walk followed by some stretching and  breakfast on the couch in the basement with Abby while watching Sponge Bob. Oatmeal with strawberries..

pm: Great run after my second period class. Ambled over to the gully for the Gully Long Run in 49 minutes. Ran without a shirt in November! Nice Vitamin D boost.

Sat in the sauna for 15 minutes after to sweat. Now I'm back at my desk feeling happy and content. Time now to focus on the societal and cultural changes of the 1840s

Hey Rob quick question, do you over pronate and what kind of shoes do you run in, especially for the race?
