Five miles in 37 minures. Included 4 X 1/4 mile in 1:15 just to shake things up a bit.

Driving Abby home from swim practice tonight I saw a bumper sticker on the back of an extreme sport, rock climbing, snowboarding dude's car...

"Be Ye Not Half-Assed"

I got to get me one of those. Good advice in all realms of life.

Good luck in the Hobbler race Rob!

Thanks Bret. I decided that the key to solving my pre-race insomnia might be just pretending I don't have a race tomorrow. So I've been eating and drinking irresponsibly this evening.

We'll see how it goes! Steve Anderson is bunking here tonight. The race is about an hours drive and we have to be down there at 5 am. Why do we do this stuff on a perfectly good weekend?
