When you are over 25 the whole mile per year thing isn't much fun (unless you race on your birthday). Happy birthday to you.

Fritz - I've been looking to reduce my carbon footprint. I'll exchange it for some cake.

Rob, I am convincing Clyde to follow this b-day plan from now on!

Dave - I was going to do 4.8 but that would have been a bit too extreme.
