Happy birthday and good work on a very sensible birthday run!

Thanks everyone.

Jason - I've always liked having October 1st as a birthday. I share it with "hall of famer Rod Carew", Julie Andrews, and former President Jimmy Carter who turned 91 today.

Bret - 51 miles or kilometers? That seems a bit excessive.

From Drew on Thu, Oct 01, 2015 at 19:33:58 from

Happy Birthday Rob - sounds like a great one.
