AM: Push-ups, Sit-ups, core.

I'm having a lot of fun reading the new Tim Feriss book, Tools of Titans. It's a goldmine of useful tidbits that will especially appeal to folks in their 20s and 30s and older folks whose job it is to inspite and motivate.

My 27 year old nephew has had a really bad stroke and things don't look good at present. He is a very special young man. If you are the praying type you could remember Ryan Keller of Dunedin Florida. Also my sister Marni and my brother-in-law Paul and his sister Elizabeth and brother Sawyer.

PM: 5 miles, hills sprints in the gully, weights.
