AM: Best Buy loop. Awesome!

PM: 6.5 treadmill miles with a couple up tempo miles. After that, I went to Abby's swim practice and watched her for a while. When we god home, Ann had a huge pot of chili ready which was great because I was starved after my first double in a few decades. So I had chili and a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for dinner.

You know who else likes chili and beer? Quenton Cassidy.

Speaking of that, I'm going to try and get in touch with Mr. Parker and try to convince him to write another book. I want him to bring Quenton into the present struggling with advancing age and decrepitude.

I plan to relocate to Nederland, Colorado this summer so I can run Magnolia every day.
