Very nice.

I haven't commented on your blog before, but have noticed it. Wishing right now that you had the 'nutrition/patience' lecture you gave your kids yesterday in a PDF format that you would be willing to share. :)

Amazing 200s.

Yes, teenagers have the worst personal habits and poor discipline when it comes to thinks like sleep and nutrition. Even when parents think their kids are eating right, they are often not. One of the hardest things for a coach is to get the kids to understand the connection between the fuel you put in your body and performance in key workouts and races.

Unfortunately, I was half talking about me. ;)
