Great run and great family event. I hope the family enjoys the concert. Your running is looking great.

I love Bon Jovi...and 10-mile pre-concert runs.

Hope you had fun, brother.

Hope you had fun at Bon Jovi, that would be a great concert.

Hey Jeff - yeah, it was a great show. Not sure what Bon Jovi's workout program is, but he's clearly doing something right. Quite fit for 49 years old.

Not saying I have a man crush on Bon Jovi or anything!

"Quite fit for 49 years old" I'm sure thats the way Ann and all the other drooling 40-something ladies in the crowd phrased it too, eh?
