AM: 4.25 easy miles in the neighborhood. Then a mile walk with Abby.

First day back at school. Summer's over. 

PM: 2 miles with Abby. 

I feel compelled to admit that as a runner and a coach I have a bit of a crush on Nick Symmonds. You know, in a purely athletic sense.

I could go on at length about the disciplined way he has gone about this season and his whole career for that matter and about how he has done everything to maximize his potential. A true professional.
