“You like me, you really like me”

I couldn’t help but steal this famous quote to mark this little milestone. For some odd reason over 1000 visits have been logged on this blog of mine and its a little mind boggling. I know it is no where near the thousands upon thousands of visits that you blog-veterans have logged, but I thought it would take me a lot longer then three months to have a 1000 visits. So thank you all for stopping by and taking a few minutes to read my ramblings about my training, life, and whatever else I’ll come up with in the future. Thank you very much!

There was a light rain/misting action going on last night when I got home from work. Since I’m trying to be smart and stay out of the pool to give my shoulder a rest I was planning on running after work. The rain wasn’t too heavy, but there it was pretty windy. After debating with myself for a few minutes I geared up and headed out the door. It actually wasn’t that bad out and the rain had let up with a bit of mist remaining during the second half of my 6 mile run. My body was a little stiff and stubborn during the first mile or so, but after that it loosened up and it left good to be just out there running. After the run it was some ab work so I can tack another point on the “Make it Happen” chart or good behavior list as some people have adopted it. Tonight it will be a group session with the combo bike/run repeats. Which is always a pretty fun workout or at least I think so. Hopefully it's nice and sunny where you are because there is nothing but fog here in the Twin Cities. Have a great day...

The previous meetings do paint a very nice picture for your little blue men. Now I'm not going to disagree that the chances of MN winning are somewhat low, but I don't think I'll just keel over. Ya see there is this known phenomenon in the sports world known as the three-peat. This event is rarely seen and has been the demise of so many arrogant, egotistical, looking ahead to the next game teams so lets just hope that your little blue men don't make that mistake. Like I said before the odds are not good, but I wouldn't be so quick as to count your chickens yet little mousey, cause they aren't even close to hatching.

For a little mouse, you sure do talk big. You better watch out little mouse, because the big bad gophers are coming to town. If, by some chance of fate, Michigan does not totally blow their significant advantages and somehow loses to a weak MN squad, at least you will have one team that is better than ours. Notice I did not say sport cuz our women still rock your world!

OF COURSE we love you! Dare I list your wonderous attributes for the world to see?

1. You're a fantastic mentor
2. You do a lot for charity
3. You are a great looking guy
4. You're incredibly kind to others
5. You're a great athlete
6. You were actually excited when I said I was going to cheer you on at Pigman
7. Did I mention you're a great looking guy who should post more pictures?

Love you, man! Really!

Good job on the run despite the weather.

Ditto, Keryn! ;)

Congrats, Mike.

Surprisingly enough, it wasn't foggy in SF today. However it is 6:34 and yoga is underway and I am still at the office... DOLT!

Pretty much he is not that good looking. I took that photo of him and I have so much talent, it is sick.

Or maybe that was ego, I always forget. Anyway, he doesn't want me to tell anyone about the gallery I have on my site with a few more photos of him. Not many though because he runs from the camera - that is what motivates him to train I think.

Shadoweyes: Okay...I went to your site and looked at the photos...I beg to differ. He's very good looking. :)

Yeah, I actually keep trying to tell him that, but he doesn't listen to me.

And I really wish he would start dating often so I could have the place to myself every once and awhile. Seriously

Tell him to move to Omaha. I know TWO very attractive, very intelligent young ladies who think he's "hot." :)

Ummm ... two? Dang, you do know that we are a package deal, right?

Mitchell, you are shameless. Really.

Walchka, I like your idea of holding yourself accountable for addressing your weakness and creating an indicator table for motivation--that could come in useful for all sorts of challenges, not just endurance training.
