More on Monday

About 8 miles from the end, Pete remarked about how good  a Coke sounded right now.  About a mile later, he pulled off the trail.  It seemed like an unusual pit stop for Pete.  He dug around the base of a pine tree and pulled out an unopened can of Coke.  He had stashed it the night before.  What a great guy.

Yesterday, Pete and I did a 50K on the Ice Age Trail.
Started at his house, ran out 15.5 miles and returned to his house.
Very difficult.

You guys look great for being at mile 26.2...usually people look like they need a cot and some IV fluids.

Did Pete share his Coke. If he's any kind of friend, he at least offered a little sipsy.

I will send this link to all of the Coke managers I work with. They will get a kick out of it.

A Coke and a Smile. Next you will be teaching the world to sing, in perfect harmony.


Joel made me smile. I didn't want to.
Given my poor singing the world will be a much better place if I'm not the one teaching it to sing.

Of course I shared. I gave Joel the bottom third. You know, the backwash part.

You know, my favorite picture is probably the one with the flower. I can just see it now - Dad, an ultra-runner, in his scary sunglasses, Garmin watch, major running shoes, and a camel back, stopping to take a picture of a flower. It's pretty cute. :)

I can't believe you run that much EVERY week!
