Congratulations Jamie and Blaine

First I have to send a shout out to my boys Jamie and Blaine. Why?

Well, Jamie, in addition to being an energizer bunny runner is a published author. I just sat down to a cup of coffee and the latest Marathon & Beyond to read Jamie's article on his first marathon experience at MDI. If you don't already subscribe to this magazine, do so, and in the meantime run out to Borders or Barnes and Nobles and pick up a copy. Great job Jamie and congratulations!

Why Blaine? Well, he ran a fantastic race at the Pisgah 50K September 9th finishing in 4:27 and 5th place overall. Congratulations to Blaine on a terrific first ultramarathon!

I took it easy today running 7:30/pace average over 5.5 miles of South Freeport's finest asphalt. Tomorrow I am heading out to run wicked windy and wet Bradbury Bruiser course with a couple of my L.L.Bean posse members who have pledged to run the race. Should be a good time taking some virgins out on the course. Also planning to run is my homey James Demer of VT 100 fame and a peep of his. Goin' to be a good time!

Thanks Stephen! Glad you liked it. The bashful side of me feels kind of embarrassed reading the story now, but I am also greatly honored they picked it.

Have fun this morning at Bradbury. I keep missing the runs there with everyone. Looking forward to seeing everyone Friday evening. Countdown to WS lottery is on!

Thanks for the shout out! It was a lot of fun. I hope that the run went well at Bradbury this morning. I got in a good 3.5 miler with my sister and a friend of hers at a blazing 10:36 pace. I can definitely still tell when I am running down hill...

Good luck on the lottery. What is the actual date for that?
