Taking Chance

If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend the movie "Taking Chance" (an HBO presentation). It's based on the true story of Lt. Colonel Michael Strobl, USMC, who escorted the body of 19-year old Lance Corporal Chance Phelps back home after he was killed in Iraq. Regardless of your feelings about the war, our military personnel deserve our respect and support. This truly is a movie worth watching.

If You Have to Ask Why, You'll Never Understand

Games require skill. Running requires endurance, character, pride, physical strength, and mental toughness. Running is a test, not a game. A test of faith, belief, will, and trust in ones self. So hardcore that it needs a category all to itself to define the pain. When game players criticize, it's because they aren't willing to understand, not because they're stronger. Running is more than a sport; it's a lifestyle. If you have to ask us why we run, you'll never understand, so just accept. (Author Unknown)

Goodbye to a Dear Friend

After 20 years of unconditional love and companionship, we said goodbye to our old man, Fatso. I will miss you, my heater hog and dance partner. Thank you for 20 wonderful years.

Goal-less and Floundering

It's official. I hate having my next goal so far out (SOB in July). What's the point in getting up at those gad awful hours?

Stop whining, Les, and get your butt out there!

*sigh* That didn't work.
