As I see gaggles of fresh-faced college grads walking around the campus of my (and now their) alma mater, I’m reminded that 16 years ago today I was one of them. Sixteen years.
While they can’t fathom it, these kids will be where I am before they know it. Like the blink of an eye. I know this to be a fact because it seems like just yesterday I was one of them.
Your feel-good video for this Smile Friday. One word: didgeridoo

incredible campaign in response to the epic douchebaggery of the brand’s ceo.

This campaign is genius, but that tagline kills me.
Added to my “to-do” list for the weekend.
The Boy is playing some very good baseball this season. Through three games, he’s batting .667 as my lead-off hitter. He hasn’t struck out once. In nine at-bats, he has six hits (four singles, two doubles). And he’s played two straight games as a catcher. It’s still too early to tell, but judging by his interest in the score book, he seems to really enjoy the sport.
Listen to this man’s voice. I could listen to him sing all day.
I have no idea if this is actually true, but I’m pretty sure it’s close to being accurate. Queen > anything today
Top 8 are Fitblrs. Go figure.
My Garmin Forerunner 210 arrived on Friday and after setting it up, I was able to take it for a test run last night. Everything worked like a champ.
I’m still in sort of a rehab mode and don’t officially start my half-marathon training until June, but I’m slowly easing back into the running.
The hardest part has been trying to slow way down. My long runs on Sunday are supposed to be 2 minutes slower than my race pace, which I want to be about 9:09. That pace would put me at a sub 2-hour half.
That means I need to do my long runs at an 11:09 pace. That’s a lot harder than I thought. I finally got my pace to where it needed to be by the third mile. I’ll get there.
