Been away from the Cafe for awhile. Moved, new job, and trained for the San Diego Rock-n-Roll Marathon. I'm too old for this kind of thing, but finished yesterdays race in 4 hours, 41 minutes, and 52 seconds.
It was an awesome experience, though I can barely walk or even stand today.
Yo, Met... thanks for the sig! GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice job bud. My boss is planning to run a marathon (or maybe a half-marathon, I wasn't paying attention) this summer. Personally I couldn't do it even if I wanted to with my bum knee, but even without the bum knee I wouldn't attempt it because I am too lazy. Good on you though!
Way to go NFL! Was this your first? If so, I wouldn't be surprised. For some reason when people hit their 40s, a lot of them want to run marathons - at least 5 of the people I met in the last few years. I'm not sure if you are that old, yet but I'm still VERY impressed with your dedication to get this done.
So I haven't worked out for like a year and can't brag about any athletic achievements these days, but I did just buy my first new car in 11 years. I replaced my 2000 Mustang Convertible with a 2011 Toyota Highlander. That's one expensive automotive machine, but it actually rides smooth like a Lincoln. You can't even feel the small bumps. And we got DVDs in the headrests for the kids. They love them and they will come in handy when we move to Fort Leavenworth, KS this summer. It's also got Voice activated Navigation, Bluetooth, backup camera, leather heated seats, dual climate control, rear climate control, 3rd row seating, and a moonroof. Plus, it came with this hot chick!
actually - that's my wife, so be kind fellas

I survived my first year of school and did quite well for the year (3.11 gpa) and I just hit the one year mark on my current job. I'm doin something well so far. Grats on the marathon NFL. That's some grit right there.
