ok i lied

i received a call from my roommate Tange, all the way from the Orlando area.

We lived together a few years at Central and he was a sub 3 hr marathoner back then and occasional tri-athlete.

i smoked and drank too much, why were we roommates?????

funny how life works that way but Tange had(s) a heart of gold and he called just to wish me well, and check on my training. We haven't actually seen each other in almost 10 years...the magic of the internet.

So thanks Mr Gore for inventing it.....

Which brings me to another issue....after the marathon i can get back to political satire. Thank Gawd, like Barb and Mike, if mike looks at this once in a while, like to hear about bad Detroit news in their Chicago digs?????

Who are Barb and Mike, wellll, what blogs are you stalking then???? But thanks for the encouragement

Also, a shout out to the Hitman...Brett, who also wanted to call and wish me luck. Thanks buddy. If Nitmos and i can talk one more Steer into running again, we may have a relay team for some serious distance stuff.

Just think, ..... Canadian Death Race Relay Team named Steers, a castrated bovine....with Tange, King, Hitman, Nitmos and Luki, anyway back to reality......

Post race report to come soon.....

Thanks for reading

I am up for the CDR. No kidding. Get us a couple of hill runners and I'm there.

No luck on the "other Steer". The running shoes have been put away again.
