Deep Fried!

Yes, I know it has been over a week since I last blogged. I have been busy, busy, busy.
Not that I want any sympathy, it came down to choices and writing my blog came in last.

1st. I have been running, nothing to brag about, just runs, mostly in Mohican. I hope to incorporate some long runs into my training soon.

2nd Track consumed most of my time last week. A tri-meet on April 22 which the girls won handily, worked the Jr. High meet on April 24, went to Elgin Relays on the west side of Marion, Ohio and got home after midnight, and finally hosted our own Mohican Elite Track meet.
Our girls came in 14th overall, but that's not bad considering some of the best teams in the state are at this meet. We placed thanks to Tori Mowery our high jumper who cleared 4 feet 10 inches for 4th place. That's her in the photo 'I'm Cool!'.

3rd. I took this cute photo of my wife Betty wearing a neat little granny cap. Every time she wears the cap it makes me smile. She can be found sporting the cap when the dreaded lady bugs are on the attack. Not only is the cap on, but it includes cotton in the ears, coat covering the arms, neck, and body. The poor gal has had her problems with severe migraines and trigeminal neuralgia. At least one migraine per week. The Cleveland Clinic is working on getting them under control.

4th. Mohican 50 mile race has also been a bit too active. I have laid out the course and measured it once. I still have portions to measure a second time. If current measurements hold it should be 50.34 miles. The map is done and the purple loop will be had by them.
Need to do the course description, aid station/elevation information, and directions for support crews. Then I am done with the 2008 Mohican.

So that's what I have been up to. Hope to post more often.

Man, it sure would be nice if you would do something. You know you are retired and all.
