    Just a quickie run before I need to pack and get on a plane today to celebrate my dad's 90th birthday. Wish it were longer. Oh- like the title says- pouring rain.

      I loved my Nike+ pod. It's what made me fall in love with data. 'cept the data wasn't very good- but it was motivational to see the mileage building up. It also got me injured as I was always trying to build more mileage and speed to make the numbers look better. I was but a young grashopper.

      Is "berkshires" another one of those euphemisms for body parts one would rather not mention (as in "He thinks the sun shines out of his berkshires")?

      Happy 90th to him. Sounds like he's got plenty more still ahead! I love hearing these stories as I work with folks who have not aged as well. Nice to know that there are some healthy nonagenarians out there!

      on the roads, I can run with pretty much anybody, whether it be a 12 min/mi or work hard and run 6:30 for a few miles. (except when I tried to run with Lagat a couple weeks ago and he was doing 5:30's- didn't last long). The trails speed-limit me. can't just run faster without killing myself.

      I get the same feeling (when biking and swimming at least). Body rises to the occasion. Must be heaven to be out of the heat! That alone would make me go faster, or reduce my HR, at least.
