      Marathon is in 4 weeks, Oct. 25th, Trevor. It's 3:41 am and that little pill did nothing to help me sleep. Woe up every hour and have been awake since 2. Maybe it wasn't a good idea to do a night shift Friday. I can be so stupid sometimes. Too often for my own good. LOL :+D

      Breaststroke really? I wonder if the air pressure changes from the flight messed up your tires.

      And those beds are hard as rock! I think they forgot to put mattresses on them and just put a box spring over a box spring. Still slept well when I did sleep and no aches and pains. :+)
