Happy Thanksgiving to all. I hope everyone’s enjoyed a little age segregated seating, gluttony and L-tryptophan induced napping. It was great to see so many of you out at the Turkey Trot – the Jack Rabbit training crew complete with coaches Shane & Ayodele, Larry & Larissa Lewis, Luis & Yvonne, Danny, Emily Ashton, Irrit, Elizabeth (in the death match with her sister), Camille, Sarah W. Gimpy Johanna, and many more. And thank you so much to all of you who’ve asked about my mom’s progress.

Great job today by Emily "Killer" Kindlon at the Philadelphia Marathon. She set a PR of 3:21 and ran a tough and disciplined race. That makes 3 marathons and 3 PRs in the last year. Strong showings from Ted from Jack Rabbit, Amy from Nike, and the pacing team of Terence, Blair and Sarah Conway.

The next time one of us complains about our aching legs or talks about what we can’t do, perhaps we should watch this video of Dexter Benjamin, who makes his living as a one-legged bike messenger.
Bill Goins made the quick turnaround from Kona, with a strong showing at the 70.3 World Championships. At age 48 and 200+ pounds, Bill finished in 4:45:33. After years of making it rough on everyone and dominating the Clydesdale (or "fat boy" as he calls it) division, Bill swears that this is the end of his competitive triathlon career.
If so, it’s great to see him go out with such a fine effort.
