Luckily, he got back in our good graces by running a PR of 1:22:32 at the Five Points of Life Half Marathon.  Congratulations on a job well done Mr. England.

Mountain-dew

So, despite not getting much sleep I woke up today on time and looking foward to master swim.  I drank my 4:45 cup of coffee and headed out for my two mile commute there.  When I arrived, however, I was told that the pool was broken.  Hmm…broken.  Okay.  Fine.  With that I turned around and ...
