Becky, Steve, Davo, Woody, Maureen, Dan, and I answered the call. Elaine and LunaLou were out there too, but you know the Luna Chicks, they were doing their own thing.
The run was fun for 13 miles, but the last three, well, they got to me. I am gonna work through it because already I see progress. My 12 milers have been hard, and this didn't get too hard till one mile longer than that, and I'm out of shape. Soon I'll be able to run Croom Mountain! Then on to Cali for a shot a Western States, woo who!

Don't know how many are coming out, but I can't wait. I have more than my share of demons to exorcise (or is that exercise, I guess that depends on who comes out :)
I can say goodbye to: Foot injuries
Goodbye to: Burning Western Woods!
Goodbye to: Leadville, yuck!

Oh, it's a White Christmas for me though, I'm going to Sarasota (old people do NOT live in Sarasota, but their parents do!) so I'll see plenty of white (and a few shades of Blue) in the hair of the residents.
Ok, there's two reasons why it's Chase Hell
Now Reasons 3-6, I'm off to the movies (Chase HATES the movie theatre, and doesn't really like movies much, except Cloverfield, and that wasn't so much a movie as it was a silly joke played by a dude with a camera, I went and saw that one and the producer actually sent me a note that simply said, "Gotcha!"). Why is that 4 reasons? I'm buying the all day pass!
Here's the line-up:
11:10: Doubt- Meryl Streep as a nun that runs the catholic school system in New York, Phillip Seymour Hoffman is a popular priest that Streep thinks may have Father Doyled (screwed) some young person. Chase went to Catholic school and the only boobs we are likely to see are the MOOBS of Hoffman, strikes one-two-and and emphatic-THREE, for Chase.
1:10- Frost/Nixon. Got great reviews, but as Chase was a small boy and there are not likely to be boobs in this, I can't imagine Chase'd like it.3:30- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Brad Pitt lives his life backwards, he starts as an old man and dies as a child. Doesn't intrigue me so much, but the timing is right and there is a chance of seeing boobs.
5:30- Either Bedtime Stories w/Adam Sandler or 4 Christmases with Vince Vaugh and that actress that killed somebody with her knife, that Reese...... come on you know her that Reese... Jeez, I can't believe that I can't think of it, it's Reese...... ...what is it...... No I already told you WITH A KNIFE! Get it, you were yelling at the computer Witherspoon (With Her Spoon) and I said up there she did it, with her knife (Make clever joke reason #7 for Chase's Christmas Hell!) With her knife, Gawd, but that's funny!
I know what you are thinking why am I quitting at 4 movies (I mean the pass is good for all day) well, from there I guess I cruise by Ali's house and do a little bit of Christmas. Ali's mom and step dad are great people, but I'll only be able to handle a little. Even though it used to be my house, I don't belong. I guess there's only place I belong this Christmas that's with Sean Penn, and Will Smith (oh Christ, there are two more I should have worked in! Well there's always New Years Eve.......)

that I'm so lame
I can't get into the game
I don't even know if it's a shame
Ran today with me (I'd say with Davo, but that was for like 8 seconds)
Run was much better than last Wednesday but not good enough to make me want to do it again. What I need is a good run with Star or Maybe the good Doctor. Better than all of that would be a hike with that someone special. Now that would be fun. Bring a picnic lunch, ahh, I think I could do that. But that doesn't do crap to decide about Western States.
Wait, it's decided, I'm doing States. The indecision, it just stopped, did you see that? Well, of course you didn't, only I could physically see it. Ok, Croom alone tomorrow unless anyone wants to go.

But today there was walking at the Mall, my favorite, I love the Mall (like a duck loves a June Bug that is, I see it and I want to destroy it. My great friend Steve Davis and I often used to talk about what store and department would go in first if we had 1/2 hour, a baseball bat and immunity. He was going for crystal and china, it was TV's all the way for me.) Regardless, mall walking is good exercise. Tomorrow will be even more exercise, I'm taking Ali-Cat to the most magical place on earth, well, EPCOT anyway. Last time I went to EPCOT, I'm pretty sure I was running the Disney Marathon, this won't be that much exercise, but it'll be enough.
so, it'll be at least Tuesday before I can run, then I have to make it part of my routine again, jeez, I don't want to lay an egg at Western States. Really want some type of a buckle, Sliver is probably out of reach, but hey, I've already got one of those anyway. Bronze could be cool.

Now, all I want for Christmas is..... for Ali to do well and enjoy school.... BAM! Kid's got straight A's. On her semester exams, low score was a 92, and two 100's! Wow. I'm taking her for whatever she wants!
Now, all I want for Christmas is.... well, I'm keeping that one to myself, but lets just say that one is covered better than ever! How I got sew lucky eye dew knot no!
Guys, I guess I just want you all to have a Merry Holiday Season. That's what I want...
Oh, and revenge against my enemies, I always leave that one out, Santa is it too late? You fill in the blank: All I want for Christmas is ______________________!

Ouch my foot hurts, feel sorry for me. Looking back it was whining and I'm sorry I did it.
So what? When I look back so what? I put a year of my life into the slam and I failed. I failed my body and my body failed me. It hurt, it hurt a lot. I shared, and yeah, I guess I whined.
My good friend Cindi, she has now survived breast cancer for 7 years. She in now a cancer survivor. She's also's been fighting ovarian cancer for 2 years now. She will never run 100 miles. She just wants to get into remission.
My good friend Greg just had 40% of one of his lungs removed. He developed tumors in one of his lungs while he was serving in our military over in Iraq. Greg wants to run Western States in 2010, and I'll be damned if I won't do everything I can to help him accomplish that goal.
Use your time wisely, try new things, love things besides work and money and stuff.
Sometimes you have to step back before you can see. I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.

I ran 5 miles on Sunday and my foot held up.
I ran 5 miles on Sunday and my foot held up; and my foot isn't hurting today.
I ran 5 miles on Sunday and my foot held up; and my foot isn't hurting today; and I have been exercising my foot today and it still isn't hurting.
Look out world, I'm almost ready to re-emerge! Oh Hell Yeah!

I had to vote for him, he's with the Party Party!
He'll lower taxes, he'll get us out of war. He WON'T build a wall between the US and Mexico (what are some of these candidates 11?) He's El Vez. Live hard, die young and leave a good lookin' corpse. He's the man!

I reckon my bro, what a good guy, has roped me into doing this again, arg! But, I definitely encourage you to contact me, or my bro to set up a mock post. AndyManMathews@aol.com. If you wanna host and you get away it, you win a beer, not a glass of wine, no starbucks, but a beer, and ask Chase, when I lose a bet I won't cheat you out of it (Chase, really, I owe you, I haven't cheated you yet!)
Yoikes! Well, he ran much better than he did last week, but like the definition itself, the PR plum alluded him!
3 weeks from today I hope to be running again (don't freak Candi, it's just a target date, not an absolute.) Until then I've got plans to do a full post on texting, Ali went to Homecoming and I have pictures from that. We have districts in two weeks for Cross Country, I'll keep you posted and you guys can keep me entertained!

I like to Race Smartcars on my Smartboard.
I have many many tokens with which to race:
Turtle, Yellow Smart Car, Pink Smart Car, Rabbit, snail, racecar (oops, I spelled it backwards!), Carl Crawford, Indiana Jones, Tugboat, cheetah. Well, I guess that's about all the game pieces one needs. If you're ever over on North Rome Ave, I challenge you to a Smart Car race! I get the yellow one!
