Friends Who are Rocking

Chris Wedge, you are going to Boston!

Man, I know the name of that tune. Took me 1,2,3, ............ 16 tries before I qualified. Glad you could do it more quickly. Makes me want to run fast again, shoot, makes me want to run again!

Andrea "Star" Risi, you broke 6 hours at the 1/2 IM in Miami! I believe it took me 6 hours to do the 30 mile ride around San Antonio, and yeah, you went farther, faster, morer!

What do they have in common?

Them two had goals!
Chris had a goal, he made a plan and he rocked it.

Andrea had a goal, she even said it out loud. And then she trained. The GD bailed on her. I bailed on her, but she didn't need us, she did it all by her lonesome.

Congrats guys. I think I'll get me one of them goals....

...........And I had This much to spare! ..............

Because she is so much more beautiful than this picture shows. Inside and out.

I can't have goals; I don't play soccer.

Chase Squires said...

Gooooooaaaaaalllllllsssssss ...

... and speaking of which, Perfesser, you're going to run Ancient Oaks? You fool ... what kind of nut would run 29 loops in a 100 miler????

(oh yeah, I did it ... twice!)

Tell Stu and RayK and Matt and Jim and all the gang I said "hey" ...

I'll let the pic slide this time since I'm still in a SoBe mood.

Vielen Dank Andy and to all of you who said I could reach my sub-six goal. (Come to think of it, you said that more than once to me this year!!!). I looked at my "chicks don't quit" bracelet throughout the run :)

Sometimes it's important to say your goals outloud where you'll be held accountable (by your friends who'll kick your @$$ if you wuss out). And it's ALWAYS important to have goals...

ROCK ON!!!

I love that picture of Andrea! Plus look, she has five fingers up on one hand and none on the other, and she had 5 minutes to spare. See, I'm like a blogging genius.

As for my goals, soon, very soon.

Chase - I couldnt turn down a hunnert thats only 35 miles from home...besides, I only got to run like 6 loops on that course last year while pacing Andy...I hear it really starts to look nice after 20 or so.

Andy - I need a chicks don't quit bracelet.
