Brief Intermission

Thanks to a series of 15-hour workdays (as well as a handful of gym members who claim that they are leaving the gym because of something that I allegedly did or--in some cases--didn't do), I have had no time to write at work and no energy to write at home. Besides which, I am entirely too busy watching Olympians being awesome to complete the latest installment in my "Stop Slouching!" series (which will be about weak hamstrings, by the way).

Also, I am flying to Boston tomorrow to help my friend drive to Arizona, where she has a job teaching 4th graders. So I will be in a car and therefore unable to update for the next week.

In the meantime, I invite you to join me by splurging (bowl of ice cream, anyone?) and pulling up a seat in front of the TV to watch the following events:

Women's 10,000 m final - Friday at 9:45 a.m. (all times are Central Time)
Women's marathon - Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Men's 10,000 m final - Sunday at 9:45 a.m.
Women's triathlon - Sunday at 9:00 p.m.
Men's triathlon - Monday at 9:00 p.m.

And I will be back to regale you with tales of weak hamstrings on Tuesday. Please try to stay out of trouble while I'm gone ;-).



  1. have fun and drive carefully.
    Im happy to oblige with the REECES KLONDIKES and some couch time..


  2. You came through Boston and didn't tell me. Minus 10 points.

    Drive safe!

  3. Wait? What did(n't) you do at the gym?! One time I threw a stability ball and hit a woman in the face. Another time I rammed a medicine ball into a chick's solar plexus as hard as I could (I thought her arms would be in front of the solar plexus). Is it worse than that?!

    Have a safe drive!

  4. I'm sorry you are having a tough time at work! Hang in there. But hey -- Boston! You are going to love Boston. I lived there until I was 13. Great city.
