Nice run! Sad she's got to go soon. Glad your weather is better! I had 42 degrees myself today: tights, long sleeve shirt with it pulled up to my elbows, took my gloves and hat off, and my jacket wrapped around my waist. Definitely not what I expected.

Hey, do you live anywhere near San Antonio? I'll be there in early April for a school board conference, would be fun to go for a run if you're anywhere nearby.

Russ,

I do live close to SA. Let's make a plan to get together. When you know the exact dates and times let me know!

From Russ on Sun, Jan 07, 2018 at 16:49:27 from 67.138.48.135

Sweet! I fly in Friday 4/6 at 3 pm and fly out Tues 4/10 at 8 am. I donít know my schedule yet, but Iím sure we can find a time in there for a nice run! Will be awesome.

Looks like you are going to have a great running year IJR.

From Tom Slick on Mon, Jan 08, 2018 at 11:23:06 from 173.117.231.250

IJR - Which marathons are you and Callie going to compete in to get a 2019 Boston qualification?

From Dan on Mon, Jan 08, 2018 at 18:44:02 from 74.140.172.126

Looking good man -you have to be loving running with your daughter so much lately.

From I Just Run on Mon, Jan 08, 2018 at 21:57:22 from 199.38.187.9

Russ, We'll make some plans when it gets a little closer!

Thanks Rhett!

Dan, Yes I've really enjoyed it but now it's over. :-(

From Tom Slick on Tue, Jan 09, 2018 at 09:20:38 from 173.117.242.204

IJR - She will be back!
