Best Boy In The World


That's right Jason, I'm talking about you.

Poor guy has been best friends with icey dixie cups and ice baths and our wood floor the past two days. He missed yesterdays run and will be missing todays as well. Yet I know better than to keep asking him if he'll be ok on Sunday. That's because I know he'll be next to me toeing the line (I use "toeing the line" loosely and we will be "toeing the line which is 1/4 mile behind the actual line"). I know he'll stay with me during the course because he is one of the toughest people I know (I also know this becuause the back is getting a lot better). I was asked earlier what would happen if he had to slow down in the race or step out of it completly. I also love that we understand that although we run together it is our own races on Sunday. If something happens to either one of us the other is not expected to wait around for them. But it's good to put that on "paper" for both of us to remember.


He has been there for me and gone along with my crazy running/working/commuting/eating/reading/writing/"the future" plans. I don't know how he does it as every day he'll hear, "JASON I know what we should do when we grow up.......LET'S WRITE A BOOK" "Let's write a book" has many variations ranging from opening bars and restaurants to moving to mexico and working in a bar or restaurant. Thank you for only looking at me like I'm crazy when I turn my back.

You are what every person should get to have by their side as they move forward in this life. So thank you for beliving in me and standing by my side when I feel like I won't succeed or that I am standing along.

Thank you for letting me post these ridiculous pictures of you and your Afternoon Ice Bath Adventure. ;-)

Great R-rated snapshots of Jason! Perfect for a spread in Runners World!!

You guys are both going to have a great race, and I can't wait to hear about it.

R-rated? No, no, no...I'm wearing a flesh-toned unitard.

Poor, poor Jason!! The humanity in the picture. Poor, poor Jason! I feel for you. I would not let my husband do that to me or the couch would be his bed for a week.
