Who's this "Jason" fellow

Alright, so I'll admit that it's been awhile since I posted on this site. I'm pretty sure it's been since Leah abandoned me for the Caribbean, but I'd rather not consult the archives to find out. Suffice to say, it's been awhile. But I really want to remedy that, even if only to make sure my name stays on the door.

Things that have changed since my last post...

* We've gone from high fives to fist bumps, thus reflecting our maturity
* The word "Zing!" is now a part of our lexicon
* Baseball season has started
* Leah's gotten even more beautiful (Awwwwwwwwww)

I've also run the Shamrock Shuffle, which I haven't really mentioned. I didn't have a particularly good race, crapping out between miles 2 and 3. Up until that point I was keeping pace with Leah, but when it started to get really hard I just sort of gave up. I just didn't care. What's up with that? I'm a little disappointed in myself, but my speedwork after the race was just fine, so I'm chalking it up to a bad day. In the end, I finished up with a 38:30 which matched my time the first time I ran this race (and I'm in a millions times better shape, so whatever).

So yeah, bad race.

But everything else has been good. The job is going well and the Cubs are getting better and we're all happy in our crappy, old apartment.

And so I conclude my post. Hopefully it won't be so long until my next.

I believe ur better half DID mention ur lackluster performance in the Shuffle, not that I could finish the course in under 2 hours.

I'm still in shock though...I thought you two were shorter.

Ok - I believe that *I* put zing on my blog before Leah used it... great, now I look like a biter. :)

It's nice to see that Dr. J is still alive. See u in May!

Bridgette and I have discussed that her use of Zing and my use of Zing are completely different. Think of my zing as an updated "Oh SNAP" expression.

Sorry your Shamrock wasn't as good as you would have liked.  I hope you are inspired to train hard this summer -- you'll have some great races this season.
