It's been nearly a year since I last posted on this thing...ooops. So I am going to see if I can be a little better and aim for a monthly update at least.

As for the past year. Still in Michigan, working at Playmakers, running off-and-on, and moving towards making some changes in the next 6 months. I feel like I've been spinning my wheels long enough, and I am anxious to actually experience some movement. The running form clinics have been great, but I am getting really excited to go back to school, get a masters, and start teaching asap. How that will all play out is in the works, but the giant-indiana-jones-booby-trap-ball has been set in motion so its going to take some serious explosives to slow it down.

Caroline is growing into herself. She's a very verbal person with a crazy imagination and a passion for pretending. She's incredible with learning song lyrics and singing along, and this talent spills over into movie quotes and characters as well. She's awesome.

I promise to improve on my postings and I hope good fortune is finding you. ...and when it finds you let me know cause I'm going to kidnap it and hold it hostage.

Just got home from SLC. Had a great time seeing friends and family. (I'll post some pics later)Ran a crazy 'Road Mile' that wasn't really on the road and got hailed/poured on and experienced my first numb hands of the season.

My big news this week is that Todd and I are moving out of the house and into an apartment, and next Caroline and Joanne arrive. I talked to Caroline last night on the phone and she said she's looking forward to "snuggling", and I have to admit, so am I.

Also, I added my roommates Best Man 'speech' to my list of youtube links...its funny even if you don't know him.

I can't believe its already August. Time is flying by...the Olympics open in five days! Since I last posted I have been to Salt Lake for a 10k, and Charlevoix, MI for a Mile. The 10k shredded my feet with blisters but went well considering it was 10,000 meters of running. I had plans be in Halifax today for another Mile race but when I arrived at the airport yesterday they had cancelled the flights and weren't able to get me there in time for the race today. That is the first time in my life where a trip just didn't even happen at all.

Other big news is that Joanne and Caroline are moving back to Michigan. It will make for some changes and adjustments but all very worth it. Also, I am almost for sure now, the assistant XC coach at Okemos High School. I am really excited to put some of my coaching ideas into use, and I think the kids will have a good time with it.

If anybody does Facebook and I haven't found you yet let me know and we can 'be friends'.

New Pics

Here are some pics from just last week when I stopped in NJ to see Caroline.

I put a bunch in my Picassa album and the link is in the upper-right corner of the blog.

I squeeked into the trials and I am off to Eugene tomorrow morning. I have had zero time to upload photos but when I do it will be big-time! For the trials, the USATF webpage pretty much has everything on it that you need for information:

For viewing the races, here are some other online suggestions: (which also has the full video from the Harry Jerome meet in Vancouver last Saturday)

Also this is a good spot for results and other track nerdliness:

Keep me in your thoughts. Here goes nothing...
