    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

            Thanks Holly!  I'm sure you're running by now.  Have a good race and a great time!

              41 miles this week. Smile That is 11 weeks in a row and 16 weeks out of 17 that I hit 40. And since the NHL is locking out players and there aint no games to go to, I might just make this a habit over the winter.

              Philippians 4:13.

                Hey folks, I will be flying most of tomorrow, leaving Fairbanks tonight at 1:30am Alaska time and getting home tomorrow night probably around 8pm, so I will post this week's 40/40 on Tuesday morning.   Sorry for the late, but I keep it on my home computer.
