I was quite impressed by the crowd that greeted me when I arrived at Rec Hall today---until  I realized that most of them had been lured in by the free wrestling camp Gatorade and then been unable to make their get-away when they got stuck to the Gatorade coated floor.  Once everyone was set free, we (which included Jim Moore, Bob Cornwall, Matt Soccio, Joel Niemann, Costas Maranas, Andrew Webb, Libby Covelli, Mark Traband, George Lesieutre, Tom Cali, Jonathan Thurley, and Rob Shaver) set out for Sparks Street--the L O N G way.  Several people (Costas) complained that they were already too tired for hills by the time we finally said hillo to our featured hill.  Several others said goodbye at that point--including Traband and Lesieutre.  Mark wanted to work on his farmer's tan some more--and Sparks St. was just too dang shady!  As for George, after doing 50 at fifty, I guess he just doesn't feel the need to prove himself anymore.   However, Jim Myers and Mark Lee met us at the hill to make up for our defectors.  Jim had already done two by the time we arrived, and couldn't wait to do more.  We did the "Four is More" workout today--since four was more than any of us really wanted to do (except Myers, who did six, and Webb, who did "five and a huff").   On the way back to Rec Hall, we ran into Ann Skulas-Ray, who has been missed since going on the DL.  Sounds like she got shafted when they were handing out sesamoid bones, which makes it difficult to run very far without getting injured.  Of course, if anyone can come up with a cure for sesamoid deficiency, it's Ann!

Anyway--nice work today guys.  I think you all earned a trip to Long John Silver's!  I hear it's the recovery food of choice for men of a certain age.....
