Nothing right now.

Keep on running.

Just read your two latest marathon reports. Looked like you BQ at MT. Lemon for 2020 Boston! Is Boston in your plan?

Anyway, good to see you're still running strong and well. Sure miss you and Doone. Please tell her we loved receiving your family Christmas card/letter. We think the world of you guys! :) Happy and healthy 2020 to you!

Hi Smooth, good to hear from you. I miss your running blog. Doone is so good at getting Christmas Cards out. She keeps me up to date on some of your FaceBook posts. Yes I ran a BQ but No I'm not running Boston this year. Are you?

From Smooth on Tue, Jan 14, 2020 at 13:07:11 from

No, I'm not running Boston. I haven't trained and am in no shape to BQ. I'm just trying to keep moving and halt the weight gain.

My brother-in-law, Gary, is running Boston which will be his 100th marathon.

He ran a 3:04 at CIM last month. He'll be 60 in May. He's retired for almost 2 years now. Moved back to Utah and been running marathons like no tomorrow. Did I mention that he donated one of his kidneys to Larry.

Gary is one of my running idols. It blows my mind what he can do especially at his age.
