Hey Coach!!! I have a lot of catching up to do. I need to go back and read how your Boston Marathon was. I still need to read about Rhett's big 50k or 50 miler back in Jan. or Feb. I've been unbelievably busy for such a long time.
I hope you're doing well.

Hey Addison, good to hear from you! My Boston was not a banner year for me. The weather was really bad this year!

Hey Coach, from what I've been reading about this year's Boston marathon, I don't think it was a banner year for 99.9 percent of the runners. But hey, you still made it there and that's definitely a positive. I'll get there soon enough.
