    No no no. 

I wouldn&#8217;t be able to eat for months if I had registered for all that. This is merely a fantasy list of things I WANT to do.

    I&#8217;m just gonna go out there and say that I want this. 

I&#8217;m into the multi-race things lately. I really want to do:

-Earn Your Mittens (Wisconsin and Kalamazoo Marathons back to back)

-Midwest Best (Rock n Roll races in Chicago, Cleveland, and St. Louis)

-a crazy concoction I came up with: Dopey Challenge in Orlando, followed by Star Wars 5k, 10k and half the next weekend in Cali

Anyone want to join?

    Flight delayed a few hours at midway.

    Boarded with no cello hassle (very rare).

    Drank a jack and diet.

    Landed in Denver minutes after my connection to Durango left.

    Got rebooked on the next flight. There is only one per day, so it’s not till 9pm tomorrow.

    In a hotel drinking beer. I ran a mile on the treadmill at midnight.

    Cray!
