Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Up early to get the run in before church. Same course as most of the runs but my furthest out to date. Saw the armadillo again also saw the Great Blue Heron after a couple weeks of it being missing in action. Nothing special with pace but it get even hillier the further I get from my house. So that there are two miles with 300 ft climbs.

Hi Allie,

Thank you for checking in. Congratulations on the awesome TOU! I so wish I was there with you all. My daughter even commented this week that I need a 4th moose. She had no idea that the race had just happened. Hopefully I'll be able to make it back for a visit.

you should definitely go for the 4th moose someday. it's always fun figuring out where to put those things. :)

From Adam RW on Sun, Oct 06, 2013 at 12:53:55 from

My daughter's point is I have 4th, 3rd, and 2nd. My two daughters and my wife. I need to get a 1st to join the family :)
