stuff ’round the mill
“If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don’t spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it.” – Priscilla Welch
I recently went into Ready Set Run on a Thursday night when my daughter works there and bought some socks. The socks have an L on one sock and an R on the other. Lisa explained that was so I will get each sock on the proper foot. So now how come some days my L foot is on my port side while on other days my L foot is on my starboard side? I must be doin’ sumthin’ wrong the way I’m gettin’ outta bed….
FROM BRETT JENNER – I’m preparing for my first trip to Australia and will be competing in the www.ironmanmelbourne.com race on March 24th.
All the best,
PS: My goal is to break my old PR of 10:49 set at Ironman Germany. Wish me luck!
IRONMAN Melbourne, Victoria – March 24, 2013 3.8 km swim / 180 km bike / 42.2 km run

RICK PRILL has been seen running with a new training partner. His last partner slowly increased her speed until he found himself a day or two behind her on most training runs. It was noted Saturday Rick is keeping this partner on a very short leash, Rick’s no dummy he’s learned. Remember Rick, if the lease is taught you only get credit for half the mileage; the lease must be dangling!
