Off Topic

Well, this is mostly a blog about running, but I have to say that I'm inexplicably excited about the return of one of Seattle's most prolific athletes, if not THE most prolific. That's right. Ken Griffey Jr. is coming back to the Mariners. I'm not even a big baseball fan, but as a kid playing Little League I was a huge fan of Griffey, and his return, 20 years after he first came up with the organization, has rekindled some of those youthful memories from my past. Sure he's old and way past his prime, but it's neat to see a great player come back and finish their career with the organization they began with. I think it's great for Seattle sports, because outside of some phenomenal running performances, there hasn't been much to get excited about.

Agreed. I'm a HUGE mariner fan and agree that Grif is well past his prime but think it is awesome that he is coming home to close out his career. I'll definitely be up to catch some games this summer.
