Does It Get Any Better?

I'm feeling pretty damn good right now. Why? Well my training is going great. I logged another big weekend. I was slightly slower on my Mt. Si repeats Friday morning, but I ran 6 minutes faster on 12 peaks Saturday, and I was able to hammer the SRC group run Sunday morning. Now I'm enjoying a day off, at least off from running. Maybe I squeezed in a 30 minute sauna session with some push-ups and core work, but that's it. Otherwise it was a day of recuperation.

That's all well and good, but why am I in such a great mood. Well, for starters I was treated to dinner at the in-laws this evening. Now that may not sound all that great to some of you out there, but if you had Portuguese family you'd definitely understand. Portuguese food is the best, especially when you've been logging your biggest mileage of the season. Oh so good!

And for me the best part of the day hasn't even happened. If you can believe it, I'm still awake and it's nearly midnight. For those of you who know me, you understand how rare that is. There's really only one thing that would keep me up this late, especially in the midst of peak training. Any guesses? Yep, Pearl Jam is playing on the premiere of the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. Word is they will be playing songs (yes, plural), so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I can't wait!

Hey Sid, they only played one song, but it was pretty rockin'. It gets me super pumped for the new album, and there are rumors that they're actually going to play Seattle in September.

See you soon!

Glad I didn't come out on Sunday now so I didn't get hammered. Good to hear things are going so well right before Western. Shannon heard rumors that Pearl Jam was going to play at the Gorge in September; that'd be totally awesome. By the way, hows your rambunctious pup?

Hal, you don't need to worry about me anyway. I didn't make AJW's list of contenders.
