Whiskey and 40 Pounds of Ice

Last year's Half-Iron race (my first): 6:34:45

This year's Half-Iron (first of three): 6:17:43

More later. For now, it's me, Glenlivet single malt scotch, a bathtub, and 40 pounds of ice.

And in another note, mylaw firm and Houston have both been sucking donkey balls with increasing frequency and intensity as time goes on. So, tomorrow, I'm going in and withdrawing from the firm and putting the house up for sale. We haven't got a plan, but I want to move somewhere cool like Bolder, Fort Collins, Seattle, Ogden, . . . . I don't know. Anywhere you can actually ride a bike.

If anyone needs a law nerd, let me know. I'm your guy.

Wow, you almost had me going there. I thought, for one nano second, that we may be blessed with your permanent presence in Ogden. Wow, what a magical moment that was in my mind. However, I was quickly grounded by reality and my knowledge of all things sneaky/Greyhound. Not just a hat rack buddy.

I smell an April Fool's joke. I sure hope the half-iron time is not a joke though. Either way, nice job finishing the half-iron!
