On Task for Miami

Thursday I went up to the track for a 4 x 1 mile workout. Last week I was all souped up and did my repeats at an 8:00/M pace. This week, with a niggling pain high on the inside of my left ankle, I only managed to do 8:30/M repeats. I thought I'd done well and was taken aback when I went to record my times and saw how I had blistered it last week. Hey, it's only training. I'll live with it.
. . . . . . . . .
And for those having to endure winter cloud cover let me tell you that the full moon is up there; which always reminds me of Grove Dock in the summertime.
. . . . . . . . .
Three are true. Two are false.
1. My dad is a priest. True - My dad is an Episcopalian priest which makes me a PK which I used liberally as my excuse for rebel behaviour in my youth; which is not to say my youth is over or that I am not still rebellious.
2. I immigrated with my family from Ireland. False - My dad immigrated from Wales at the age of 25.
3. I skipped fifth grade, with an IQ of 140.
4. I can wiggle my ears.
5. I attended seminary in Berkeley, Calif.

But David, that's only 1 & 2. What about 3, 4 & 5? End the suspense. Please.

while researching immigration policies for new zealand (they have a points system based on age, career, financial position, etc), i discovered that there are two professions that they waive the points for. doctors and ministers. i'm thinking of going to seminary so i can immigrate to nz when i retire. =)

I'm going to stretch the answers out a little. It's good for readership/circulation counts :)

Readership/circulation counts? Oh, no - not you. You're just a tease.

I'm good, I guess Wales too.

I actually know the two true ones, so I'll hush up with Finally Running... in other news, you are a training fool!
