Happy Birthday Baby!

Today is Brent's 29th birthday. WOW! It's been a long and crazy road, full of lots of left AND right turns, hills and valleys and sheer adventure. Ten years ago we were celebrating his 19th birthday as college freshman, and here were are in 2006 still partying like kids. I can't imagine spending the last 10.5 years of my life with anyone else? Who else would put up with my massive mood swings? Who else would blame my mother (instead of me) for not teaching me that Joy does not work so well in the dishwasher? Who else would drop everything and run out of work to pick me up when my stomach was cramping and I was still a mile and a half from home? I can't imagine some other guy enjoying my insane dancing, terrible knowledge of song lyrics and random firings of hairspray. There's no way Pippin would want to curl up with some other bozo on the couch.

So - to my friend, my sweetie, the best baby doggie's daddy and my favorite running pal in the world - Happy 29th birthday!! I hope it's the best ever. Here's a look back at some of the fun times we've had (at least since we got a digital camera).

Here's to another 290 years together.....

Happy
happy birthday in a hot bath
To those nice
nice nights.
I remember always
always I got such a fright.
Seeing them in my dark cupboard with my great big cake.
If they were me
if they were me
And I was you and I was you -
If they were me and I was you
Would you have liked a present too.

Happy

I will toss in a mile from my speedwork rather than a mile of my normal walking pace.

I've got a 7.4 mile race tonight...I will definitely run at least one mile for Brent, and I'm willing to throw in the other 6.4 if necessary.

I'll let you know how I do, timewise!

Happy B-day Brent!

I ran "the Brent Mile" this morning. It was an all-out, no-holds-barred, happy birthday extravaganza. I clocked the mile at 6:19.

I ran wearing a "Brent Mile" bib.. I thought of the idea while I was sitting in the dentist chair this morning. Happy birthday Brent. Enjoy your day!
