The tanker truck I mentioned yesterday closed the Interstate for the evening rush too. Like an idiot, I forgot to check the traffic before leaving work. I guess assuming the accident would be cleaned up after 12 hours was a mistake. So I spent 90 minutes in the car again.

I did an easy 3 miles this morning, just to loosen me up for tonight’s mile repeats. My quads were really sore – probably from running down Davern Hill. I ran on the grass during the downhill portion, so that had to help a little. Can’t imagine what they’d feel like if I had stayed on the road.

“We” hired a new Chief Marketing Officer about 2 months ago. I have yet to talk to him – other than saying “hi” in the hallway. Keep in mind our entire department is probably only 15-20 people. Anyway, today’s his birthday. Someone brought in bagels and a card for the occasion. I thought it was interesting that everyone who signed the card (including me) basically just said “Happy Birthday” and signed their name. I guess it’s hard to add much more than that if you don’t know the person.

Oh yea, I was checking out the results from the Green Bay marathon. This is cool, but kind of scary too. Look at all the splits they provided. Plus a “Map of runner location.” I wonder how well it worked during the race. I don’t know the runner personally, but I “met” her husband during a marathon once. His goal was to beat his wife’s time from Grandma’s earlier in the year (3:03ish, I believe). He didn’t.

Wow...those are some even splits. Even if you don't know her, I'm impressed. I wanna do what she did.

I believe she's a moderator on one of the coolrunning boards. I didn't see her race report anywhere.
