I forgot to say this before, so I'll say it now

I am not completely certain about this, but certain enough to put it in print for all to read. I belive that exactly a year ago on September 13, 2008, Kari and I decided to run the Paris Marathon. How great it was that exactly a year later, September 13, 2009, I ran my second marathon. I never thought that I'd run even one marathon in my life - and I ran two in 6 months.  Isn't that cool????

Now, off to shed my extra pounds, too. If there is one thing I have learned during the past year it's that Kari and I pretty much do everything together - that apparently means gain kilos, too. Lots of work to do.


  1. That is cool! 9 and 13 are your new lucky numbers so go play lotto and WIN :)

    Perhaps the three of us should embark on a 1 month poundage-shedding challenge? And blog about our progress? Having a goal would probably help with my daily lard consumption.

  2. I'm GAME!!!! (I'm putting the peanut butter cup back as I type) I only want to speak of PLUS or NEGATIVE pounds - not weights, of course. We can blog about our techniques and 'best practices" (however practical or impractical they may be.) I'll start right NOW.

  3. SWEET! I'll start on Saturday. No time to grocery shop so until then I'll be having several lasts suppers and then GAME ON!

  4. Kari are you in or what? We need The Svelt one to show us the way!
