I'm still training, I'm still cooking, I'm still PIC (Parent In Charge)!!!
I've been very busy. I haven't have any time to blog...as you can see. I wanted to take a few minutes to say I ran the buckeye half today 1:54:46. My PR is 1:52. Not a good day. It was rainy, I was tired...I could go on and on with other excesses but I'll stop there.

I've been working on a project some of you know about; I've been testing an energy bar calling PŪR Fuel. They were featured at the Buckeye 1/2 today and were a big hit. I got a lot of feedback and great commits. If you missed them today or want to buy more, you can purchase them at Vertical Runner. I'll post more about them later. I'm still working on some of the details and fine tuning. I can tell you they are delicious!!!

I'm still training for Akron...I am going to try to run just under 4 hours.
I'm also going to post more recipes for you on this blog and on my website www.playingwithknivesandfire.com.

Yeah...those energy bars are delicious!!!! I bought 3 right before you packed up....and I ate them all today (hey, I had an hour run this evening I needed to fuel up for). I'll be back for more.

All half mary finishes are big accomplishments in my book. Congrats!!

With all that was going on I didn't even get a chance to try them or buy any. I've got to run by VR and buy some more shoes (mine have 50 miles on them but are soaked). I figure I'll have two pairs and can alternate. I'll have to pick up some while I'm there for my camping trip this weekend.
