Just wanted to say....

Congrats to Dad! I heard he killed the competition in his ultrathon. First in his age group I believe? Quite the accomplishment! Way to go Dad. For an old guy with a gimpy arm you sure are quite the athlete.

Congrats, Dad! That's awesome, amazing, really; I was wondering if you made it through alive. So is he comatose now?

P.S. Carly, I'm glad you posted 'cause now I know you're still fully intact. Sorry! Tick, tick, tick...

I heard a rumor that Dad has gotten himself into doping...

It has to be true no human man can do something like that. 3am drive 10-12 hrs, 5 hrs of sleep?, get up run for 9.5 hours for 50 miles and place first in his age group, then drive another 10-12 home?

Wha?

Does this mean Uncle Dave never sleeps and continuously runs across America coast to coast? Because we've always been told that Dave is the most um... "committed" to running between him and Dad? (Hi Dave!)

So apparently I get the big head, big ears and allergy genes... but no sign of the super-driven-48-hrs-of-energy-in-24-non-stop-yeah-I've-got-a-pacemaker-watch-me run-50-miles-today gene? COOL!

But seriously, impressive Dad. You were so fast you forgot to come get your Windows Server I've got sitting here. However that works out, got lots I can tweak on it still.

Congrats!

(what all the regular folk have to do to get to Dad's level ^^^ No it's not what you think)

if you count caffeine as doping then yes, bob is a doper since he was high on coca-cola the whole run. maybe the drives as well?

bob, insanely impressive

FEN FEN? You think that's his secret? Mom, don't give him anymore!

NOW he's comatose Lindsay. Just took some time for it all to catch up to him.
Looks like it will be just be me and the kids for scriptures and prayer tonight.
I figured out why Dad has had a stash of coke in the outside fridge for a month now. All that sugar and caffeine is what it takes I guess.
Pretty amazing Bob. bordering on the freakish, but amazing nonetheless.

Hey, Deb, do you know where my syringe went? I want to use it more than once.

debora said...

I rinsed it out and put it the drawer marked syringes in the study. shouldn't be too hard to find.
You have fun with that, okay?

Carly said...

Oh and yes Lindsay I'm still "fully intact." Although that phrase scares me as I feel like it means giving birth involves dismembering one's body?


Tick..tick..tick...
