Dear Friends and Family,

First off, I just want to say how great you all are. You listen to my long winded running talk and put up with me smelling like an 800 lb male gorilla in heat after my runs. You also provide supportive comments and encouragement. Really, I couldn’t have picked a better group of folks. Well, except for maybe Uncle Eddy, he’s a tad strange.

Anyway my loves, I have a request.

Please stop calling me after 8:30 PM on Friday nights. I know that I used to go out on Fridays until 4 AM and be available for hilarious drunk text messaging. I also know that I used to stay in on Friday nights and be available for hilarious drunk text messaging. But since running has come into my life I must ask that you stop calling me or texting me past this early (lame) hour.

From here until October I will be running at 5:30 AM to beat the ridiculousness that is the Florida heat. Know that I love you. But if you call me at 11 PM, I am liable to eat your face off through the phone.

Warmest Regards,
