Coming FIRST in a marathon! And pretty impressive time too — 2 hours 40 minutes. Just 20 minutes shy of the winning time at the 2018 Boston marathon.
He is young. Very early 20s. I have known him since he was about 12.
I see him running most days. Sometimes I am also running, but he makes me look like I am walking backwards. Extremely thin and superbly fit. He would run 12 miles a day without thinking about it while I suffer running my 3.5 miles.
Family of exceptional runners — father & two sons; Drew the elder of the two. Father, John, is the long distance running coach at our local high school. He has run the Boston Marathon numerous times — including the year of the bombing. This year Drew will be running. I am so excited and happy.
I have talked to Drew about the Olympics. That might now be possible.
This is so great.
He runs by our house most mornings while I am still in bed. I know he is going by because the dogs go crazy.
Another example. Note hand is higher. Closer to grill.
Haven’t had a chance to see his over-the-top, near-obnoxious constant crossing of himself of late since he hasn’t been at the crease for long. Just 2-balls in the first T20I against South Africa yesterday. I have always said he should be consistent. He should thank God even when he is out — cheaply. He can’t have it both ways. If he is stupid enough to believe that God helps him score runs, then he also has to accept that God must want him gone when he gets out and has to start walking back.
He was even dropped from the side. He must have been beside himself. I can just see him. On his knees praying.
Poor guy. If he wasn’t so obnoxious he could be quite a decent bugger.

Happens this time every year. It comes out of the blue.
I am NOT complaining. It is NOT a big check BUT it can keep me in wine for 2-weeks. That is better than a kick-in-the-teeth any day of the week.
If these were NOT technology books it wouldn’t crack me up at all. But, these are books that are now 60% out-of-date! Yes, some of the basic principles will still be the same but a lot of water flows under the bridge over the course of 15-years when it comes to technology.
These books have a ‘Look Inside‘ capability and people can return them. That I am still getting royalties mean that people must still find some value in them. That pleases me. These were good books when I wrote them.
I also got pretty decent advances on each of the books. So, I am pleased. I am smiling.
