Hair brushed and parted, typical me, typical me, typical me

April 3, 2009

Running is coming along fairly well.  I did my first running workout since November 5th this week in the form of an 11km tempo run.  I felt pretty good aerobically and my running was OK except for my right foot.  It doesn’t really hurt where the break was but, my foot is locked up which results in pain near my ankle.  My foot isn’t moving and flexing properly so all the force gets applied on the top of my foot.  Thankfully I got some work done on it this week by Brenda Scott-Thomas and some exercises to help it out.

Nornee bought 50 oranges that I squeezed into juice the old fashioned way.  I was staying indoors to avoid the pollen so I had the time.


Here is the next installment of my trip to Auburn.  Nornee wanted me to attend her Democrats of Auburn club meeting and insisted that I look proper.  The speaker, Dr. Wayne Flynt,  talked about the relationship of Southern culture and football in the early 20th century.  I realize that topic sounds like I made it up, but that’s what it was, no joke.

    Hi Reid,

    So glad you’re back from Auburn – it can be a scary place. Oh, not Auburn the community or University, I’m referring to the dark side of Nornee that we’ve grown to fear. As sweet as the old woman is – she does have a dark side, probably as a result of being the queen of her castle where it is her way or the wrong way. I think you’ve rightfully earned a position of sainthood. I speak for many when I say we admire your ability to laugh it off and appreciate being able to see her in action through your videos without actually having to be there.

    Awesome. Nornee should open her own salon. Get Pete to sign up and it can be the official hair salon of the Auburn XC team.
