As I've said before - FANTASTIC! And in getting faster you have spurred me to work harder because now I want to beat your PR!

So what's next? 5 of the same thing or are you mixing it up? I can't remember the goals so could you please repost them?

See, I told you so - I knew you could absolutely do it. :)

Was reading about your fantastic race in Bridge2Bridge, but somehow Blogger comments was not working for me. Congrats! What a way to get a PR. Way to push yourself to the limits!

Now you are really putting on the pressure for when I turn 40 later in the year... ;)

Great job! That's really focusing on a discipline, isn't it? Sort of like me and water. Except I'll bet you don't smell like chlorine.

Way to set a goal and crush it.

I want to tell you I thought that was really smart of you for a goal this year and that I am proud of you for finishing them and getting better with them.
