On an unrelated sidenote, I need to get a comment counter thing, I went all circa 1991 and COUNTED every comment. Next time I cap the entries at 10 so I don't run out of fingers so many times.
Finally - I strongly recommend checking out Julia 's amazing blog, C'est La Vie . Julia is a doctor/ super talented runner and possibly capable of freezing time - I have no idea how she works 12 hour shifts, gets all her runs in and still finds time to post super interesting and well-researched posts every day! She posted a fantastic piece on Obesity in America today. It's a topic that I'm really interested in, and I'm passionate about trying to get more people into running and a healthier lifestyle. Check out her post here !
