I know that I am DAYS behind in posting this, but, this is a chaotic time of year. So, I apologize to those of you who have been waiting for updates.

This past weekend I was in Vienna, VA with my son and his family celebrating the "twins" 2nd birthday. It's simply amazing to me how quickly the time goes by. Even the "little guy" is nearly 8 months old and tearing around the house in his walker.

On Saturday night we had an extended family dinner and cake with the children, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. I'm just grateful for all the people that love these children and are so willing to share in their joy.

I did get in some runs. One, with my son as he prepares for his Army P.T. test and a couple of hilly run/walk, walk/runs on my own. It's probably the travel but I am having more fatigue in my legs than I can ever remember. I'll be fine for a week or so and then BOOM, I've got nothing in my legs.

We're off to the Country Music Marathon and Half Marathon in Nashville this weekend. It's always a fun event and a bit of a homecoming for me.

ORN: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. About 30 minutes each day. Running some, walking some.

When you have the chance read the book "Healing Back Pain" by Dr. John E. Sarno. I found it very helpful for back and knee pain.

What-ho me old colonial penguin!

Saw you a year or so ago in London and I was struck by your laid back approach to running the marathon.

I'm the 2012 Olympic Marathon Gold Medalist (OK, I know it hasn't been run yet, but, believe me, I'm a shoe-in for the gold).

Missed you in Blighty this year - but thought you might appreciate an incisive mile-by-mile report of this years London Marathon.

You never know, it might inspire you to make a challenge!

Keep in tapering

Love the photos, John. I have twin grandsons, now 3, and a granddaughter, now 10 months. Plus a son in the Army in Baghdad, plus a son who just won an ROTC scholarship to Wheaton College in Chicago. So, lots of PT connections.

My best to your son. Enjoy the grandkids!
