Roxy's New Career

Here's another one

They're coming to Altoona next Tuesday, but that's the night before Beth leaves for IMCDA so I don't think we can make it up that night. We'll just have to set up our own little Roxy Monkey Rodeo.

In other news, my dad and I are heading up to Altoona tonight for a birthday/father's day evening at the ballyard. Hopefully the rain will stay away. There aren't many hitting prospects at Altoona (insert joke about not being any hitting prospects in the entire Pirates' system). But, Tim Alderson is pitching tonight so it'll be interesting to see how he's different from when I saw him last August.

Okay - time for Pizza Hut Lunch Buffet with Beth!!!!

Back to Training

After returning to a 40-mile week of running, this is how I felt (chalk line inserted via Microsoft Paint).

I did a 5k last weekend in Freeport on our Rails-to-Trails and it definitely hurt. I ended up 2nd and went under 18:00, so I guess that's a good start to the summer.

Those Buccos keep finding ways to win. 4 games over .500 and 1 game out of first place and we're past 1/3 of the way through the season. Is it sustainable this year? I'll have to write about that soon before it becomes moot.

Off to church, lunch, and a graduation party. Ah, summer!
