Total Distance

Haven't run in weeks.  Decided after reading Tracy's blog that I better.  I felt ok for the first few minutes.  The the wheezing started.  Sometimes it only lasts a little bit.  But today it got worse and worse.  I'll have to remember to bring my inhaler with me next time.

Ben - how long have you been waiting to say that to me?

Addison - I'm like, who the heck is Addison? LOL! I guess now I know where you disappeared to a few months ago.

Get better Burt.

From Addison on Thu, Mar 15, 2018 at 21:19:29 from

Hey Mr. Burt, are you feeling better yet? Breathing issues are no fun. I noticed I breathe a lot better after losing a ton of weight, figuratively, not literally.

u ok 4 real?

From Burt on Sun, Apr 01, 2018 at 19:18:40 from

Yes. Happy Easter everyone. I've been getting crazy busy at work, to the point where I've decided to hire another PE. Taking two days off for Ragnar sent me back a little, and then taking another two/three days off during Spring Break really set me back. Crazy. I'll try running again soon.

Hey Burton! I've been running, just haven't been posting. Can't believe it's been about 5 years since I posted though. Maybe I should start again. I miss y'all.
