I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Jon - I have been able to recover the entries. I do not know how you managed to go back from fast/slow to just miles - this should not be possible, the blog should not have even given you an option to do it, but it did. Apparently you hit some bug. Fortunately, it never deletes the old entries, only changes their type. In this case, they were not matching your template, so they disappeared from the application view, but were still in the database. Apparently somehow you managed to change them to the Jack Daniels template. In your case I could change it back to fast/slow, but it would be a bit of a mess to change it to just miles.

Yeah, maybe we should just change it back to fast/slow. Serves me right for messing around with it. Thanks for getting the data back.
