I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. 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!

I'm not sure your blog may be boring but your monthly people visitor thingy says 190, mine is down to 49. Mine is boring and rarely visited. I guess it is kind of like my runs boring and rarely done.

You're down to 48 now, Dustin. Maybe you need to start doing 90 mile weeks to attract attention, if it means that much to you :)

From Adam RW on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 15:28:47 from

Jon, I second Dustin's comment. I wish I was a boring 190...

It's all because of the miles right now, not due to any witty insights from me (since there aren't any). And it's not due to me commenting on lots of other blogs- I have not had much time for that recently.

From Bonnie on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 19:59:25 from

ha ha ha ... it is interesting to compare your "boring" blogs and your witty reparte with the more interesting (e.g., girly) blogs. But you are right Jon, being tops on the mileage board automatically makes you more "interesting" ;-).

From Jon on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 20:05:30 from

Wait, Bonnie, are you saying only Girly blogs are interesting? Is Walter's interesting?

From JD on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 20:11:23 from


From Bonnie on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 20:11:55 from

Yes, Walter's blog is interesting ... but because he includes "girly" things -- like getting his hair-cut and pictures and stuff ;-) (please don't tell Walter, but heck he even discusses "girlish figure" right in his profile).
