SO, he is predicting or his weeks are different from ours (like not Sunday to Saturday)??

The weather is perfect, fall is the best. Which reminds me, I need to go wash some long sleeved shirts for tomorrow. Off to the laundry, dang!

From JD on Fri, Sep 10, 2010 at 22:40:21 from

WET = Week Ending Today. The total miles run in the last 7 day period.

So the epic run will be Saturday?

Haha Auntieem. I can't do the epic long runs every week. That's Sno's job! I don't know how she does it.
