Well, I am up early for another run. After a successful Chicago Marathon (successful for me at least), I have decided to slip in another marathon during the season down in Austin, Texas. I will watch the Ants play the Legends on February 17, and then I will travel over to Austin for the marathon on the 19th, and I will then fly home that night so I am home for my little sweetie's fifth birthday. I can't believe she is going to be five. This is going way too fast for me. Anyway, I ran 16 miles this past Sunday, will run 7 miles runs for the next three days with a ramp up to running 18 miles on Christmas Eve. I figured this is a good way to combat my usual difficulty with gaining weight during a season. Let's hope it works!

Quick update on the game today. The Ants will have Cam Jones back from his stint trying out for the Miami Heat. From what I heard from him, he had a great experience, but he is ready to get back with the Ants and continue his fine play with the us. Cam is one of the smartest and smoothest players you will see, and his mid range game is really highly developed for a player right out of school. As a rookie, he will have some highs and lows, but his cool demeanor will help make the swings less violent than most other young players. I am excited to see him back in the Ants uniform to watch his continued development.
