Dr. Ron Paul = a politician I love. This man is amazing.

I just came home from visiting my parents in Memphis, Tennessee – I was shocked to learn that a lot of people who live around that area haven’t even heard of him. It is glaringly disturbing to me to the extent by which the media is distorting and biasing the projection of serious issues. Hopefully this man and a country of supporters, might initiate change for the better.

Al and I had dinner with my parents tonight,…a rare opportunity as they live so far away.  My mom made chocolate cake – she said it was especially for me.  She reminded me of accounts from my first 1/2 Ironman (in Orillia, Ontario),…I was 16 years old at the time, and bonked bad while struggling with heat exhaustion during the final stage of the race.  She recalls me lying in the medical tent,…moaning the words,…”cccccchooocoolate caaaaaaaaake,…Mom,…I neeeeeeeed cccchocolate caaaaaake!”

Ma, you done well.  Thanks for the chocolate cake.

I knew he could do it,…about 3-months prior, I called it!!!  I told 53 year-old Ken that he could break the 3hour mark in his next marathon. At the time,…he said, “WHAT??! You really think I can? That’d be a 12min PB for me!”.  I said,…”yes, I KNOW you can,…now start believing you can”.

Ken’s time Dec 2nd, 2007 in the Sacramento Marathon: 2:59:02.
