Insanity Runs In My Family ... It Practically Gallops

by Rainier on June 23, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Nothing too exciting happened yesterday. We worked, played some CrimeCraft, watched some Burn Notice and Hell's Kitchen, and that was about it. The only real "highlight" of the day was that we went running again. Now that E3 is over and  summer has arrived, we decided to take advantage of the good weather to get our asses out of our chairs and exercise. Over the past 3 weeks, I've packed on 6-7 pounds, so they have got to go. I'd prefer to lose a few extra pounds if we get into the rhythm.

Too bad there isn't an open field in the immediate area, or we could strap on the good ol' soccer cleats and break out the old soccer ball.
