The disappearing daddy

Tim's been work'n me hard, but has concerns about my lack of volume. Okay 14 hr training weeks are small to him, but they're huge to the rest of us! This has resulted in what one of our friends described as "the incredible disappearing daddy." Yes I've dropped weight. No I was not big before, but I'm 14 lbs lighter than this winter and the lightest I've been in 15 years. However I'm still feeling pretty good and my performance numbers are on track for a good race in Lake Placid. The following is a picture from a race in Bristol N.H. 10 days ago run in 98 degree heat. That was no fun, but I still managed an age group podium spot. Yes I do know how to put a hat on! There's a cold water soaked sponge under it to help keep my brain cool.
