Got on a plane for Miami.

I am 3 weeks into my first marathon training program. To this point, it has been around 25 miles per week. This week is 30 miles with some sprints and some accels mixed in the shorter runs. I ran 100 miles on the nose in May, will be at 109 for June after my 4 miles tonight. July is scheduled fo...

I was Freshman when Tim Bowens (UA) did everything for Brooks HS. I'll never forget watching him punting, having the ball snapped over his head by 8 yards. He went back picked it up and ran 92 yards for a TD. I played against Freddie Roach as well, when I was a senior. He wasn't a huge standout t...

Although he wasn't necessarily a horrible coach. I ran into Jay Boulware on the sidelines of a high school game I was filming. I don't know much about him. I had on some Bama gear. He came up to me to tell me war eagle. I had no idea who the dude was that had OU gear on talking shite. He seemed...

I was on a flight to Birmingham while on TDY for the AF back in 2006 and Mike Shula sat right across the aisle from me. I had a Bama hat on and he asked me if I was a student. I told him that I wasn't, but that I was in the military and he shook my hand and thanked me for my service. That was the ...
| O-T Lounge|| re: What year did you get your first cellular phone? - Chili Davis on 6/10/14 at 11:32 am|
2000 right after basic training. I believe it was a Nokia 5110. You could change out the faceplate on those phones at the kiosk in the mall for about $15.
I got it so I didn't have to wait in line for the bank of pay phones in tech school to call my family/friends.

I know a couple of people that have run streaks of more than 3 years. With a few ultra marathons mixed in there. So 7 days a week isn't unheard of. 4-8 miles per day isn't a ton either.
I'd just take a few days off. See if that makes it any better. If not, go talk to a doc....
| O-T Lounge|| re: Do soldiers in Iraq, etc. really need random fundraisers for sunscreen? - Chili Davis on 6/5/14 at 2:48 pm|
I would echo the others that said that sunscreen is plentiful there. Not many people use it anyway. You end up putting it on and dirt/grit ends up sticking to your face or you sweat it off in a half hour.
I also agree that troops generally appreciate whatever is sent over, even though the maj...

| O-T Lounge|| re: Getting rid of popcorn ceilings? - Chili Davis on 5/11/14 at 9:41 pm|
If the popcorn ceiling has shiny gold fleck it is probably asbestos containing. In fact, a large problem in older schools across the country is sprayed on ceiling texture that contains asbestos.
Lots of "sheetrock mud-like materials" contained asbestos because it is a good binder. I would say...

Watched the girl race in Wichita Saturday night. Everyone that gets in those things has to be a little crazy. Being in those little cages so close to the fuel. It says a lot that they'll allow a 12 year old out on the track too. That should tell you the quality of some of the drivers.
