Great work on the pullups with Lynne. I run out of gas at about 12 then it's downhill from there. Never mastered the "kip" so mine are mostly deadhang with a little body english. I am both impressed and envious of anyone, especially at our age, cranking out 20 pullups.

Went for a 6 mile run with my wife and daughter yesterday AM after church. Very easy pace 9:30 - 10/mile. After the run, my wife suggested a few stairs so off we went to do 10. While we were there noticed three young (to me) girls training. All three were Chicago Fire Department EMT's training to "crossover" which I took to mean they wanted to become full fledge fire fighters. Tough girls, one even had her overcoat/pants and boots on, another a weight vest. Very cool to see that type of dedication.

Will do my yoga today at noon. Stretching should be good after that run.
