a super belated "birthday run" post

I know that this is a very late entry, but I think that it is worth posting.

A couple of weeks ago, Skip and Wendy from OCTR organized a birthday run for me. The posting on the OCTR message board read...

E-Rod's Birthday Rumba at Crystal Cove
Running on the beach in Crystal Cove in celebration of E-Rod's 29th birthday. A Birthday drink (Adult beverage or fruit juice) on the beach @ the Beachcomber afterwards. We run a total of 6 miles on the beach to El Moro tunnel and then return back.

29th, hah! Now that's a good one. But I'll take it. The run and post-training drinks were attended by about a dozen runner friends–Wendy, Skip, Tracie, Jessica, Kayla, Julian, Mala, Sue, Ryan, Eric KP, and Jenn G. It was a great late afternoon run on the beach. The Patron shots and Coronas that followed weren't bad either. Thanks, guys!

Does this post signal the return of E-rod in cyberspace? How're you doing over there? Hope all is well.

A super belated answer: Happy birthday, man!!!
I feel sorry I missed all the fun due to a conflict with my family’s calendar that Tuesday.
By the way when I saw what your entered as “your” age in Mt. Disappointment results and on the list of Twin Peaks entrants, I thought: No freaking way! – It is either this is another Eric or he is fooling around about it! The 29th birthday celebration note on OCTR web site confirmed my doubts – this is totally more like it.
Anyways, stop fooling around with your age and ask Jess to correct it on Twin Peaks site to the actual one - 29. People will not buy whatever is written there anyways :-)
