WHAT I LIKE TODAY: Your daily dose of The Awesome
Today The Awesome is playing a game for Lexulous (read: fake Scrabble) against the daughter of the guy who used to manage your dad's sprout-growing business in Iowa. Witness the power of Facebook!
I am a 35-year-old accounts receivable clerk from Denver who in 2010 intends to break the world record for the 24-hour inline skating time trial. The current mark stands at 337.773 miles, set by Mauro Guenci of Italy in 2004. I have skated 267 miles and 315 miles in two previous 24-hour races. When I'm not skating or otherwise training, I enjoy eating and sleeping.
