    Whaaaaaa??? OK, I’ve run with Chelsea a million times (we used to coach marathon runners together) and she ain’t never got me nuthin for my birthday!!! Haha, it’s OK, I don’t think I ever got her anything either.
    Way to go on your run! You’re doing great with the negative splits. I really need to get back into running that way!
