One night this winter I had a dream. I dreamt I had pancakes. And that morning, you know what? Yes, that's right, I had pancakes. Yes, dreams can come true. I like to share that one with my students before a race.

Over and over again.

Woke up yesterday w/ a new owwy. Pain on the inside of my ankle. It's either because my bike shoes aren't stiff enough to handle a 25 mile mountain bike ride... or because I spent a lot of time in flip flops. Hmm. Technically, it's not the shoe's fault it's my foot's fault. But I'm going to buy some better bike shoes.

Went for a 4.5 mile run with HS xc team this am, soaked my legs in the river. Took a nap.

Hit count way up. This gives meaning to my life.

Spent 3 hours today working on my online course dealing with Teaching AP Government (US). Pretty excited about teaching that... it will be a lot of work.

Found a new breakfast that I like. It's a smoothie... but with cheerios blended in. Nice higher level of bulk, and should keep that cholesterol down. For sweetness, use honey nut. I like a 50/50 mix.

I think I might go home and make some pancakes. Ice the foot. Got a beach tournament this weekend. My first ever.

Remember, the lesson of pancakes.
Dreams can come true... and...
They seem like they're going to be awesome, but as soon as you have one bite too many, you feel like you're eating sponge.

"I have a dream, a dream that one day a man will be judged not by the brand of his griddle but by the taste of his pancakes!"

This has the potential to be the hottest blog entry ever.
