^^ what he said ^^

I've had a few of these crazy Chinese character comments this week. Annoying!!! I really don't want to turn on word verification because I hate typing in those tedious words every time I leave a comment for people. *rant over*

Hope you are feeling rested for your big long run this morning! And if not, it's good practice to run on tired legs!
