The Oden Minutes (revisited)

On Sept. 13, 2007, Greg Oden had surgery on his knee.  Many months of rehab were in store for Mr. Oden.  He has shown endless energy to get back to our team and I am very proud of him.

Shortly after the surgery, I promised that I would lose 20 pounds during his rehab.

Today I made my goal!

You might think that 20 pounds is nothing.  It was difficult.  I started at 189 pounds.  169 today. 

Everytime that I went for a run, I had some sort of Blazer gear on.  Everyday I was reminded that Mr. Oden was in there working hard.  It motivated me to do so as well.

Last week, I ran the Prefontaine Classic road run in Coos Bay.  I proudly wore my black Oden shirt.  I did well too.  287th out of 1250 runners.  It was a very satisfying day.

I know that Dave was running his Oden minutes.  I'm curious, how did everyone else do?
