Irish dancing huh? Sounds interesting. My best friend is Irish and has some sister's who dance, but they live in Tucson so I probably couldn't do that too regularly.
Grips, when you come out here, we'll definitely do a 5k or something along those lines. I think I would die if I tried to run 5k right now.
I probably weigh about 210 now and don't have half the muscle I did in college. If I could get to 195 and get 75% of the muscle back I had then, I'd be happy.
