<p>Thanks once again to <strong>Tedjan</strong> for preparing the graphs. Please feel free to PM me with any corrections/comments/omissions, and I'll take care of them right away. As I said previously, it's truly been my pleasure to provide these monthly summaries for all of you, my mentors in running. You all inspire me so much!!</p>

<p>Thank you OM and Ted.  You guys do a super job with this.  Geeky me thinks it's interesting that the mean and median are so close together given the large standard deviation.  Usually you don't see that!</p>
