It's exactly 20 weeks until IM Louisville and the only shape I'm in is round. So once again it's time to get my ass in gear.

So close I can taste it.
No, I'm not talking about a race. And I don't see my waiter coming from across the restaurant (though that is always exciting). I'm talking about the Startup I've been working on since August 2012.
