    I drive it every other week

    Just under 1/2 a tank and about 3 hours one way.

    Not bad.

    What gym do you train at? I just moved to W. Newton and my neighbor owns a gym in Scituate. He trains PLers and athletes from what I understand. Says they have events there occasionally. I dunno if any OTers train there.

    Super nice guy and says I should come down and train. Hour drive though. Sheesh.
