But I met the most interesting person Wednesday. Her name is Jennifer Cunningham, and she is a drug representative for Lilly's, whose main prescription drugs are Cymbalta, Cialis and Axiron.
Jennifer came into my lab, and noticed all the OU memorabilia on the wall, and we started up a conversation.

Poteau High School history teacher Tom Brennan saw me at the starting line and said, "When I left Poteau, it was 65 degrees. (I'm) glad we are in Tulsa running in 40-degree weather today.”
