Someone was kind enough to explain the Natalie Merchant deal. It was played during a touching photo montage of people fighting leukemia. Very fitting. I couldn't the montage with the hypoxia and all. I could barely see the oddometer on the handl... Read more

First off, I like my job. I have an interesting combo of bosses, some quite colorful coworkers, and a decent occupation. Most of the time, the work place is reasonably pleasant. Sometimes, it's a blast. Other times, a very small minority of the ... Read more

Thursday, February 16, 2012 3 comments
The gym I go to has a bank of tvs on at all times. Most are set to news or sports or talk shows. Fortunately, there is only one with the sound on. Unfortunately, it plays music videos Avril Lavign, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, hipsters ironically sin... Read more

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 3 comments
I didn't run today, nor did I clean the kitchen. The problem was this: I hadn't looked at the clock. Over the last few years, my body got used to going to sleep around 2:30am and getting up between 9 and 9:30. I really shouldn't say "got u... Read more

I finally got my sweetie on SP. The dirty deed happened Sunday night after our pre-Valentines Day dinner, from which she bolted before the entree arrived, leaving me to walk home. Details in a previous blog. I got home from the walk, grabbe... Read more

My girlfriend went grocery shopping with me last night. I think I surprised her. She's been shopping with me before, but never when I've been buying food to cook. In the past, the trips have been to buy stuff to eat. There is a huge difference. ... Read more

So last night I was at home, getting ready to head out to the gym and then the grocery. That was the plan. As they say, the best way to make God laugh is to tell him your plans. The first thing that went awry was the radio was on. A local show p... Read more

This weekend is shaping up to (potentially) be incredibly productive. Word on the street is we're not working O.T. tomorrow. Not working Sat puts me into a 3 day weekend mode. They may be offering O.T. on Monday, but I really enjoy having M... Read more

I'm at work and it's lunch, so I get some time on SP. Let me make some observations: 1) Nothing much is as entertaining as the look on somebody's face when they google themselves and their arrest record shows up. Of course, the look on thei... Read more
2/7/12--Speed Up From A Slow Run To A Fast Walk
Tuesday, February 07, 2012 4 comments
I did the 1 mile walking test yesterday. Running wise, my pace has been dropping towards the 13 minute mile mark. As I start adding speed work and my miles creep up, that should drop more. That's what happened last year. I'm happy with that. Or... Read more

There's something I've learned from the nutrition tracker. I eat too much sodium. Sodium is probably my biggest issue with my diet. Not calories, fat, or cholesterol (though I do go over on them from time to time), but sodium. Almost every day, ... Read more

A few years back, a really neat restaurant opened in town. The house of a family my sisters and I had gone to school with was sold to a young couple and they turned it into the neatest place ever to go eat. They use organic whenever possible. Lo... Read more
