Thursday, January 28, 2010      4 comments

The official Brightroom photos are in to help me relive the day. If I'm correct, these two were snapped during the southbound leg along Carlsbad Blvd. on the shallow rise at south Ponto, about a half mile from the turnaround. ... Read more
Run Tempo Mix (video blog)
Saturday, December 05, 2009      4 comments

I don't really like running with headphones, but I discovered how to modify the tempo of song tracks without turning the vocals into chipmunks. Here's an eclectic mix of songs I've updated to about 180-190 beats per minute which work as a good ... Read more

Sunday was a recovery day from a giant, too-rich buffet dinner Saturday night. Was feeling too dragged and tired to work out. Then...pulled an almost-all-nighter Sunday night, preparing for a conference this week. Had to do it, but when... Read more
Vintage Nike

I've hung onto these since 1980. They're basically nothing but moccasins with the trademark Nike waffle soul. They were the uniform shoe of my high school cross country tea... Read more

Finding out I weighed 164 lbs (~74 kilos for you metric folks...or 11 stone 10 pounds for you old Commonwealth types) was my "spark." I probably would have freaked back in September had I seen that I weighed close to or over 170. 164 was a st... Read more
