In 2010, I have run 100 runs as of today! My run today was 8.08 miles. I have run 552 miles so far this year. I am putting on the miles training for the Seattle Rock and Roll marathon on June 26. I will be running the full marathon with my friend, Tom. Tom wanted to try a full marathon and I decided to run along as support for a curious friend!
Some weekends are a trial, some are not. I ran a 5K last weekend with a friend. Jeff had been training for the 5K for a while. It was a great morning and a fun community race. Jeff did great! He ran a wonderful race and faster than he thought he would. He even placed 2nd in his age group! Congratulations, Jeff!
Now, I ran the 5K, then I ran from the event to my house, then finished my scheduled 18 miles on the ol’ treadmill! Now that is an event!
This coming weekend things clicked for once. I have a bi-week with a schedule of 13 miles. Well… Why not run a Pikermi (half-marathon)? So, I will be running the Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon (the half anyway).
What does it all mean? Basically, that I will be so happy when the marathon run has been completed! AND… That there will be an update next week!

This is the new wireless keyboard/mouse combination that I am using with the HTPC system. It saves a lot of space in the livingroom. It replaced a full size wireless keyboard and mouse. This thing is amazingly small and very usable! It is offered by Lenova.
If you didn’t know, we do not have a TV service at the house anymore. We do use Netflix at the base rate of $9 per month. We also use off-the-air television broadcasts (HD) through Sage TV software. A lot of our watching is video on demand from internet sources.
I am very satisfied with what we are receiving and using. PLUS, the savings are huge!
Are you training for an event? Ever feel like this guy?
A customer in a bakery was observed carefully examining all the rich-looking pastries displayed on trays in the glass cases. When a clerk approached him and asked, “What would you like?” he answered, “I’d like that chocolate-covered, cream-filled doughnut, that jelly-filled doughnut and that cheese Danish.” Then with a sigh he added, “But I’ll take an oat-bran muffin.”
