2010 – My 100th Run!

Posted May 13 2010 1:51pm

Just a quick update…

 

RUNNING…

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!

Lenovo wifi keyboard mouse

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!

 

Humor?

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.”
