Day 1

March 3rd, 2010 No comments

I’ve decided to start running – this time for real ;)  Today was my first day back.  I ended up running for ~2.5 miles in 26 minutes (10 minute 24 second miles) with a bit of cool down at the end.  I’m actually feeling much better than I thought I would after the first run, but I’m sure tomorrow morning will bring a different story!  Here is the route I ran (a bit hilly at places) this evening:

Day 1

Notice the nice off-shoot I took at the east end of my run – I was hoping to cut across to the trails in the foothills – but got caught in a cul-de-sac and had to come back… at least it was downhill on the way back ;)   Thanks Claudia for motivating me to get back into better shape!  Wish me luck.

UCLA won?

April 5th, 2006 No comments

I got a good laugh out of an email I received *before* the NCAA championship was played out. The subject of the email was “[placeholder for winning team] Wins the NCAA Tournament!” And the body of it contained the following words:

UCLA Wins!

Congratulations, [placeholder for winning team]! As someone who has purchased sports products from Amazon.com, we thought you should be the first to see our selection of NCAA championship products.

I received the above email at 7:43 AM on April 3rd… Nice snafu for Amazon ;)

Also just found the following article on ABC news about it:
