Run to feed the hungry results

Ran a Thanksgiving race with Uncle John and family and here are the results. Great day for a run and we all had fun.

Just got some video footage of the City Chase Nationals courtesy of City Chase. Apparently more video to come. Pat and I are in it quite a bit. :)

Stretching: The Truth

There was an article in the New York times at the end of Oct. stating the cons to static stretching and explaining proper stretching techniques (

Here is a video that I just found showing the stretches. Stay safe and injury free; something I have trouble doing.

Time for Bed.
Holding my breathIt's so hard to do

Will it rain?

Sometimes you just want a Yes or No answer regarding the weather. And this website gives it to you.

Masters swimming

Well, as you all know, I am going to be giving Ironman New Zealand a go in March 2009. So I'm getting serious about it by formally getting a coach and training program along with really focusing on my swim which is my worst event of the 3. Yesterday I got up at 5 so that I could give Masters swimming a try. What I didn't know is there are IM workouts during the hour of swimming which include the butterfly, backstroke, and breast along with freestyle. I have never done the butterfly stroke and after flopping my self 25 yards down the lane, I thought I was going to drown. But the coach was very understanding and explained to me the technique along with how to make my other strokes more efficient. I look forward to getting better at swimming but waking up at 5 am is something I'm not excited about.

In California Prop 8 overturned Gays' rights to marry. It was a close contest with the result being 52-48. I was part of the 48% hoping that my gay friends would have the same rights as me. Not sure if this is truly ironic but I read/heard/saw somewhere stating that Obama supporters coming out in such large numbers ended up hurting Prop 8. It turns out that 70% of African Americans voted yes on Prop 8 and this election not only brought out a record number of voters but also minority voters.

Apparently I'm gender neutral in my writing.

Gchat has video function

So Google is looking to be more competitive with its IM within Gmail. They've recently offered the ability to communicate within the Gmail page via video with your chat buddies. All it requires is a plugin and BAM, you're good to go. For some of you, you can just go to settings and find it either under the chat title or labs. I'm not sure because I had to search for the plugin via google as it wasn't available as simply I would have hoped. But I have enjoyed the additional options available while chatting. It's all about multitasking.

Will.I.Am: It's A New Day

Tuesday, November 04, 2008


Please don't call me an elitist. I don't feel good about my current feelings BUT...
I just used a Starbucks restroom after a homeless guy and thought I was going to throw up.
The potent smell that lingered and it wasn't from his bowel movements, it was the odor.
It just stayed and took over the bathroom. I'm going to have bad dreams tonight.

Summing it up

Dear Red States:

If you manage to steal this election too, we've decided we're leaving.
We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue
States with us. In case you aren't aware, that includes California ,
Hawaii , Oregon , Washington , Minnesota , Wisconsin , Michigan ,
Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be
beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new
country of New California .

To sum up briefly:

You get Oklahoma, Texas, and all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

We get the Statue of Liberty .
You get Dollywood.

We get Intel and Microsoft.
You get WorldCom.

We get Harvard.
You get Oral Roberts University.

We get 85% of America 's venture capital and entrepreneurs.
You get Alabama .

You get Alito, Roberts, Scalia, and Thomas; we get Souter, Breyer,
Stephens, and Ginsberg, and Kennedy can have his choice;

We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states
pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian
Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families, and you get a bunch of
single moms.

Please be aware that we will be pro-choice and anti-unnecessary wars,
and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq. If you need
people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're
apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they
don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets
coming home. We do wish you every success in your quest for victory in
Iraq , and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend
our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have 80% of the country's fresh
water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's
fresh fruit, 95% of America 's quality wines, 90% of all cheese, 90%
of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa
!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias
and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford , Cal
Tech and MIT. We acknowledge that we will hate to lose pecans and
peaches, but some sacrifices have to be made.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88%
of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92% of
all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the
hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all
televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, and Bob Jones University.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite , thank you.

Additionally, 38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was
actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're
discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that
evolution is only a theory, 53% believe that Saddam was involved in
9/11 and 61% of you believe you are people with higher morals then we
blue staters. After we leave, you can elect Sarah Palin to any office
that your heart desires - who knows, maybe having a politician in
national office who believes that demons and witches have infested
different parts of the country might work out. We hope so, for your

Good luck to you all,

Your Blue State Friends
