Beverage Discoveries

I enjoy spiru-tein shakes in the morning and was considering using them for the WHW but figured it would be better to have them ready-made.  I ordered two cases of the pre-fab canned version from the company and tried one

Under 30 Days!

I did a 20 miler on Saturday and then hiked up to see the mountain play on Sunday. Now, it is time to tackle a lot of logistics and a ridiculous packing list all for a long run.

Ready?

Is anyone ever ready for Wildflower Long Course? I am woefully underprepared for the bike and haven’t done much swimming.  Right now the only thing I am excited about is that I am so organized I managed to pack everything

I have been playing with the beta for Yahoo! Mail and it sure does look nice. The responsiveness, however, to put it nicely, sucks. It takes 10-15 seconds everytime it loads which is pretty much a show stopper right there.
