Well, if you voted for change don't be distraught, ineptitude is a change.

The plan for this year calls for one half-marathon and a fall marathon. I will run the Via Marathon in September. I am also in the lottery drawing for NYC. If I get lucky, I'll run two marathons in the fall.
I logged 378 miles on the bike, mostly on the Fuji but some of that, probably less than 20, was on the unicycle.

I upgraded from a no-name 20" to a Torker Unistar CX 24". I had to hack off about 2" from the seat stem so I could lower the seat and freemount easier. The new seat is also not very male-friendly and I now need to wear "core support" when I ride. Otherwise, the bigger wheel allows for me to cover distance a tad easier.
On the second or third day I had it, I went three miles, which was quite a workout!

The new trash and recycling cans have RFID tags in them. They are above the number and in that lip. Nothing about this was mentioned in the literature or on the website.
Use of these cans is mandatory. So, what are they tracking? Why was this fact not disclosed?

Obama to let spy agencies scour Americans' finances
Impeachment would be nice except that it would put Biden in change. Well played, Barry.

What a surprise. Well, not really.
From Slate, which certainly doesn't lean right.
President Obama promised transparency and open government. He failed miserably. So why do Washington watchdog groups look the other way?

The plan for this year calls for one half-marathon and a fall marathon. My fingers are crossed that I'll into the NYC Marathon this year. If not, I haven't decided on a backup yet.
Add another 361 for velo and that's 1268 miles moving forward; a big drop from 2011 when I logged 975/474.

6730 out of 11422 finishers
My goal was a 4:15 and, up to around mile 15 or so, I was around a 9:10 pace and had a good shot at a low 4 finish. I never hit the wall but by mile 18 the feet and hamstrings were beginning to hurt. I didn't walk too much during this one, maybe 5-8 times for under a minute each time.
I high-fived Mayor Nutter at the finish line!
Overall, a well organized marathon; lots of enthusiastic spectators and great volunteers.
