Saturday Administration

I'm a little unhappy with my blog layout, so I've been playing around with it. I was up last night at midnight sneaking into Ian's room to kidnap his beaver for the photo in the new header. Then, not realizing I was dead tired, I messed up both the clipping path on the photo and the number of pixels I meant to select for width. I'm shocked I spelled "blog" correct. Ugh.

Today I'm going out for a 10 mile run. It will be my second attempt, the first was in November and successful. I'm feeling good about it, it's not forced, it's something I want to go out and do.

So a new audio book is downloaded and breakfast is digesting nicely. T-minus an hour or so.

I've been thinking lately about how triathlon lifestyle has not yet been commercialized outside of core gear and apparel. I mean this in the sense that Oklahoma City has a Pac Sun and though you have pretty much zero chance of surfing today, you can still wear a Hurley tee.

I also realize that triathlon is still less popular than surfing and the romanticism associated with surfing (sun, palm trees) is not quite the same as that of triathlon (pain). But I like the pain, and I'd buy a causal Newton Running tee to wear when I roll out on the town. In fact I'd rather support them than Nike.

I have to think this one through.

Until later, Ciao.
