So Mack tried to help with a picture for my blog Wednesday



Unfortunately, you can't see the frozen eyebrows.

This was after a 5.5 mile run on Wednesday late afternoon. I seem to have acclimated to the cold weather. My times were down in the 8:15/mile range.

New snow had fallen on Tuesday. Just a dusting, but enough to slow me down as i couldn't see icy areas under the dusting. Of yes, ice was there and the occasional slide kept my stride a little tighter than normal.

Needless to say, running in shorts may be delayed for a few weeks. Gear for this month looks like; wicking mock turtle, heavy sweatshirt, running pants, heavy long socks, double insulated-gloves, scarf, ski-cap (with a face mask).

Official Marathon training begins Monday, finally, and the forecast is somewhere in the minus(es)---that's F not C for my Canadian friends---6 miles,....piece of cake

Vote for Mike '08, update....

As yet another previously war supporting demon-crat surfaces to announce his/her plans to campaign for president.... i wonder....

....Why...., in a world where named storms crash into the Neatherlands in the winter, ....or a massive tornado rips through Florida in February, ...and oil prices soar to an all-time high again after a year of record oil company profits....

...aren't the leaders of the demon-cratic party rally-ing, around the one politician who has been warning us of the dangers with global warming, and had the guts to call out BushCo on the truth behind Iraq and its costs in lives and the economy, and already won the presidential election once? ...until big money, i mean, oil money, pulled the biggest coup in history

Vote for Mike '08, unless Al Gore decides to run, or i can talk him into being my running mate.... The best VP to never shoot his friend in the face with birdshot...

Thanks for reading

I'm kinda digging the whole Man vs. Nature running thing. What I'm not digging is the fact that the Florida tornado destroyed homes within 1/4 mile - same neighborhood - as my parents house while they huddled on the floor waiting for it to pass. They lost nothing but some screens and shingles fortunately. I can do without that aspect of Man vs. Nature.

...no word on whether the Little Debbies made it to safety.

LOL Nitmos! Gotta save the little debbies if nothing else! Wow, when I heard the name of the city I knew it was familiar, didn't click that was where your folks were.

Glad to finally read someone else blogging about our next president! Sorry, Mike: I love ya and stuff, but Al's my guy. He's been working behind the scenes (unless you count that little movie...3rd-highest-grossing documentary of all time) to lay the groundwork for a campaign, and I hope he goes for it. He can wipe out Sens. Clinton and Obama with large blocs of both women AND afro-american voters, he has a long history of service in both the Senate AND the White House, and with his internet grassroots support I'm guessing he can out-dollar EITHER of the two "front-runners."

Different subject: make sure you get some of those little rubber ice-cleat thingies to stretch over the bottoms of your shoes. No slipping allowed!
