Will has already covered 19 miles, more than half the distance he did last year, and he’s motivated to keep going despite the miserable weather at #acrosstheyears
4 hours into #acrosstheyears and the runners are switching directions. Melissa is at 22 miles, while Will has covered 17 miles. It’s cold, rainy, windy in Phoenix.
9 miles for Will at #acrosstheyears
10 miles for Melissa at #acrosstheyears
Melissa and Will have just started their 24 hour run at Across The Years. It’s a cool, cloudy day in Phoenix.
An un-decorating mishap yesterday led to half a Christmas tree in my vacuum.
I’d really like to know what the deal is with the aspect ratio of A Christmas Story. The 16:9 widescreen edition on the Blu-Ray and the iTunes HD download are a cropped (top and bottom) version of the 4:3 edition that was released on DVD (though at higher resolution). Presumably the 4:3 edition was itself a cropped version (left and right) of the original theatrical edition, though I suppose it’s possible (but not likely) the film was shot in 4:3. I’d really like to see the original version…
Chubby Cheeks fun run yesterday. I took a hard fall on a gnarly section of trail and my Watch helpfully offered to call emergency services for me. Achievement unlocked ☹️.

Around the reservoir I go.
Today’s run wasn’t remotely impressive, but it’s the best I’ve felt in the month since JJ100. I’ll take the minor victory.

I may not have the iPad Smart Keyboard Folio yet, but with the help of a couple of dongles I’m getting by.
11″ iPad Pro arrived (but no keyboard yet). Initial observations:
- Very nice. The thinness feels incredible. Flat edges superior to rounded edges.
- I can’t touch-type on the on-screen landscape keyboard the way I can on the 12″.
- Camera bump surprisingly doesn’t cause a wobble.
I shot some video of our local Blue Sky Marathon a few weeks ago.
This guy ran 4 minutes faster than ever before at a 5K this morning.
Now that I’ve run my slowest (i.e. most difficult) 100 mile race at Mogollon Monster I’ve discovered the code I use to generate my Race Results page has a bug for durations longer than 24 hours.
