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.

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…

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.

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.

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.
