Will (standing in solid mud from a day long rain) rings the bell at #acrosstheyears after setting a new personal record of 37 miles. After 12 hours on course he’s now sleeping soundly. Meanwhile, Melissa has just passed 100 km.

Will completed a marathon in 7h20m and kept right on going with his new friend Danica. He is currently at 29.4 miles and very eager to get to 37 so he can ring the bell they have for anyone who sets a new personal record.

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…

I had the good fortune of being selected in the Western States Endurance Run lottery on Saturday, with just a 1% 3% chance. Looks like I’ll be heading to Squaw Valley next June ?‍♂️.
