July 28th, 2018: Did the Bad
Bass half marathon with Virginia. Our time was nothing to brag
about, but we knew it wouldn't be. Started an hour before the
"race" with the hiker division. That meant we were about half
way around the course when the first of the runners started
passing us. The really fast ones were poetry in motion. Very
fit guys hauling ass. We did our best to stay out of their
ways. Then it was like being a spectator with an awesome seat
(if you don't count the fact that we were sometimes in the way
due to narrow trail issues) for a few miles. Then for the last
few miles it was almost like running in place, in that the
people ahead of and behind us didn't change much as the miles
melted away. Gotta do some getting in shape!
was fun being a honcho for San Jose Bike Party's Green Ride.
5/1/18: Got a nice email from someone that wanted me to look
at this website. Seemed like good information on a topic we
all care about.
we talked on the phone Nassim made this great "postcard" out
of my words. Couldn't resist putting the version above here.
Green shirts are on Tian &
Virginia at the Go Green race start in Hellyer Park. Tian
finished in a PR 3:27:17. We got about the same time.
New jersey from the San Jose
Barracudas free jersey game.
August 5th: The microwave oven
that inhabited the kitchen for many years made a loud noise
and stopped cooking stuff a few weeks ago. Probably I got at
least a dozen good years of cooking out of it. Took me a while
to get around to ordering a replacement. Didn't want to get
one from the same company, that one should have lasted a bit
longer. Ordered this GE at Lowe's because they had bike
parking for customers, unlike the other store around here that
sells built in microwave ovens. It finally got here on Sunday.
So happy to be able to heat water without warming the kitchen
