Half in the rain

Runs I'm still considering for the rest of this year.

I didn't even sign up for Bay to Breakers and considering both the heat yesterday and the general insanity of my life right now that's just as well. But I refuse to give up on my image of myself as a runner, even though training has sort of gone down the tube lately.

Freedom Road 5K and Jefferson Mile
A Benefit for Law Enforcement

Since the Norway Day Race for Arctic Awareness doesn't seem to be happening this year, Ivan and I are probably going to do this instead.

Plate to Plate
Sunday August 30
This is the even I was actually training for when the first accident happened last year. It's a 5-K that raises money for Project Open Hand and you actually get to finish up by running across home plate at ATT Park.

Free tickets to that day’s 1:05 p.m. baseball game between the San Francisco Giants and the Colorado Rockies will be given to the first 3,000 people who sign up for the event.

USA Half Marathon
Sunday, October 31
I really want to do a half marathon this year and I've missed the registration for Nike. I don't think I can get it together in time for the SF Marathon at the end of July.
The problem with the USA is that it includes the gnarly hill under the Golden Gate Bridge. Also---October 31---Halloween. I'm still hoping to be at the Mint that afternoon in costume, not to mention the fact that I'm also still planning on "officiating" over the Come as You're Not party. That could be a lot to do in one day. But if I don't do it, then that's pretty much the last shot at a half for 2009, and I'd have to wait until January for the Kaiser 1/2 Marathon. Which might not be a bad idea either.

Starting with a note from my friend Ivan

My sister is working for an online business magazine. She has been given her own travel blog and I think it is pretty good (okay, I'm a little biased). She told me if she can get up to 100 people "following" her she will get a bonus. Well, the big brother wants to help his sis so I am asking some of my friends and sign up to follow. Don't worry, it will not cost a thing and I don't think you can get the swine flu from this site. I appreciate you guys taking the time to read this email and hopefully look at the website.

You sign up to follow by clicking below her picture. Thanks again.

here is website:

I'm not in for a cut of the loot, but Ivan is an awesome guy, the one who helped get Psycho-sis' TV over to the board and care last week, among the many other things he's done for me over the years.

Prompt #139

I wish I didn't feel so strong about you
Like happiness and love revolve around you..
Trying to catch your heart
Is like trying to catch a star..
