that guy-fully made up and no place to go except out walking the dog

Towards the end of my bike ride yesterday a small group of us were finishing a lap of Mercer Island and we saw a woman walking her dog.

Now say what you will about Mercer Island but it's nothing if not

  • white
  • rich
  • white (oops, I already said that...)
  • inhabited by lots of badly aging empty nesters

Shelley runs the Zappos.com Las Vegas Half Marathon

Shelley just sent me her results from this race today:

I am so impressed! She has not had much time to train at all what with work and her heinous commute and trying to schedule stuff for us to do together around my constant exercising so to only be a couple of seconds slower than the Iron Girl 10 km pace she ran earlier this fall is awesome. Way to go.

BMX Schwinn Varsity

Seattle is awash with bicycles in general and in the circles I travel it's that times 10. Even so, sometimes I see a bike that really amazes me; like this Schwinn Varsity here that I spotted on the UW campus one day.

Shelley runs the ryka Iron Girl 10 km

Nice! Today Shelley ran twice around Green Lake (with a little detour thrown in) for her first running race since I have met her.

Okay, 10 km is 6.2 miles and so her pace is about 9:53? Her goal was to go under 10 minutes per mile so this is fantastic.
