Cable Bridge Run

Yesterday I ran in the Cable Bridge Run. It was alot warmer and less icy than last year. Lots of people ran again this year. There was a 1 mile, 5k and a 10k. There were nearly 400 people who ran the 10k. I ended up 28th overall and 4th out of 48 for age group (40-49). I ended up running and asterisk personal best. I ran a 38:58, my previous best is a 39:42. I am giving it an asterisk because my watch showed the course a little short. Also, I don't feel that I ran very well. At mile 1ish, I was already dead. My heart rate was already 190 bpm, and I had 5 more miles to go. I just kinda held on most of the run. At the end I did manage to run down and pass one of the ladies who were in front of me. But ended up being "chicked" by two.........

Here is a link to the 10k results:

Transportation issues

Nothings funnier than going out to your car in the morning and finding
the battery dead. I had driven the truck to work the last three days
due to the icy roads, so my car has been sitting (apparantly with the
radar detector on) in the garage.
I went to jump the battery and found out they were on opposite sides
of the cars, so the jumper cables would not reach both batteries. I
don't know if BMW planned it or not but it sure is a great idea to
have the battery in the trunk for these ocassions.
Also, speaking of vehicle issues. I had to have Rick bust into my
truck at work yesterday because someone left the keys in the ignition
and locked the doors.

Front Page

Santa and I on the front page. I can understand Santa but me, it must
have been a slow news week for the Prosser Bulletin. Actually it was
kinda fun doing the interview and communicating with the photographer
via e-mails, no face to face or phone calls these days.

Here is the link to the Prosser Bulletin's article if your really bored and want
something to do. You might have to register to be able to read full
article. If you cant read it online, M picked up one or two or 30 extra copies, let me know and she will send ya one.

released 2 hours early today. Roads are going to be a little slick
tonight and tomorrow.

Equipment Relocation Project

Before, Satellite and DVD player sitting perfectly next to the new t.v. I really see nothing wrong with this.

Now, Its all gone. Very classy. Ok, non trailer trashy at least. By the way, nice looking mantel.

Here it is, in the closet below the stairs. Bad news is that I have to get a new DVD player (darn it). The old one did not have a HDMI output. Since I ran two HDMI cables I want to use them both.
