Running again…

Running

“on the road again…”

3 mile Saturday. 3 miles this morning. Not

Signed up for the Grand Rapids River Bank run 10k and the Chicago 1/2 Marathon in September. Also participating in the ‘Warrior Dash’ in July. Probably do some 5k’s as well.

Hoping to dump 30 lbs. Not using the Nike tracking stuff since I’m running inside. Instead using the FitBit One for now. 

Now I just need to figure out how to get the FitBit stats on the web site! They do have an API…Hmmmm…

New York Subways in the early 1980’s

See this article.

The subways that I’ve known in New York since the early 1990’s are nothing like this. New York has done a great job of cleaning up the subway system. 

They are my favorite way of getting around New York…other than walking!

IFTTT

Ran across a post about IFTTT (If This Then That) over at TidBITS. See here for the full article.

Really interesting given the focus on the ‘Internet of Things’.

See here for the web site.

New feline member of the family

Say hello to Emmett.

Emmet the cat

The inspiration for his name comes from ‘Dr. Emmett Brown’ in the ‘Back to the Future’ movies. Check out his whiskers and eyebrows and you just might agree.
