Beautiful morning for a run! The sun was just coming up and it was 51 degrees with no wind and virtually no cars on the road. Fun times!

Also, I was able to test out the shirt that I plan to leave in my run special needs bag.

I went out to Lake Jordan and swam at Ebenezer Church. The parking lot was empty -- expect of a half dozen or so other swimmers ;-) First wetsuit swim since Lake Logan.


I finished my workout stuff by about noon.  Kevin planned to be in Brevard this weekend but he crashed his bike on Thursday and cut his leg, requiring a few stitches. He was told that he cannot ride for a few days so the trip was off.  We ran a few errands in the afternoon, went to Carrboro for a bit, and then watched the Canes game at night.

I also got my SBR and SN bags out.  I've used the same 2 gallon bags the last two years.  Bike SN is done.  I have to do laundry to finish the rest but I made a good dent in it.  I also managed to locate some throw away shoes and a top for before the race (it's donation-wear or trash, we don't get the pre race stuff back).  I'd like to get something more than a LS tee for before the race and I've asked Kevin to see if he has anything that he's about to get rid of.  Otherwise, it'll be a $6 sweatshirt.  If I want something other than tri shorts in the morning, I'll be sporting some purple sweat pants.  Very high fashion!


Pre-swim:  “throw away” shoes and “throw away” sweatshirt.  These items will not be returned.  (bring goggles, swim cap, wetsuit, lube)

T1: bike shoes, dry tri shorts, arm warmers, short sleeved jersey, socks, possibly a vest (or possibly a zip lock bag to put under my jersey and dump at the first water stop), sportshield, chamois cream, towel (helmet, gloves, headsweats liner at bike; nutrition/hydration on bike). Remember to bring nutrition and water bottles with you on race morning.

Bike Special Needs:  CO2 cartridges, spare tube, extra nutrition (in case I drop something), extra chamois cream <- this bag may not be returned

T2: running shoes, running socks, hat, race belt, tri top, sportshield (roll on), tylenol (plus one in race belt)

Run Special Needs: Long sleeve shirt, sportshield (wipe), glasses case (will drop off sunglasses and get shirt)

√ Ride tonight!

Made it over 5000 miles tonight. 


I've mentioned taking Coursera classes here before and I thought it was past due for an update.  I just completed a class called Generation Rx.  It was very good.  I think that I must not have read the course description too well (oops!) because it wasn't want I expected (it's about the prescription drug abuse problem) but the instructor was so awesome that I stayed for it.  ;-)

I'm about to finish up a class on Google -- Understanding the Media by Understanding Google.  This is also a good class.  It's about how Google has changed the media industry, newspapers in particular and how Google makes money (AdWords, etc.).  The content is good but its a bit time consuming.  Also, he requires that we post to forums and I hate that.  Odd since I have not problems posting to BT!

Finally, I'm just starting Securing Digital Democracy.  This is a computer security class as seen through the lens of voting machines.  The instructor is one of the guys that discredited Diebold voting machines.  It's been fun so far in a No Way! kind of way.  For example, do you think that if you encrypted files on voting machines that you'd use a different private key for each machine or one private key for all of the machines? If you had a lock over the memory card slot, would you use one key for all of the locks or a different key for each lock?  Would you put a high res picture of the key on your website that clearly shows the key number?  Doh!

√ Run tonight!

We actually saw the bright orb in the sky today!  If memory serves, it is often referred to as The Sun.  It's been a loonnngggg time since we saw it around here -- Saturday October 5th!  I think that a nice pleasant high pressure system be trapped over NC for the next two weeks to make up for it!  You know, one with pretty blue skies, no wind...

Get out there and make your dreams happen!

Today's Gratitude:  Today I am happy that I got a peak at the sun!
