went with the galls, and luckly scott had just got back from a 100 mile race through the mountians, so i could keep up.  there were some angry drivers on the road.  got home and read the "road rage" article in bicycling magizine, made me laugh.

on trainer.

i'm afraid after watching "super-size me", reading "fast food nation", and having a better understanding of nutrition has forever tainted my vision about the fast food industry, specifically mcdonalds.  the commericals they run these days "promoting healthy lifestyles" with their food just seems like a way to sell their product.  i don't think they really care about our health, they are just back pedaling because if people see them in a negative light, people won't buy their stuff.  they may have some feeling of social responsibility, but i think a majority of their motivation is to make money.

and then that idea begins to spread into the food industry as a whole.  kids cereals made with whole grain like lucky charms?  well, they may start with whole grain, but it is still the same reprocessed sugar coated junk.  don't get me wrong, these foods are delicious, but they are engineered to be.  and i'm not bashing the hard working people that produce these foods, i don't like the misleading advertising. 

people will eat what they want to, and that is fine, but when someone is eating something under the misguideance that is healthy and advertisers intentionally lead people down that path in order to sell their stuff, that seems wrong.  of course, who is going to buy something called "super-reprocess engineered high sugar o's!"  meh, i'll stop now.  it's nothing you guys haven't heard already.

 

Wednesday - August 27

Run
  • 32m
  • 4.00 miles
  • 08m /Mi

stayed up late moving appliances and cleaning behind them.  sleep was very necessary.  i am going to run this afternoon, but hopefully i can stop sweating before i go back to work.

i am not going to sign up for IMWI '09.  i compared training time for the ironman vs the half iron from last year and there is a HUGE time commitment difference.  perhaps i will postpone the ironman indefinetly.  we'll see, but on the plus side, i think i'm going to sign up for the half piggy again!

guess who's been selected to attend a conference in sunny san fransisco?  yeah, that's right, me!  i love going to visit places i cannot spell properly (which doesn't narrow it down).
