  • A cloudy morning. Will it be a good day or bad? Will it go quickly or not? Guess the day should start. #
  • Time to visit with Mr. Gym. I really don’t feel like sweating today, but what can you do? #

This building overlooks the entire downtown mall of Charlottesville. Everyone is wondering when/if construction will continue. It does provide some nice pictures in the current state. I adjusted the tone curves a bit, desaturated some color, and added a bit of split tone.

On Saturday I took a shot at a long run but the freakishly warm day (over 80 in March!) was a bit much. I made it 8 miles and then decided walking the last two was more to my liking.

Sunday was even warmer than Saturday. 84 degrees. A week ago it was 24 degrees. My body didn’t want to deal with it so I went to the gym and swam laps for 30 minutes.

Today was a bit cooler. Only 78 degrees. My body was ready and off I went. After 11.5 miles I made it back home. Very tired but feeling pretty good. This Saturday is the first big “official” race of the year. I’ll see how my body feels when trying to run for time in the Matha Jefferson 8k run. Two weeks after that is the C-Ville 10 Miler (the biggest race of the year here in town). I’ll let you know how it goes.

Tomorrow will be a nice day of rest. My body is already looking forward to it 🙂

One of our local buildings is the tallest thing in town. Construction seems to have stopped recently due to financial issues. A building in Poland has been under construction since 1975 and got the nickname “Skeletor.” Hopefully this hotel won’t do the same thing.

I took this shot late one morning when the clouds were breaking up over the building. When I read the story about Skeletor I immediately thought of this picture.

  • I really have to do the gym tonight, but I’m waiting until the “Monday rush hour” ends. Does everyone go to the gym on Monday? #
  • I’m still tweaking the style sheet for this site so I can’t guarantee things look perfect. What can I say…my CSS skills are so-so at best. #
  • I need to create a fav icon soon. #
  • Ooo…so lazy. Skipping gym. Bad Raman. Bad. #
  • Digging through boxes looking for books to donate for a book sale. Stumbled on my thesis defense overheads. Party like it’s 1996. #
  • Love Safari 4. Just wish it could have full plugin support like FF. #
  • I’m pretty tired. I’m going to take a shot at a long run tomorrow evening. It is supposed to be warm (60ish) tomorrow. #
  • @explorelearning Way to go! in reply to explorelearning #
  • My glass of orange juice tastes so good this morning. I think I’ll have another. #
  • Did a 9 mile run at 8:50 pace. I think I will sleep rather well tonight. #
  • Very long week. Should be cloudy tomorrow, so hoping to sleep in. Probably gym tomorrow and run on Sunday. If I feel pumped 🙂 #
  • Heading to gym. #
  • Interesting article about the iPhone in Japanese media. Very similar to the “pass a secret” game in grade school. http://tinyurl.com/anklow #
