No Mt. Washington for me...

Saw this morning that I was not one of the lucky lottery winners for Mt. Washington this year, or did I have a resume strong enough to by-pass the lottery - ok I didn't submit the resume so I'm not 100% sure that I couldn't have gotten in...

It's amazing how easy this is to accept. I think I must be quite happy with what I've been able to do the past 15 years I've been running. Yea, I'd love to do more and will try new things every year, but it's nice to be in a place where not being able to do a race is really no big deal. Perhaps this has something to do with the older I get the faster time goes by. I know that Mt. Washington 2011 is right around the corner.

Lately I've been getting the biggest rush out of training. I was doing some 3 minute uphill reps the other day and Tima was running next to me barking at me to get moving. She was all over me having a great time out there with me, she's 9 years old and still the one pushing the training runs.

Came across this great cover of one of my favorite songs of my favorite band, the Pogues. Too bad Shane McGowan can't sing or speak anymore, but glad to hear covers like this.
I'm in Raleigh-Durham today and woke up with this car parked next to mine. I've bet Dr. Tommy that the guy that drives this car is 5'2".


  1. Okay - don't know the Pogues, but you have mentioned them enough that I will check them out.

    That Cage Fighter sticker is hilarious. Shit, why not put "I AM CHUCK NORRIS" on the back of your car ...

    Mount W ... yeah, bummer, but, I get it - no big deal. Other fish to fry and glad to do it.

  2. Best to check out the Pogues studio recorded stuff from the 80's and early 90's. Anything recent/live is just sad. Shane McGowen did mangage to keep it togather, a little, on the Henry Rollins Show a few years ago.
    Cage Fighter guy's personalized liscence plate is "No Mercy"
    I'd love to try Mt. Evans, just a matter of getting to CO in June.
