Today I ran my first official half marathon. My results are here: http://goo.gl/C6trq3 ... The Sandman Extreme Half Marathon (read all about it here: http://goo.gl/RzGgFH ) is the hardest thing I've ever done. The last mile in particular is a real beating. Although the first half is not the easiest thing in the world either. Over the first five miles you run up Sand Mountain in beautiful Wytheville, Virginia. About a thousand feet of elevation gain. By the time it's over, MapMyFitness had tracked 1,700 feet of elevation gain, and just a hair more than the requisite 13.1 miles. This was a tough, rewarding, absolutely wonderful race. I have never had so much fun getting my butt kicked.

Next, I'll start working on my 26.2 ... but not for a couple of days. I have a couple of days of grinning scheduled. :)

Beers are like rock bands in one way:  All the good names are taken.  These days, since you can't call your band The Rolling Stones, you're stuck coming up with names like And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead.  Or, to translate it to beer, Victory At Sea Peppermint Porter.

This is my review of Saucony Xodus 6 running shoes. I had these shoes for three months and put about 400 miles on them. I liked them enough to buy another pair just like them. 
This is the first time I've posted a review of running gear, and this post is specifically a review of Saucony Xodus 6 running shoes. I bought a pair of these shoes on the last day of September, 2015, and made my first run in...

That would work equally well, maybe even better, with that Zombie TV show meme.

I'm an old fart and I don't listen to much modern music. Hell, I'm not even sure how you define "modern" music. All I know is, if your band didn't exist within a couple of years of my graduation, you're modern in my eyes. Anyway, one of the few "modern" bands I actually like is Brand New. They're more or less a punk band who gets artier and more "mature" with each release. I discovered this full live set of theirs on YouTube this week. I've watched it four times or so already. I absolutely love it. This set is heavy on tracks from their two most recent (and best) albums, and I can't get enough of it.

"Not enough Emmylou" is how I generally sum up even her solo work.

I hope you guys don't mind me bragging a little bit. You probably won't since I'm bragging about you guys. The fundraising challenge officially just ended. Because of my generous friends, my run generated the fourth highest final amount of all the runners. That's fourth place out of more than fifteen THOUSAND participants. I just can't get my mind around that.

You guys rock.

Story
Tagline
I enjoy craft beer and trying to pursue activities that help me stay fairly fit. This dichotomy is as close as I get to having a complex and interesting personality.
Introduction
Formerly morbidly obese guy who, somehow, developed better habits after thirty years of self destruction.  Libertarian, optimist, cynic, humanist, believer, skeptic, deeply conflicted, profoundly alive, lucky, happy.  God or the Universe or whatever has deigned to allow me to meet the three best people I've ever even heard of, and they happen to be my brilliant son, my amazing girlfriend, and my sainted mother. I marvel every day that I get to share my goofy life with the these wonderful people.
Bragging rights
Sometimes I run seven or eight miles at a time without falling down. I also own more than nine DVDs.
