So the courtesy staff has started to block off the "special" seats in the auditorium until I arrive. I appreciate it but... Yeah...

So it seems for me to cut minutes of my time, it needs too buckets down rain the entire time... I know most off the #MidwestVikings were set the beast, but I had fun... Moist, moist fun...

Okay, folks, convince me to buy this scope!  I've been in a building mood lately, and have several HF projects in the works, but I stumbled on this the other day and kind of want to build it.  Now, for the record, I already own at least two VERY NICE oscilloscpes and honestly can't think of what I'd need a handheld 200khz unit for, but I still have a hankering to build this (probably crap) scope.  So... why should I buy it.  What would you use it for...

I actually have some thoughts regarding some bot puppets that the CftP build, but that is neither here nor there...

It was only one of the cheapo dinky quadcopters, but it's really good for the money.

Something to think about for your next order.  :D

I did buy in to the Tiko kickstarter, but since that 3D printer won't arrive until Februaryish, I'm still required to rely on the printers of others.  We actually have 3D printers here in the available for use in the Engineering library, but they are just shy of my size requirements for my current project, so off to the internet, and I'll have them printed up by Shapeways.  They are currently running a $10 off promo, so if you have 3D needs, it's an option.
Use this promo code to save $10 when you upload and order your own design.

So it's been over a week... I can talk about this now...

Half-marathon #5 is in the bank, and it was... awful... easily the worst half I've done, and that includes the one in Chicago where I tore my ACL and MCL!!!

Don't get me wrong though... the organizers did a fine job (though the expo was kind of sparse), and it was great to have the opportunity to do a half in my hometown. I have no complaints about it as a thing... it just beat me up! I thought it was just me, but mein bruder Mark Adams turned in his worst time ever as well, so the course was... challenging...

It did feel like it was 13.1 miles of all uphill, but looking at the elevation profile on my Garmin, it doesn't seem that bad. It was my first warm weather event of the season, but I regularly do runs all summer long...

...but it was hard. By mile six, I was worried. By mile 8, I knew I wouldn't finish. By mile 9, I had completely stopped sweating, and was dizzy and wanted nothing more than to have something in my stomach so that I could puke it up...

...ugh...

Of course, mile 9 was kind of in the middle of nowhere, so I didn't want to just stop and hope the SAGs might find me... even though I was about 200 yards from a police control with two officers, I figured my best bet was to just trudge on until I found a SAG or hit a water station...

...which I did at mile 10... I drank a few... I poured a few over my head... I ate an orange, and I headed back out up the next hill... couldn't really stop at the water station... they had enough to worry about without me causing them trouble, so shuffle, shuffle, shuffle...

Somewhere around mile 11, I was passed by two of my earlier rabbits, and they asked if I needed anything and gave me the bestest ever bottle of water!!!! THANK YOU!!!! I sipped, I poured over my head, and I sipped some more...

I did get passed by a SAG after this, but of course, with actual water in my hands, I couldn't sag... That would have been wrong...

At mile 12, there was another water station right outside the fairgrounds... maybe a quarter mile from the finish... after drinking a couple cups, the nice lady filled my water bottle and on I trudged... Mark was inside the fence and shadowed me until he handed me off to Laurie and I found out how they managed to squeeze in an extra mile... an out and back within the fair grounds... Mark met up with me again on the back (with WATER), and you know that point at the end of any race where you sprint like a rabid badger towards the finish line because it's so awesome....

uhm... no... wasn't in me... I walked up to the line and stomped it as I crossed... then I found the nearest fence and just laid my head across it...

ugh...

But, after a few minutes of just standing there I was able to shuffle back to the car, and felt pretty nearly recovered (but sore) by the time we got to Mom's.

Don't know what went wrong... I ate and hydrated as usual... but it just went bad... but I finished... and I wasn't last... there were 3 or 4 people behind me (plus some DNFs)... but pretty woeful...

So, will I be back next year?

Yeah... I'm stupid like that...

PS -  The plus side?!?  The race photos were actually free... but for some reason, they don't have a single one of me... got a few nice ones of Laurie doing the 5k, though...
