Here's a scientific look at vaccinations and autism, but not the way you think. Instead of talking about if vaccinations cause autism, it examines the human psychology of why people believe it does. It's a terrific, non-judgmental discussion of our natural human biases.

Run Journal - #52 aka: The Knee
For the whole 'two" of you who follow this blog, you will have noticed a severe lack of posts lately. The main reason for this is a severe lack of running. I had a long 14 mile run almost two weeks ago and about 5 miles in, my knee began to ache. This isn't...

#50 Details: 2 x 1600 meters/4 min Shoes: Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit These speed runs are getting weird. 1600 meters is essentially a mile so today's "speed" run was for a whole mile with a 4 minute recovery walk/jog before doing it a second time. I managed the ...

Just after the race this weekend. What you don't see is that I was wet head to toe. Even had "Squishy Shoe Syndrome". Still fun though!

Details: 20 easy Shoes: Hoka Huaka Short, easy run today but it was cool so I pushed the pace a bit and had some fun. The Huaka's continue to be extremely kind to my achilles for some reason, so I'll probably continue to run in them this week. I'll switch b...

I went to the PetFest today in Old Town Spring. I was there to introduce myself to the Houston Beagle Rescue folks as I hope to be doing some volunteering with them soon. It turned out that this was a huge event! There were thousands of people there with their dogs (many of which were in costume!) and dozens upon dozens of rescue groups and other pet related organizations set up. I had so much fun!

#44 Details:  20 easy Shoes: Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Not much to say. Simple short run. #45 Details: 40 tempo Shoes: Hoka Huaka Ran in the Hokas today as they, for some reason, seem to give my achilles the least trouble. It was a good run at at 8:41 pace whic...

I am very, VERY unhappy right now. My Rudy Project prescription glasses have disappeared. These were stupid expensive but worth every penny. They changed my tennis game and I used them for most runs as well. I last used them on Monday for a run and now I cannot find them anywhere. I've spent the last hour looking. There are only so many places they could be and they aren't in any of them. Grrrrrrrrr......
