thanks to jim over at terrell daily photo for today's photo of me at the beginning of the polka fest 10k...
my time wasn't great today, but i had an excuse. last night, while preparing for the race, i reached for a 24oz beer from the top of the cooler at the convenience store - and a 24oz can next to my selection fell and hit me on the ankle. i had visible swelling and a bruise! so, i limped along today and finished my 6.2 mile run in 1:20.
It was a nice run, with a cool breeze... and even with my bad time I didn't come in last =) so all's good!

a friend did the Sky Jump Las Vegas while on vacation - it's a free fall jump off the stratosphere with just a harness attached to a couple wires... it breaks at the end, of course. everyone that i saw came out alive, but still...
i'd like to try it, but i know once i got to the top I'd be too chicken to jump or take that first step. Maybe next trip =)

jim has a good post over on his site about election material being left in the mailbox. not 'official' election material that was sent through the USPS and paid postage on - nope, this was hand delivered photo-copied pages left in the mailbox. Click over and take a look...
i think the 'scare tactics' make me want to vote against the ordinance.
Just for spite. =)

jim and i participated in the Urban Dare 2011 race through Dallas today, and it was HOT! =)
one of the tasks was to get a couple to recreate the famous kiss scene from world war II - taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt.
pretty close to the original! the couple posing for us were taking part in their own scavenger hunt - the Bachendorf's Diamond Dash Dallas...

next week, at this time, i'll be in vegas!!
we'll be staying right on Fremont Street in the old downtown area - and the new attraction is a zipline that goes right under the 'fremont st experience' light display that occurs periodically throughout the night!
LOVE VEGAS!! =)
